Common causes of car accidents in Fort Pierce
Car accidents happen in Fort Pierce every day. While there are many reasons these collisions occur, certain causes are reported more commonly than others.
- Distracted driving
Each year, thousands of accidents caused by distracted driving occur throughout the state of Florida—and the number is increasing. Distractions range from using a smartphone or the car’s dashboard system to text, scroll, navigate or play music, eating and drinking, and talking to other people, whether on the phone or in-person.
- Reckless behavior
In Fort Pierce, car accidents are frequently caused by reckless behavior, such as running a stop sign, speeding, or disobeying traffic signals. Improperly made left-hand turns are also a common cause of car accidents in Fort Pierce.
- Drunk driving
Drinking and driving is one of the most dangerous things a person can do. In the state of Florida, a large percentage of highway fatalities are caused by drunk driving. Car accidents in Fort Pierce caused by drunk driving can be particularly devastating for everyone involved.
- Hazardous conditions
Fort Pierce is known for having sudden torrential downpours that lead to poor visibility, flooded streets, and storm debris. Hazardous conditions such as these increase the risk of a car accident occurring.
- Pedestrians, cyclists, and bikers
Fort Pierce has a tropical climate, so while we get afternoon thunderstorms, we get plenty of sunshine too. This leads to a high number of pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists all year round. For this reason, car accidents involving pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcycles are more frequent in areas like Fort Pierce. Learn more about Fort Pierce motorcycle accidents here.

Car accident situations that make it essential to have personal injury lawyers
- Your injuries are severe
Serious injuries from car accidents include broken bones, burns, soft tissue damage, head or brain injuries, [Link to new Fort Pierce Brain Injury Page], spinal cord damage and paralysis, and wrongful death. [Link to new Fort Pierce Wrongful Death Page] If you find yourself in this situation, you are likely facing expensive medical bills. Hiring a car accident attorney in Fort Pierce will help you get the compensation you need to not only cover your medical bills, but pay for your pain and suffering, reimburse lost wages, take care of your family, and give you financial stability in your future.
- There’s uncertainty about who is at fault
The state of Florida is a “no-fault” state, which means that in the event of a car accident, both drivers turn to their own insurance companies to make claims, regardless of who is at fault. This is why all Florida drivers are required to carry Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance. But if you suffered a serious injury that could not be financially covered by your PIP insurance, you have the legal right to pursue a claim against the at-fault party. However, it may be difficult to prove the negligence of the other driver and defend your innocence of any wrongdoing. This is where an experienced car accident lawyer in Fort Pierce can help.
- Your settlement is lower than expected
If you decide not to hire a personal injury lawyer to handle your car accident claim, you run the risk of receiving a smaller settlement amount. Insurance companies are known to offer lowball offers because they want to minimize the amount of money they pay out. While we understand the urgency of needing money after an accident, you should not accept an initial settlement offer. Hiring a car accident lawyer in Fort Pierce will open the door to negotiations, which almost always results in walking away with more money than what is originally offered.
