Accidents caused by driver negligence:
It is the responsibility of anyone who operates an automobile to use reasonable care. The failure to use reasonable care may constitute negligence, and the driver of the vehicle responsible for the crash is responsible for the damages and injuries caused. These damages include lost wages, loss of income, medical expenses, pain and suffering, as well as any other injuries caused by the collision.
Our attorneys have experience representing clients involved in crashes caused by:
- Drivers distracted by cell phone use, passenger, radio, or other sources
- Drunk Driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs
- Driver fatigue
- Rear-end collisions
- Speeding/Driving too fast for conditions
- Drivers failing to signal
- Drivers failing to look before changing lanes
- Drivers running stop signs or red lights
Accidents not caused by the driver:
If an accident is caused or made worse by a manufacturing or product defect, such as failed brakes, tires or faulty air bags, you may have a case against the manufacturer, distributer, and/or installer. This type of case in covered under product liability law.
An automobile that was improperly repaired by a mechanic may be the cause of an accident. In this case, the mechanic as well as the mechanic’s employer may be liable.
If an accident occurred because of poorly maintained roads, improper signs, objects left in the road or anything along these lines, government entities may be held liable.
What should I do?
Automobile accidents can result in very serious injuries, and some symptoms resulting from an accident may not appear for months or even years later. It is important that you get examined by a physician as soon as possible after the accident even if you are only in minor pain.
There are millions of auto accidents nationwide each year that result in injury and death. Unfortunately, since there are so many auto accidents every year, insurance companies do everything they can to limit the amount of money that accident victims receive. Do not sign any documents or checks from an insurance company before you speak with an attorney. Our attorneys are committed to helping victims receive full compensation.
If you have been hurt in a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation.
