Causes of Car Accidents
If you’ve ever been in a car accident, you know that it can have devastating effects on your everyday life, whether you’ve sustained extensive injuries, or you’ve lost a loved one due to the accident.
Car accidents can be the result of many different factors including:
- Texting or talking on a cell phone;
- Other types of distracted driving, such as changing the radio station or reaching for something;
- Speeding and reckless driving;
- Driver fatigue;
- Defective parts or products such as brakes or tires;
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs;
- Not paying attention to the flow of traffic or other potential obstacles;
- Improper road maintenance; and,
- Inclement weather.
In order to successfully establish a claim for any injuries or other damages you’ve sustained as a result of a car accident, you must be able to prove that someone else’s negligence caused the accident. Drivers must use reasonable care in order to avoid injuring other drivers, passengers, pedestrians, or others they encounter on the road. If a driver fails to act reasonably and those actions (or inactions) were the actual cause of your injuries, the driver can be held liable or responsible for those injuries. Not all car accidents occur between vehicles. Some of the most dangerous accidents are those involving pedestrians. Pedestrian accidents are also categorized as personal injuries that may lead to serious injuries or even death. The Aranda Law Firm provides legal assistance to victims of car accidents, from pedestrians to motorists alike.
To prove that someone’s negligence was the cause of the accident and your injuries, you must show that:
- the other individual had a duty to use reasonable care while driving;
- the individual breached, or violated this duty;
- the individual’s actions caused your injuries; and,
- you sustained injuries or other damages.
If you have been injured in a car accident that was caused by another, be sure to call our experienced car accident attorneys at the Aranda Law Firm right away. Our dedicated attorneys will work hard to achieve the best possible results in your case.
Will I Be Reasonably Compensated?
Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico are all considered “fault states.” What this means is that if an individual is found to be at fault for a car accident, they typically are responsible for any damages sustained by others involved in the accident. Car accident damages can include bodily injuries and property damage such as automobile repairs. Payment for these damages is usually made through insurance companies. When seeking damages under a bodily injury claim, you might receive medical expenses, lost wages, and other expenses relating to any permanent injuries. It is also possible to obtain damages for pain and suffering, emotional distress, and lost enjoyment of life.
Retaining a Car Accident Attorney is Crucial
Retaining an accident attorney after you’ve been in a serious car accident can be a difficult decision, especially if you are feeling traumatized and are suffering from painful injuries. However, when you’re facing significant medical expenses, or you can’t go to work because of your injuries, or if you are looking at a long road to recovery, you should consult with an experienced car accident attorney right away. Because car accident cases can be complex, and liability can be difficult to prove, especially when multiple defendants may be involved, it is important that you consider hiring a dedicated and skilled car accident attorney.
