Car Accident Lawyers
According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, an organization that gathers injury statistics, in 2015 alone, there were approximately 36,000 deaths caused by motor vehicle accidents in the United States. Aside from deaths, statistics demonstrate that motor vehicle accidents cause over 2,000,000 injuries per year in the United States. Accidents, unfortunately, are an inevitable aspect of our society, but what is most disturbing is the fact that many accidents could be avoided simply with the exercise of reasonable care.
Common Causes of Car Accidents
Car accidents can be caused by many factors, including defective vehicles, the negligence or distraction of other drivers, and unsafe roadways. In order to determine whether another driver or entity is negligent, you must be able to prove that they failed to act as a reasonably prudent person should have acted under similar circumstances. Some examples of negligence that may cause car accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs
- Drunk driving
- Exhaustion and fatigue
- Impaired vision
- Improper turning
- Mechanical failure
- Reckless driving
- Road Rage
- Roadway deficiencies
- Running through red or yellow lights
- Running through a stop sign
- Street Racing
- Texting while driving
- Talking on a cell phone while driving
- Vehicle design defects
If you suffered injuries from an accident that was caused in whole or in part by the negligence or reckless behavior of another driver, public entity, or car manufacturer, then you may be entitled to recover damages. In addition, if more than one person caused the accident, then you may be able to recover damages from several sources. It is important to identify each responsible party to ensure that you receive the full value of your claim.
Sadly, reckless driving can result in catastrophic injuries and wrongful death, which all too often robs a family of someone they love and the financial support that they need.
