TOP 7 FACTORS THAT AFFECT CAR Accident CLAIMS

Distracted Driving

According to TeenSafe, 9 of all daily fatal car crashes are related to distracted driving. It’s important to keep an eye out for distracted drivers and stay away from them. Keep an eye out for any drivers looking down at their phones, lane-drifting, or driving at unusually slow or fast speeds.

DUI

If the driver who caused your accident was under the influence while behind the wheel, then he may face serious repercussions for his actions and be liable for any injuries which you suffer.

Speeding

If you were injured by someone who was speeding at the time of your accident, then the driver may be held liable for any injuries his or her speeding caused you. Proving a driver was speeding at the time of an accident can be difficult, but a personal injury attorney can help with this process.

Uninsured Motorist

Although insurance is mandatory when operating a vehicle, some drivers nevertheless choose to drive while uninsured. If you are injured by an uninsured driver, recovering compensation for your injuries can be a difficult process. Your own insurance policy will cover your injuries, and if your treatments are more expensive than the policy limits, then you may have difficulty recovering damages.

Head-on Collision

Head-on collisions can be particularly devastating in terms of injuries and fatalities. Determining the location of each vehicle is crucial in proving fault in a head-on collision; if the other driver drifted into your lane, then you may be able to recover for injuries he or she caused you.

Multiple Vehicle

Many accidents involve more than two vehicles, which can make proving fault a nightmare. If you have been injured in a multi-vehicle accident, an attorney can help you sort out the many factors involved in these accidents and help you win the compensation you deserve.

Single Vehicle

Even if you were the only vehicle involved in your accident, you may still have a case. If road conditions were unsafe, if negligence was shown in a construction zone, or if your accident occurred on property belonging to a private person or entity who may have been negligent or careless with upkeep, you may be able to bring a personal injury claim to recover damages for your injuries.

* While these are not the only types of accidents that a driver can face on the road, they are very common and often result in serious injury.

What Should
YOU Do After an
Accident?

01

Call the police.

Never deal directly with the driver of the other vehicle in your accident, except to make sure that he or she is okay.

 

Whether emergency medical assistance is needed or not, the police should always be called after each accident, and a report should be filed.

Get medical treatment you need directly following your accident.

This can increase your chances of receiving compensation for your injuries in a personal injury lawsuit.
