Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable

Car accidents happen for many reasons, but one thing that the majority of them have in common is the fact that they could–and should–have been prevented. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that 95 percent of all car crashes are caused by some type of human error, meaning that nearly all of them can be attributed to some type of careless, reckless or otherwise negligent behavior on the part of one of the drivers.

When this is the case, the accident victims have a right to demand compensation for the following, and more:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Pain, suffering and emotional distress
  • Property damage

Examples of Negligence in Car Accidents

Drivers can be found to be at fault for causing crashes in a variety of ways. If the police report, witness statements, or even cell phone records obtained through subpoena reveal that the other party was texting while driving, this may serve as evidence of the other driver's negligence. The same is true of evidence that the other driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or that the driver was speeding, driving recklessly, denying the right of way or otherwise violating traffic safety laws.

What Does A Car Accident Lawyer Do?

A car accident lawyer specializes in representing those who have been in motor vehicle accidents. Their major goal is to assist their clients in navigating the complex legal processes and seeking compensation for the damages and injuries experienced during the accident. Car accident lawyers undertake a variety of activities, including legal advice, accident investigation, liability determination, insurance company negotiations, lawsuit filing, legal deadline management, and providing legal knowledge throughout the case.

First, they provide legal consultations in which they examine the facts of the case and advise on the best course of action. They conduct a thorough investigation into the accident, acquiring evidence such as witness accounts, accident scene images, and medical records. Determining liability is critical, and automobile accident lawyers use their legal knowledge to determine who is at fault by identifying careless behaviors such as speeding or distracted driving.

They negotiate with insurance companies on behalf of their clients to ensure fair compensation for medical bills, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering. If discussion fails, they initiate lawsuits and advocate for their clients in court, presenting their case to a judge and jury to ensure that they receive the amount they deserve. Throughout this journey, car accident lawyers keep track of crucial legal timelines and offer expert legal counsel to their clients, ensuring they are equipped to make informed decisions throughout the progression of their case.

In essence, car accident lawyers alleviate the burden on accident victims by handling the legal intricacies, allowing them to focus on recovery while striving to secure the maximum possible compensation for their injuries, property damage, and other related losses.
