In regards to auto accidents, it is important to determine who is at fault for causing an auto accident. Fault for an accident is proven by showing who acted negligently in causing the accident. Negligence is generally defined as the failure of an individual to use reasonable care. In the context of an auto accident, negligence can be proved in many ways, which can include:
- Careless driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
- Reckless driving
- Texting while driving
- Rear ending another driver /following too closely
- Failure to obey traffic signals or signs
- Distracted driving
Though relatively common in the world of personal injury, auto accidents can be difficult cases to resolve. For one, many individuals are ill equipped to handle the presentation of their claim to the auto insurance carriers. Many of these cases involve complex issues or insurance, evidentiary, and procedural law which consumers do not understand. Unfortunately, the laws are designed so that these claims are made difficult for consumers to navigate. The general goal of such legislation is to satisfy one interest: to save insurance companies money. Often times in handling such claims you will find that you are dealing with unreasonable claims adjusters and complex processes which are too difficult to understand. You will need and attorney to protect your interests. We refuse to represent any insurance companies.
