Negligence Can Play a Role in Auto Accidents and Car Crashes

Traffic experts always warn drivers to always watch out for others on the road. There are a number of ways that operator negligence can play a role in an accident situation. If your incident involves any of these factors, you may have recourse under negligence laws:
  • Dangerous weather or driving conditions
  • Distracted driving
  • Driver fatigue
  • Driving under the influence
  • Failure to stop
  • Failure to yield
  • Improper maintenance of vehicle
  • Inexperienced or unlicensed drivers
  • Road defects
  • Rubbernecking
  • Running red lights
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating

If You are in an Accident, Here are Helpful Tips

Consider the following helpful tips in the event you or a loved one are in an auto accident:
  • Seek medical attention immediately – even if you think you feel fine and want to avoid any medical records surrounding the crash. When you are hurt, having a third party medical perspective can be helpful.
  • Involve the police immediately and file an accident report – this helps when establishing an insurance claim for any type of physical or mechanical damages that may arise.
  • Gather any witness information or evidence – take photos, get names and phone numbers of anyone who claims to see the accident take place.
  • Do not speak with the other driver’s car insurance company or adjusters – you are under no obligation to give any type of recorded statement.
To protect your rights, you may have trauma or other injuries that relate to the accident, but you and your doctor may not see them right away. Having proper documentation in the days, weeks, and months following an accident can help when you need to file a personal injury claim after a vehicle accident.
