A Word From A Client

“John Willis and his secretary Helene did an outstanding job on my case.  I was very much satisfied with their service and the way they handled my case. I walked up to John's office by contacting him on phone and received me warmly. He spent enough time with me going through the case listening to every minute detail I was talking. He helped me to get good treatment and also got me compensation. I would highly recommend John Willis to all my friends in case of any auto accidents."

Electric Scooter Dangers

In 2018, more than 39 million trips were taken on scooters. National and local cities like Delray Beach are considering banning electric and motorized scooters until regulations are in place and infrastructure and roadways are prepared to accommodate a rider.

While death statics are new and incomplete, Consumer Reports (CR) confirmed that at least eight people in the U.S. have died while using a rentable e-scooter since the fall of 2017. CR also tabulated injuries from 110 hospitals in 47 U.S. cities and found that at least 1,500 riders had been injured since e-scooters were introduced in late 2017.

Safety advocates want safety measure in place requiring operators to use bike lanes, wear helmets, set speed limits of 15 mph, set an age limit of 18, limit the number of riders to one, ensure riders know the traffic laws that apply, and to restrict cell phone usage while scooting to name a few. They also want to ensure that rental companies keep their e-scooters in good working condition and are free of defects.

Florida Auto Accidents

Everyday negligence on the part of motorists is the number one cause of car accidents in Florida and across the country. Common forms of driver negligence include:
  • Intoxication: Motorists who drink and drive put themselves, other drivers, and any passersby at serious risk of injury.
  • Exhaustion: There is a spike of car accidents every day around 5 PM, at the end of the workday. Not only are more people driving during this hour, but they are also tired and hungry.
  • Distraction: Texting and driving has become a serious problem and may cause anywhere between 25% and 40% of all crashes, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
  • Recklessness: Speeding, swerving through traffic, and rounding corners quickly are all dangerous yet widespread driving behaviors.

Vehicle Technology & Older Drivers

A new AAA Foundation study has found that motor vehicle technology like navigations systems and music pairing are major distractions for all motorists and an especially big risk to older drivers. Older drivers are less familiar with technology and often get frustrated with audio commands or touchscreens. So much so that drivers between 55 to 75 take their eyes off the road an average of eight seconds or longer compared to those age 21 to 26.

While these systems were intended to help drivers, complexity and poor design, not age, are putting drivers at harm. AAA recommends that drivers avoid these systems while on the road or pull over to the side of the road, unless there is an emergency. They also recommend drivers learn and practice using these new systems and technology before getting behind the wheel.
