Common Causes of Car Accidents
Even the most careful of drivers can find themselves in an accident. Unfortunately, one of the major causes of vehicle accidents is negligence by another driver. When someone fails to pay attention to the road, behaves recklessly, or gets behind the wheel while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, innocent people can be injured or killed.
Other causes of car accidents include:
- Distracted drivers
- Fatigued drivers
- Defective car parts
- Poor road conditions
- Bad weather
What To Do After a Car Accident
After an accident, your first steps should be to seek medical attention and report your accident to law enforcement. You should also collect the personal and vehicle information of any other drivers involved in the accident, as well as the personal information of any witnesses to the accident. If you can, take pictures of the accident scene, any property damage, and your injuries. Document as much information about the accident as possible, and then bring this information with you when you meet with your car accident attorney.
No matter what transpired during the accident, you want to avoid making any statements or saying anything that may give the impression that you are admitting fault or taking the blame for the accident. Because Texas subscribes to a shared or comparative fault system, saying something that implies guilt may muddy the waters and complicate determining legal liability. It may also impact your ability to collect the full compensation you would otherwise be entitled to.
Several parties may be found liable in auto accidents, including:
Is Filing a Lawsuit Necessary After a Car Accident?
As previously mentioned, a car accident's physical, financial, and emotional toll can be significant. Even with insurance, you may struggle to cover your medical expenses, not to mention the other costs associated with your accident. Furthermore, if your injuries are severe to the point that they preclude you from working, your financial future may be uncertain. Filing a car accident injury claim in civil court may be in your best interest and the only way to receive the compensation you are entitled to.
