Serious Car Accidents and Negligence Claims
Negligent driving is the most common cause serious car accidents. Some examples of typical negligent driver behavior include:
- Driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs
- Disobeying traffic signs or signals
- Failing to follow other traffic rules, such as ignoring a no-passing zone or failing to yield the right-of-way
- Aggressive driving or “road rage”
- Distracted driving, such as talking or texting on a cell phone
If another driver has committed any of these behaviors and injured you or a loved one as a result, that negligent driver is responsible for your damages.
Serious car accidents can cause severe injuries to drivers, passengers and pedestrians. Common injuries from car accidents include burn injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, internal bleeding and traumatic brain injury. Serious injuries are rarely temporary. Even though an individual may recover a high percentage of normal body function, healthy tissue has been replaced with scar tissue, joints no longer work as smoothly and your body is simply not the same. The aftermath of serious injuries usually renders one temporarily or permanently disabled. It is important that all the impact on a person’s life is evaluated by the appropriate experts and presented to a jury or an insurance company in a clear and convincing manner. Juries and claims adjusters will not pay for injuries or damages that have not been presented. Sometimes subtle injuries grow worse over time and create significant future impairment. The injured person must have an experienced professional on their side to ask the right questions and present direct evidence.
