Tampa Auto Accident Attorneys for Those Injured in Accidents Close to Home
The auto accident attorneys at Clark & Martino, P.A. in Tampa are familiar with the phenomenon that a majority of accidents take place close to home. In a report published by the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, it is estimated that more than 52 percent of all auto accidents occur with five miles of home, and that 69 percent of accidents happen within ten miles. Why is this so? The prevailing theory is that when we are driving close to home, we are lulled into a false sense of security that leads to unsafe driving practices. An example of this is “rolling” through a stop sign because we know the intersection typically isn’t a busy one. Of course, most of the driving that people do takes place in the general vicinity of where they live anyway, so perhaps it’s natural that a majority of auto accident take place there.
Whatever the case, it’s worth bearing in mind that auto accidents can happen whenever – and wherever – we least expect them to.
