No matter how safe of a driver you are, some car crashes can’t be avoided. Do you know that following a few simple safety tips can greatly increase your chances of surviving a West Palm Beach car crash?

Our accident attorneys in West Palm Beach give these tips:

  1. Wear your seatbelt. Almost half of fatal Florida car crashes involve drivers and passengers who are not wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash. In a West Palm Beach car crash, seat belts are your best defense against serious injury and death. If you don’t buckle up, not only do you endanger yourself, but you endanger others. If you are thrown into another person in a high speed crash, they could be crushed and killed.

    So, wear your seatbelt properly. Make sure that it is buckled across your lap, not your stomach and that the shoulder belt rests on your shoulder. This will prevent you from slipping under the seatbelt.

  2. Make sure your headrest is properly adjusted. The top of the head restraint should be even with the top of the head. Adjust your headrest so it is as close to your head as possible.
  3. Sit as far away from the steering wheel as possible.
  4. Make sure your child is restrained in an approved child safety seat. You can learn more in our articles, “Florida Car Seat Law: What You Need to Know to Keep Your Child Safe” and “Not All Car Seats Are The Same: How To Choose A Car Seat”. Children who are restrained in seatbelts can slip out from under the belt and become missiles. An improperly seat belt can cause serious internal injuries and spinal cord damage.

    I would describe the process as a relief and a weight off my shoulders.

        
    "My boyfriend and I were t-boned by a driver who wasn't paying attention. All I remember is being tossed around in the passenger seat. It was terrifying. I began to seek medical treatment, and someone who had seen my type of injuries before recommended that I call Craig Goldenfarb. I didn't call right away; but a few weeks later, I began to receive things in the mail from the insurance company, and that's when I thought it was time to call. Now that my case is resolved, I would describe the whole experience as a relief, thanks to Craig Goldenfarb.

  • Great team!

        I fell at one of the local grocery stores 2 yrs ago. I have never sued anyone before and was clueless what to do. I saw the ad for the Goldenfarb Law Offices and called them. I told them the story and they took it from there. I was able to have my injuries taken care of promptly. This is the office to call!
