An Experienced Car Accident Attorney Can Help Accident Victims Seek Compensation

Types of Car Accidents

The most common types of traffic accidents fall into one of three categories: single-vehicle, multiple-vehicle, and collisions involving commercial vehicles. In single-vehicle accidents, an automobile might hit a stationary object or veer off the road and experience a roll-over. Multiple-vehicle collisions usually consist of two motorists in a head-on, rear-end, or side-impact crash, but sometimes involve a multi-driver pile-up. Assessing liability in these cases can be complicated and requires extensive investigative work. Collisions between cars and commercial trucks can be devastating, often causing fatalities for the car occupants. An experienced personal injury attorney can help car accident victims and their families rebuild their lives with the aid of financial compensation.

Causes of Car Accidents

There are many reasons the driver of a motor vehicle may be found to be at fault (or negligent) in the cause of an accident. Collisions can be caused because a driver is distracted by a cell phone or passenger, or a driver may disregard traffic rules by speeding, running a light, or failing to yield. Motorists do not always take extra caution in inclement weather or they fail to consider that their view can be blocked by a blind spot. Some drivers experience "road rage" and act willfully or lose control of the vehicle. Regardless of the reason, careless or reckless driving can result in tragedy for innocent victims, who have a right to seek appropriate compensation.

Car DUI Accidents

The impact of drug and alcohol use on traffic accidents is well known. Many studies have documented the impaired skills and reaction times of drivers under the influence. A driving under the influence (DUI) conviction for a party in an accident establishes recklessness and liability, and victims can pursue full compensation for pain and suffering, diminished quality of life, and other losses. If your loved one is harmed or killed in an accident caused by an alcohol or drug-impaired driver, the loss can seem particularly senseless.
