Auto Accident Lawyers
An auto accident involves the impact of two or more vehicles or when a motorist crashes into a pedestrian or object. The aftermath of an auto accident can be catastrophic, resulting in severe injuries or even death. Not only do these accidents cause physical harm, but they also have a long-lasting emotional and financial impact on the individuals and families involved.
What's the Leading Cause of Auto Accidents?
According to research by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), driver error and negligence is the primary cause of car collisions. Driver negligence can have severe consequences for the individuals involved in the accident and their families and loved ones. It is crucial for drivers to practice safe driving habits and to always be aware of their surroundings to minimize the risk of accidents.
Examples of negligence include:
- Operating a vehicle with mechanical defects
- Failure to obey traffic lights and other posted guidelines
- Not properly observing pedestrian and vehicle traffic
- Driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or fatigue
- Driving without regard to weather conditions
- Road rage
- Distracted driving (texting or talking on the phone)
If a driver makes a mistake that leads to a car accident, it can be considered negligence, which forms the basis of a car collision claim. If you were involved in an accident caused by the negligent actions of another driver, you may be entitled to seek compensation from the at-fault driver. This compensation can help cover medical bills, property damage, and lost wages.
