THE CAUSES OF CAR ACCIDENTS
Car wrecks result from a wide variety of underlying causes. Most often, a car accident is the result of negligence on the part of one or both of the drivers involved in the accident. Perhaps a driver failed to observe a stop sign, traffic light, traffic signal or other laws governing the operation of a vehicle. Nowadays, it is hardly uncommon for motor vehicle accidents to be the result of driver negligence in the form of texting while driving or the use of a cell phone. And, of course, accidents involving drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs or prescription medication occur, often resulting in serious personal injury and property damage.
WHAT YOU SHOULD DO AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT
Before discussing what you should do after a car accident, it is important to understand a few things that you definitely should not do. First, the other party to the accident may attempt to persuade you not to call the police. That’s the wrong decision. It is important to get an official record produced immediately following the accident, and a police report can serve as valuable evidence later on in ligation. Second, the other party’s insurance company or a well-intentioned but misguided family member may attempt to persuade you to settle your claim quickly and not to contact a car accident lawyer.
