If you find yourself injured in a car accident and you think the other driver or some other party may have been to blame, it is crucial that you act quickly to determine whether or not you have grounds for a personal injury case.
Automotive accidents can be extremely damaging and may lead to broken bones, serious lacerations, head wounds, or worse. Any type of crash, whether it results in minor aches and pains or fatalities, can be traumatizing and may leave victims feeling confused and concerned. After any type of damaging car accident, it is important to take immediate action to take care of your health and defend your legal rights.
What Causes Car Crashes?
After an accident takes place, its essential to find out how the crash was caused and who could potentially be at fault. When you work with our firm, our personal injury attorneys can work with you to learn more about the circumstances that surrounded the accident and determine the potential causes of the crash.
Some common causes of car accidents include:
- Drunk driving
- Drowsy driving
- Driver distraction
- Reckless driving
- Poor weather
- Dangerous road conditions
- Vehicle defects
- Construction site dangers
Who Could Be Liable?
Depending on the circumstances of the crash, there are several different parties who could be found liable for the resulting damage. In most cases, a driver is found responsible for the crash, which means they, or their insurance company, will need to pay for the injured party’s damages. However, some car crashes might be caused by defective auto parts or vehicle malfunctions, in which case the manufacturer may be liable. Other potentially liable parties include construction site managers, trucking companies, or property owners.
