Every time you drive, you put your life on the line. When operating a vehicle, you not only have to check your own decisions, but you need to remain vigilant of the drivers around you. Unfortunately, you can’t prepare for every situation. There are factors that will always be outside of your control. Don’t pay the price for someone else’s mistake. We offer the representation you need to get fair reparation for an automotive collision.
Consider the Cause
There are many factors that can lead to a crash. While not all of them are easily apparent, we have provided a list of the most common causes of auto impacts. If you have been in an accident where one of these circumstances was involved, you may be qualified to claim compensation for damages.
There’s a reason you get a ticket for driving over the speed limit. Speeding not only reduces a driver’s ability to properly react, but it increases the damage done if an accident occurs.
Although it’s a relatively new danger, texting is one of the top factors in modern vehicular collisions. Using your phone while driving is often considered to be just as dangerous as drunken driving.
Not all accidents are caused by driver neglect. If your collision occurred during hazardous weather, such as rain, snow or fog, ensure that you hire legal aid that has experience dealing with this type of claim.
Distracted or Reckless Driving
There doesn’t always have to be a phone in a driver’s hand for them to be unfocused. Any activity that diverts attention away from the road is considered to be reckless or distracted driving. Tailgating is also considered to be a common cause for collisions.
Being tired drastically slows your reaction time. Although it may seem like a rare incident, falling asleep at the wheel is an all too frequent occurrence. Don’t let someone else’s neglect harm your life.
We’ve all seen the commercials warning about drunken driving. Unfortunately, operating a vehicle under the influence is still one of the most common causes of automotive accidents.
Not all cars are created equally. We will help you determine if your collision was caused by a defect in the construction of yours or the other driver’s vehicle.
