Auto, Truck and Motorcycle Accidents

Some of the common factors that can lead to accidents on the road include driving at high speeds, using cell phones for texting or calls, impatience while driving, and feeling tired or exhausted behind the wheel.

Today’s roadways are challenging even for the most alert, conscientious driver.

  • Technological distractions coupled with more cars and cyclists than ever on the roads can be fatal.
  • It is estimated that text messaging and technological distractions account for nearly one of every four serious motor vehicle accidents.
  • Road signs and signage may be inadequate.
  • Bicycle and pedestrian lanes may be poorly marked.
  • Even pulling out of the parking lot from the mall – especially if visibility is compromised – can be dangerous.
  • Defective tires, airbags, and gas tanks have caused severe injury and death.

Insurance Companies and Medical Treatment

The insurance company you believe will cover and help you in the months following an accident may end up at odds with you. What should you do in the case of an accident?

  • Seek medical attention or call for emergency assistance if needed.
  • Try to get the names and contact information of witnesses.
  • If you have a disposable camera in the glove box or a camera on your smartphone and it is safe to do so, take photos of the accident scene.

Gathering documentation can be helpful to your attorney.

You should not give a recorded statement to an insurance company before speaking with an attorney.

Likewise, be aware that signing documents given to you by your insurance company could limit your right to seek legal recourse.

Before you sign, seek the advice of a law firm experienced in representing victims injured in motor vehicle accidents.
