Common causes of a car accident
There is no way to categorize every potential factor in a car crash. They can occur due to anything from operator error to poor road maintenance. However, understanding the most common factors could help your car accident attorney better represent your interests at trial. Some examples include:
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Fatigued driving
- Running a red light
- Failing to yield
- Poor road design
- Poor road maintenance
- Defective car parts
These are only a few of the potential causes. In fact, many cases occur due to a combination of more than one of these.
What to do after an accident
The steps you take following a collision can have an enormous impact on your injury claim. Without taking care to avoid mistakes, your otherwise-strong claim could suddenly become in jeopardy. Your first step following a crash should be to ensure your medical needs are met. This serves more than one important purpose.
First, your health should always be your top priority. Failing to obtain the necessary medical treatment could hurt you, as well as your injury claim. If a doctor does not document your injuries, your lawyer could struggle to prove the amount of damages you are owed.
Once your medical condition is stabilized, you should contact an attorney. You are entitled to one throughout the process, and they can serve as your advocate from day one. This is valuable, as they can not only deal with the other driver’s insurance company but your own carrier as well.
