When it Comes to Motor Vehicle Accidents, Negligence Causes Collisions

Few activities of daily living are more dangerous than driving or riding in a motor vehicle. Individuals use roadways every day to get to work, go to school, buy necessities, and take part in family and community activities. Further, our economy relies upon trucking to provide us goods and services, and these trucks operate around the clock. Unfortunately, our endless dependence upon driving leads to human error, and these errors cause motor vehicle collisions—sometimes deadly.

Almost every auto collision is caused by driver negligence. Some of the most common collisions result from distracted driving, aggressive driving, impatience, drowsy or fatigued driving, or driving while impaired. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 94% of collisions are caused by driver error.

It is of the utmost importance to immediately investigate and determine a collision’s cause to hold the at-fault driver responsible for any resulting injuries and damages.

What to “Look Out For” After an Accident

After a collision, insurance companies immediately begin investigating and employing tactics aimed at paying you as little as possible, if anything. This is their company policy and the way they earn profits.

Further, many law firms will promise you anything to get you to retain them, only to then pawn you off to a non-lawyer whose job is to settle your claim as quickly and cheaply as possible—acting in the firm’s best interests and not yours.

Most firms don’t take clients’ claims to court, and the few that do rarely try cases. The endless amount of lawyers hawking services on television, radio, billboards, etc. demonstrates this common approach. This makes a client’s choice of hiring an experienced trial law firm even more important, and this is where we come in.
