Car Accidents

Accidents don’t “just happen,” they have a cause. That cause may be the negligence of a driver other than yourself.

The large number of vehicles on the road make car accidents almost inevitable when these vehicles are handled without care. The most common type of personal injury cases result from car accidents that can be caused by many different factors. 

We depend on our fellow drivers to operate their vehicles safely and attentively. We trust that they are obeying traffic laws and that they are fully insured and are properly maintaining their vehicles.  We all insist that they are not driving impaired, whether from the influence of alcohol, drugs, drowsiness, or distractions like cell phones and radios.  All drivers are expected to be responsible and uphold these obligations.  Unfortunately, that is not always the case. 

The police officers handling an accident scene have a very difficult job. Their priorty may be to assist those involved, clear a busy roadway, or coordinate with Emerency Services to ensure proper medical attention is received. They may not have the resources to figure out who is at fault. An officer’s car accident report may not be the final word on the case.
