Common Car Accident Causes

Another driver’s liability for injuries resulting from an accident depends on whether their conduct fell below the applicable standard of care for similarly situated reasonable drivers.

Among the most common circumstances that lead to car accidents are:

  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Driver fatigue
  • Weather conditions
  • Lighting and visibility
  • Negligent maintenance
  • Defective equipment

Sometimes car accidents do not occur due to driver negligence. Instead, a car accident can result from a defective car part or poor road conditions. In those cases, the at-fault party could be a government agency or car manufacturing company and would be responsible for compensating you for your pain and suffering.

What NOT To Do After An Auto Accident

Since we do not want injured parties to say and do anything that could negatively impact their personal injury settlement, we prepared a list of what NOT to do after a car accident. If you need to file a claim for compensation, don’t hesitate to contact our firm directly.

Things to avoid doing after an accident:

  • Do not drive away from the scene of the accident. You have a legal obligation to see if anyone was injured and if so, seek medical help right away. If you do not stop and call the police, you can face criminal charges, even if the accident was not your fault.
  • Do not fail to call the police. You have a legal duty to contact the police and inform them of the accident. The police can file a police report, which will come in handy during the claims process.
  • Do not admit fault at the accident scene, even if you think the accident was your fault. The accident may not be your fault at all, so you need to let the insurance companies determine fault. If you say, “I’m so sorry, it was all my fault” and it wasn’t your fault, the at-fault driver’s insurance company can use what you said against you to reduce or deny your claim.
  • Do not fail to get the other driver’s information. Be sure to ask for the other driver’s license number, insurance information, phone number, home address, vehicle registration info, and license plate number.
  • Don’t ignore eyewitnesses. If someone witnessed the crash, get their name and number so the insurance company can contact them.
  • Don’t forget about pictures. If you have your cellphone, take pictures and video to document the crash, the weather that day, and the surroundings at the time of the crash. Be sure to take pics of any skid marks and vehicle damage.
  • Don’t fail to seek medical attention. It can take days for the pain of a crash to surface, but you don’t want to wait that long to see a doctor and/or chiropractor. If you wait too long to seek medical treatment, the other side could argue that you “weren’t that hurt” and therefore deserve a lower settlement. Our advice is to see a doctor within 72 hours of the crash, but the sooner the better.

Odds are, most of us will be in at least one car accident, if not multiple accidents in our lifetime. That said, there is a right and a wrong way to act after a car accident. Because, if you make a mistake at a time when you’re not exactly thinking clearly, it could jeopardize the outcome of your personal injury claim. Protect the outcome of your claim, follow these suggestions, and contact an experienced attorney today.
