What Types of Accidents Are Most Likely to Result in Injuries?
California motorists become involved in car accidents every day. Most drivers, fortunately, walk away from these crashes unscathed. There are some instances in which motorists aren't as lucky, though. They may be left with life-threatening injuries or dead.
While any type of car accident can arguably leave a motorist hurt, ones that occur at high rates of speed, such as on the freeway, or ones that happen at intersections, including T-bone ones are perhaps the most serious. Why? You might ask.
Auto manufacturers generally only manufacture vehicles to withstand a certain amount of force. Some accidents, like the ones described above, may involve far too forceful of an impact for even its onboard features to keep you safe.
Your car's crumple zones, which are intended to become crushed if an accident occurs, can't keep you safe either. One of the most dangerous situations is when the impact extends beyond your vehicle's crumple zones into your car's passenger compartment. That's when you are at the most significant risk for injuries, such as:
Internal organ damage
Spinal cord injuries
Crashes can permeate into the passenger compartment also put motorists at risk of losing their lives.
Which Factors Increase the Potential for an Accident?
Various factors may give way to motor vehicle accidents. Some of the more common contributors to crashes include:
Poor car maintenance
Drunk or drugged driving
Reckless driving, anything that takes a motorist's attention off the road or leads to a less-than-sound vehicle being out on the roadway, increases the chances of an accident occurring.
What Role Does an Attorney Play After a Car Accident?
California subscribes to the at-fault insurance doctrine. This approach allows a motorist injured in a crash to pursue the other driver allegedly engaged in negligence liable for accident-related costs and other damages.
Proving negligence is sometimes straightforward. In other cases, determining liability for a crash is more complex.
Car accident attorneys are well-trained in how to prove liability. Experienced California personal injury lawyers know how to negotiate with insurance adjusters to ensure that their clients receive fair compensation for their losses.
You can have a car accident attorney provide you with a complimentary case evaluation to see if you have a valid personal injury claim. Should a lawyer take on your case, you can reasonably expect not to pay any legal representation costs unless an attorney secures a settlement for you.
