The Snowbirds Have Arrived: Let’s Keep Everyone Safe
Although the winter weather didn’t arrive with the bang that is normally expected up north and out in the Midwest, it is now in full swing and the snowbirds have arrived. Regardless of whether they come from upstate New York or Minnesota, many snowbirds rush to Florida in search of beautiful beaches and sunshine-filled days.
As just about any Boca Raton injury attorney knows, accidents occur throughout the state on a daily basis, even after snowbirds have long gone home. Still, many residents, tourists and snowbirds alike experience automobile accidents more frequently, primarily because there are many more people and vehicles to contend with on Florida roadways.
Depending on the severity of the incident, injuries (both minor and major) are common to automobile accidents. Some of the more common injuries stem from slips and falls; automobile crashes, as well as accidents involving wave runners, jet skis, motorcycles and boats; swimming pool incidents and dog bites or animal attacks, just to name a few things.
The injuries that occur can result in extensive medical costs for the injured, and depending on the nature of the accident, some injured individuals may experience pain and suffering or even death. So, what can Floridians do to keep themselves and others as safe as possible?
Floridians and everyone traveling on area roadways are encouraged to stay mindful of the following tips that will aid in keeping motorists as safe as possible.
The key to driving under any circumstances is to remain calm, stay mentally alert and keep watch when on Florida roadways.
