Causes of Car Accidents

The root cause of most car accidents is negligence. Whether a collision was caused by reckless driving, poor road conditions, or mechanical issues, the source of those elements can often be traced to the carelessness of an individual or group. Our team has handled a variety of car accident cases and can help you determine the cause of your collision, and who is responsible.

Some of the most common causes of car accidents include:

  • Committing traffic violations
  • Reckless driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Road conditions
  • Inclement weather
  • Mechanical issues
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs

Common Car Accident Injuries

Regardless of how you are feeling after a car accident, it is essential to visit a doctor as soon as possible. There are some car accident injuries that are not painful or do not show symptoms immediately, but can get worse if not treated. Visiting a doctor also ensures that there is a record of your injuries if you decide to file a claim.

Car accidents can result in injuries such as:

  • Broken bones
  • Bruising
  • Burns
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Whiplash

Determining Liability for a Car Accident

Our legal team will evaluate the details of your case to determine who is liable for your injuries. In most cases, car accidents are caused by the negligence of drivers. When collisions are caused by external factors such as road conditions or mechanical issues, other liable parties may include vehicle manufacturers, mechanics, and the entities that are responsible for repairing the roads.

What to Do After a Car Accident

There are a few steps to take following a car accident, they include:

  • Step 1: You must seek medical care right away.
  • Step 2: If you are able to do so, you should take pictures of the scene and collect contact information from the other driver and witnesses in the aftermath of a collision. Of course, it can be difficult to collect evidence immediately following a collision. We understand this and will help you recover details about the car accident and build your case.
  • Step 3: You should save all medical documents related to your injuries, keep any other bills and receipts that are relevant, and document your injury progression with photographs.

These pieces of evidence, along with the damage to your vehicle and the input of expert witnesses, can establish liability and lead to you receiving compensation.
