Driving Mistakes That Cause Car Accidents

Everyone thinks that they are safe, responsible drivers. Yet thousands of car accidents happen across the country every day, many of them causing severe injuries or fatalities. Part of the problem is that most negligent or reckless drivers do not realize that they are doing anything wrong or dangerous because they are not paying enough attention to their situation. No matter how skilled a driver you might be, there is always a risk that one such negligent motorist could blindside you.

Some of the negligent actions that drivers take all the time include:

  • Speeding: The most common form of intentional reckless driving behavior is speeding. Drivers who are in a hurry or think it is a thrill to break the law often break the speed limit, putting themselves and everyone around them in danger.
  • Texting-and-driving: The most common form of negligent, absent-minded driver behaviors is texting-and-driving. Almost every driver has a smartphone, so almost every driver has a “convenient” way to distract themselves when behind the wheel.
  • Drunk driving: For decades, drunk driving has been a leading cause of preventable injuries and death in the United States. Drivers lose their ability to drive safely after just one drink, but many people still erroneously believe that buzzed driving is fine.

How Serious Are Your Injuries?

We have found that our talents are best used when people are in dire need of counsel and significant financial recovery. Of course, we are also well-versed in the management of car accident claims moderate injuries. If someone has caused you considerable physical, emotional, and financial harm because they drove recklessly or negligently, then we want to be the legal team that helps you seek compensation.

Let us know if you have been diagnosed with any of these serious injuries:

  • Spinal cord damage
  • Lower back injury
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Head injury
  • Bone fractures
  • Whiplash

Many car accident survivors begin to experience the disabling symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), too. Seeing a car of the same color or driving through the same intersection where the accident happened can be enough to trigger a panic attack. If you are experiencing mental distress after being in a crash, then please seek psychiatric attention. A PTSD diagnosis should be included in your claim, which can increase its overall value.

Will Your Car Accident Claim Settle?

Are you worried that your car accident case is going to end up taking you to court, which might seem like more trouble than it is worth? You should know that the majority of valid car accident claims settle before litigation is necessary. Auto insurance companies do not like going to court because it is expensive for them to pay their defense attorneys for their time. If possible, they would much rather settle your claim, but not before some back-and-forth negotiations, which you should leave up to our car accident attorneys in Owensboro.
