Sudden Emergency Accidents In Florida

The “sudden emergency” doctrine indicates when a person driving is not be held to the same standard of care as someone who had time to think about and choose an alternative course of action. Someone faced with a sudden emergency can raise this doctrine as a defense when he shows that he exercised the same degree of care that an ordinary prudent person, under the circumstances would have used under the same or similar circumstances. An example of when this defense may be used in a lawsuit is one where a driver may have had an unexpected heart attack or unanticipated loss of consciousness while driving.
