Long Beach wrongful-death attorney Belal Hamideh is representing more car accident victims in wrongful-death cases than he has in years past. Previous findings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration showed that human error leads to more vehicle accidents.

NHTSA found that of 2,189,000 crashes, 2,046,000 were “attributable to the driver as a critical cause.” This includes “94% of all crashes nationwide.”

NHTSA divides these human errors further into four categories: “Recognition Errors,” “Decision Errors,” “Performance Errors,” and “Non-Performance Errors.”

“Misrecognition” was defined to include “driver inattention, internal and external distraction, and inadequate monitoring.” “Decision errors” include “driving too fast in conditions, driving too fast around a curve, wrongly assuming the actions of others, illegal maneuvering, and misjudgment of gaps or speed of others.”

“Overcompensation, poor directional control, etc.” makes up for “performance errors,” while “non-performance errors” are defined primarily as drivers falling asleep.

“These troubling findings from NHTSA show just how much responsibility we have when we drive our cars. You have to pay attention to road conditions and do your best to eliminate interfering vehicles inside and outside of your car while correctly Judging the speed of your vehicle and other vehicles, managing your speed, following the rules and of course making sure you are sober enough to be behind the wheel. Over the years I have represented those who have been injured by the actions of others in car accidents and in a perfect world , I will never have to do this 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 actively represent those injured in accidents due to the actions of others, ’ said Belal Hamideh.

Belal Hamideh has been named an “Outstanding” Featured Personal Injury Attorney by Avvo and has also been recognized as one of the nation’s Top 40 Trial Lawyers Under 40.
