Belal Hamideh Represents New Accident Victims as Human Driving Errors Rise

Belal Hamideh, a wrongful death lawyer in Long Beach, has represented more vehicular accident victims in wrongful death cases than in previous years. This follows findings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that human error leads to more vehicular accidents. 

The NHTSA found that in 2,046,000 of 2,189,000 car accidents, "the critical reason (was) attributed to drivers." That comprises "94 percent of the crashes at the national level." 

Those human errors were further classified by the NHTSA into four classifications: "Recognition Error," "Decision Error," "Performance Error," and "Non-Performance Error." 

"Recognition Errors" were defined as including the "driver's inattention, internal and external distractions, and inadequate surveillance." "Decision Errors" included "driving too fast for conditions, too fast for the curve, false assumption of others' actions, illegal maneuvers, and misjudgment of gap or others' speed." 

"Overcompensation, poor direction control, etc." made up "Performance Errors," while "Non-Performance Errors" was mostly defined as the driver falling asleep. 

"These disturbing findings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show just how many responsibilities we have when we're behind the wheel of our cars. You have to pay attention to road conditions, eliminate distractions to the best of your ability inside and outside the vehicle, while properly judging the speed of your vehicle and others, managing your speed, and following the rules, and, of course, making certain that you're awake enough to be behind the wheel. For many years, I've represented those who have been injured by another's actions in vehicular accidents and in a perfect world, I'd never have to do so again. The best thing you can do for yourself and those you care about is to drive as safely as possible. I will be here to aggressively represent those who are injured in accidents through another's actions," said Belal Hamideh. 

While wrongful death lawyer Belal Hamideh is centered in Long Beach, he and his firm represent clients all throughout California. Rated as an "Excellent" featured personal injury attorney by Avvo, Belal Hamideh has also been recognized as one of The National Top 40 Under 40 Trial Lawyers.
