Automobile accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injury. Too often are people injured or killed by the negligence of other drivers. Whether the accident involved a car, motorcycle, ATV, tractor-trailer or other commercial vehicle, the unfortunate consequences of a traumatic accident can quickly add up. In addition to the pain and suffering caused by one’s injuries, issues involving medical bills, property damage, and loss of future income and earning capacity may present serious problems. There is no reason to suffer these harms and jeopardize your financial security due to an accident that wasn’t your fault. If you our a loved one have been injured as a result of an car accident, you may be entitled to compensation.
While no one ever intends to cause an accident, safe driving is an essential responsibility of sharing the road with other drivers. Unfortunately, there are many ways that drivers’ abandon this responsibility, including:
- Aggressive driving, such as tailgating or weaving in and out of traffic
- Speeding or driving too fast for conditions
- Disobeying traffic signals, such as running a red light or failing to yield to oncoming traffic
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Distracted driving, including talking on the phone, texting, grooming, eating or drinking, adjusting a map, or searching for music on an iPod or radio.
All of these behaviors put even the safest drivers at risk and may be considered negligent. If you have been the victim of an accident caused by any of these actions, you have ground for a lawsuit. There is no reason to suffer physically or financially because another driver failed to uphold their responsibilities on the road.
