Car Accident

Whether you are caught in the hustle and bustle of downtown, driving on a quiet residential road, or cruising on the highway, car crashes can happen to anyone, at anytime. Car accidents happen for a variety of reasons and are often caused by the negligence of another driver.

 Accidents can be caused by negligent drivers who:

  • Drive too fast or too slow
  • Drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Drive while distracted
  • Fail to signal when turning
  • Drive without considering weather and traffic conditions
  • Disobey traffic signs or signals

Sometimes car crashes are not caused by other drivers but rather by:

A defective product

In these cases, automobile manufacturers or suppliers may be responsible for injuries caused.

A mechanic who improperly repairs a vehicle

In these cases the mechanic and repair shop may be responsible for the injuries caused.

A host who allows their guest to drive home while intoxicated

A bar or social host may responsible for injuries caused by an intoxicated guest that gets into a car and drives.

Poorly maintained roads and road infrastructure
In these cases, Local and Federal Governments or private companies may be responsible for the injuries caused due to:

  • malfunctioning traffic control signals
  • improper design
  • insufficient maintenance
  • hazardous construction
  • inadequate signage
  • lighting or other highway defect
  • improper striping on the road’s passing lanes
  • a sharp obstruction or problem with the roadway that obstructs drivers’ vision
  • poorly placed trees and utility poles.
