Car crashes are among the top three causes of injury or death. They’re also the number one cause of work-related wrongful deaths. Each year over four million car crashes occur in the U.S. and kill thousands of people. Whether small or catastrophic, motor vehicle accidents can be traumatic. After a car accident, you are confused and scared, wondering who is going to pay for vehicle repairs, medical bills, and how you can continue working. The cause of your car accident may not be clear. Did the vehicle malfunction? Was there a road hazard? Was the other driver distracted or irresponsible?
All too often, accidents occur when the driver of another vehicle is not taking the safety of others on the road seriously.
- Drunk Driving
- Failing to Yield
- Ignoring Road Signs
- Traveling at Excessive Speed
- Texting while Driving, Distracted Driving
- Unlawful Turns
There are many steps that must be taken to adequately investigate a motor vehicle accident and to preserve any evidence. Only an experienced trial lawyer will know the often immediate steps that need to be taken to make certain that your legal rights are protected.
If another party is directly or indirectly responsible, or contributes to an accident, that party may be held liable for damages they cause.
