Ordinary people get into accidents, sometimes to no fault of their own. Whether through negligent actions or actions outside of your control, you are left to pick up the pieces and pay costs and damages, both financial and emotional. Not only that, but the quality of your life may be severely impacted as you may be unable to work and even live like you once used to.

If your accident was caused by the negligence of another party, you are entitled to compensation. If the other party failed to uphold their duty of care, which resulted in the accident and therefore the injuries and damages incurred, you are likely entitled to compesation. Negligence usually arises from: 

  • Distracted driving – driving and partaking in actions that prevent the driver from fully being alert. Such distractions include phone calls and text messages, watching videos, playing games, and browsing websites. 
  • Driving under the influence- driving under the form of alcohol or substances, both legal and illegal. Driving under the influence can effect a person’s judgment, motor control, vision, and reaction time. 
  • Reckless driving and refusing to follow traffic laws- driving above the speed limit and not following the rules of the road can lead to dangerous collisions, rear-end collisions, and other life-threatening accidents. 
  • Defective or improperly maintained vehicles-  driving a car that was not properly maintained means the driver did not ensure that the car was safe to drive. Not replacing worn tires or regularly getting your car serviced can lead to collisions and accidents. 
  • Driver fatigue- driving while tired means you aren’t fully focused and alert on the road. 


Additionally, changes in weather such as snow, ice, rain, and high winds can also increase the risk of accidents. 

It can be difficult to determine negligence in car or truck accidents, which is why you should speak with an attorney. Even if you may be partially responsible for the accident, you can still be entitled to compensation if the other driver was found to be more negligent. 

Not only would you have to consider negligence but you may have to file a claim with insurance companies. When you are injured and have to deal with an insurance company or private party for your claim, consult with a lawyer who has experience working with personal injury cases.

Acquiring proper legal assistance makes a huge difference in these cases since a personal injury lawyer can help you get the information and answers you need from the insurer about your claim. Insurance companies sometimes take forever to pay claimants after the accident and want to pay as little as possible.

Additionally, there are severe legal issues and specific laws that should be considered which can further complicate personal injury claims.

A qualified attorney can potentially speed up the process ensuring you get the compensation you deserve.

Such an attorney will also fight on your behalf to ensure that the claim has been settled to your greatest benefit. Also, if the claim has to go to court, you should have proper legal representation without worrying about finances as the lawyer would only be paid if you win the case.
