Tropical Storm Fay brought winds, rain, and many automobile accidents in Jacksonville, Florida and other areas of the State including Orange Park, St. Augustine, Julington Creek, Fernandina Beach, Amelia Island, Middleburg, and MacClenny. During bad weather, drivers have a duty to be careful and safe in the operation of the vehicle. Tropical Storm Fay certainly is not the sole reason for the automobile accidents. Wet and windy roads require the drivers operate their vehicles more carefully. Traffic and all drivers should operate their vehicles in recognition of these conditions. Drivers should give themselves more braking room and slow down any time that there is a problem with visibility. Yes, some accidents are by their nature resulted solely by an Act of God. Many others result from carelessness and driver inattention / negligence. A Florida personal injury attorney should be contacted to answer questions arising from an automobile accident. Tropical Storm or not – accident victims have a right to representation and recovery of compensation for all injuries caused by the negligence or inattention of others.
