Jacksonville Auto Accident and Injury Lawyer- Tailgating



auto accidents caused by tailgating


Tailgating is a contributing factor in more than one third of all car accidents in Florida. Tailgating is very dangerous behavior because it increases the risk of a collision by reducing the amount of reaction time for the second vehicle. Drivers who are being tailgated feel menaced by the other car. As a car accident attorneys, we realize that many people are in a hurry, stressed out and believe that tailgating will speed up their journey.  We have seen that tailgaters sometimes have anger management issues, such as road rage, which needs proper treatment. 


When tailgating leads to an accident, the results are sometimes devastating. Injuries, including head injuries and fractures are common. Many times there are more than one vehicle involved and fault has to be investigated. Michael E.
