Any casual observer can see that the roadways in our area are getting busier and busier lately with so many people moving to Palm Beach County. Typical drivers in the Boca Raton, Delray Beach and Boynton Beach area are often older senior citizens, visitors unfamiliar with local roads, new residents and young, inexperienced drivers which can lead to a dangerous mix and an increase of car accidents on our local roadways, from A1A to Atlantic Ave., I-95 to Glades Road.
Last week as a matter of fact there was a horrific crash in Delray Beach involving a senior citizen who ran into a car driven by a rush hour driver. The senior died, and several people were injured in the multi-car crash on Linton Blvd. between Military Trail and Jog Road. One car involved in the wreck ended up in the driveway of American Heritage School, where students and teachers were returning to class after winter break.
When wrecks like this happen, Delray Beach car accident lawyers like David Zappitell are typically called upon to help the crash victims pursue their legal rights.
Boca’s Dangerous Intersection
One particularly confusing area to drive is 20th Street and Federal Highway, at 5th Avenue shops in Boca Raton. At this intersection, you have the convergence of several busy streets including 5th avenue, Federal Highway and 20th Street ( where Flakowitz Bagel store is ). A lot of traffic is moving in and out of the area because of the Publix supermarket and the 5th Avenue shops, so drivers need to be particularly cautious driving in this potentially dangerous intersection.
Delray’s Most Dangerous Avenue
According to The Palm Beach Post, two of the most dangerous intersections in Palm Beach County are South Military Trail and Atlantic Avenue and Atlantic Avenue and Lyons Road, Delray Beach. In fact there is no other intersection in Palm Beach County where a driver is more likely to be involved in a collision and suffer an injury than the intersection of West Atlantic Avenue and Lyons Road in suburban Delray Beach. There were more crashes at this intersection in 2020 than at any other in the county, according to the county’s car accident rate (the number of collisions per 1 million cars).
A vast number of accident-related suits in the Boca Raton / Delray Beach area are being filed each day at the Delray Beach courthouse at 200 W Atlantic Ave, and in many cases, people are not attaining the benefits they have a legal right to receive unless they have retained an experienced car injury attorney like David Zappitell.
For example, not everyone realizes the deadline for submitting claims for a car accident in Florida is usually four years, which is an important consideration. A skilled accident attorney like Mr. Zappitell will assist you with all of the information you need to get the most significant advantage from your case.
