What Did the Other Driver Do Wrong?
It is not enough to simply say that the other driver hit you and caused your car accident. You have to be ready to back up your statements with convincing evidence and arguments. Our attorneys can investigate your crash to figure out what the other driver did wrong, so we can prove that you are owed compensation from them, not the other way around.
Car accidents are often caused by these driver mistakes and reckless behaviors:
- Distracted driving: Nearly every driver has a smartphone, which they keep close at hand, sometimes too close at hand. When a driver has become distracted by their phone or any other type of distraction, the risk of them causing a crash will dramatically increase because they are effectively driving with their eyes and ears closed, and their hands off the wheel.
- Drunk driving: Intoxicated drivers are unable to safely control their vehicles, and often cause car accidents because of it. The slightest change to a person’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level is enough to cause dangerous intoxication and its side effects, like blurred vision, worsened reaction time, and shaky steering.
- Speeding: Reckless driving takes many forms, but one of the most common and dangerous forms is speeding. When a speed limit is posted, it has been carefully calculated based on the road’s typical conditions. Therefore, it is impossible to break the speed limit and still drive safely and responsibly.
- Tailgating: Rear-end collisions become more likely when a driver is tailgating the other or following too closely. The driver who is tailgating won’t be able to react if there is a sudden braking event. If they are distracted, then they might not notice that the traffic in front of them is gradually slowing, causing a crash that way.
Is It Worth Hiring a Lawyer for a Car Accident?
Many people wonder if it is worth hiring a car accident attorney. The answer depends on the details of your crash. Minor crashes that do not cause any injuries and only minimal vehicular damage usually do not require the attention of a legal professional because the damages are so low. Accidents that involve serious injuries and totaled vehicles, though, should be handled with the assistance of an attorney.
Other reasons why it is worth hiring a car accident lawyer:
- Avoid mistakes: Filing and managing a car accident claim will involve numerous liability laws and insurance company regulations, as well as legal expectations for how to create a claim. To reduce your risk of making a clerical error that could jeopardize your recovery, you should work with an attorney who knows the ins and outs of everything.
- Demand the right damages: How much money should the liable driver’s insurance company pay you for your damages? Even if you have a guess, how can you be sure it is accurate? Lawyers are familiar with how to accurately calculate past and future damages, so you don’t risk leaving unclaimed compensation behind.
- Feel better: Overall, leaving your car accident claim on the desk of a professional attorney will just make you feel better. You can focus on your family, work, and rest while leaving all the complicated parts of your case up to your lawyer.
