If you have been in any type of automobile accident it is important that you contact an attorney immediately.
Even if you believe the accident is minor and there are no injuries, a lawyer can quickly help you navigate the muddy waters of dealing with your insurance company and the insurance company of the at-fault driver.
While minor fender benders have always been a common occurrence, the number of serious auto accidents is on the rise. This may be due to the increased use of handheld devices and cell phones which cause a driver to be distracted. Other common causes of accidents are:
- drug or alcohol use;
- driving too slowly;
- reckless driving;
- failure to obey signs and signals;
- falling asleep at the wheel; or
- aggressive driving.
Sometimes, however, a driver is not at fault and the accident is caused by an auto defect, inadequate road lighting or poor road design or construction.
Regardless, an auto accident can leave you seriously hurt, permanently injured, and financially destitute. The residual effects of an accident can be permanent and life changing. Auto accident victims often suffer serious mental trauma in addition to physical pain.
