HELPING BOCA RATON ACCIDENT VICTIMS GET THE COMPENSATION THEY DESERVE
Boca Raton, or Boca, as it is known by its locals and frequent visitors, really is a remarkable city with vast amounts of things to see and do. Located in Palm Beach County, this city has dozens of golf courses, spectacular beaches, the finest hotels and a variety of art museums.
Unfortunately, this beautiful city also averages 2,600 car accidents each year. In 2010 alone, there were almost 200 accidents that involved significant injuries; this according to Boca’s city records. Three of the most dangerous streets in Boca are Glades Road, Palmetto Park Road and Yamato Road. It is common to see rear-end collisions and sideswipe accidents when these roads are congested during rush hour traffic. At night, these same roads can have stretches of no traffic and can be tempting for drivers to speed – resulting in much more serious accidents like head-on collisions and vehicle rollovers that often lead to fatalities.
DIFFERENT DRIVING HABITS CAN LEAD TO CAR ACCIDENTS
The unfortunate reality for those driving in Boca is that the city is located in a highly populated area, with a mixture of people that may have different driving habits. A high population on its own will naturally increase the number of accidents on the road. Add to the equation the number of senior drivers (may have slower reaction times), college students (drunk driving or younger driving habits like speeding), as well as vacationers (unfamiliarity with the city and roadways) and it is no wonder why car accidents are common in Boca Raton.
It does not take long for someone to be on the roads in Boca in order to witness speeding cars, vehicles changing lanes without turn signals, motorists only pausing at four way stop intersections, continuous use of cellphones while driving and other dangerous driving habits. It is quite apparent that these are not good practices when it comes to getting behind the wheel of a motor vehicle, but they can be seen daily throughout the roads ways in Boca Raton.
