Common Causes of Car Accidents
There are a number of factors that can contribute to an individual becoming
distracted while driving, thus leading to a car accident and injuries.
In fact, one of the leading causes of car accidents is driver error. When
an individual tries to do too many things while driving, or becomes easily
distracted, they are not only putting themselves at risk—they are
also threatening the lives of others around them.
Car accidents may be the result of an individual who chooses to drive while:
- Under the influence of alcohol and / or drugs
- Texting or talking on the phone
- Failing to adhere to traffic signals, stops, or speed limits
- Disregarding weather or traffic conditions
In addition to driver error, a car accident can be the result of roads
that are not properly maintained. Weather conditions can also lead to
car accidents, due to slippery roads or impaired visibility. Mechanical
issues such as a poor brake systems or insufficient tires can also cause
car accidents. Whether the accident was caused by the negligence of another
or a poorly maintained road, you can rest-assured that we have the experience
and skills needed to take on even the toughest cases.
We can fight the insurance companies!
Oftentimes, insurance companies will do everything they can to get an injury
victim to settle for an amount of compensation that is far less than what
they deserve. With 35+ years of experience and an in-depth understanding
of personal injury law, we are familiar with the actions to take to prevent
this from happening to our clients.
Our founder is
certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Personal Injury Trial Law. This means that if a case must be taken to
court, we will not hesitate to litigate against an insurance company in
order to protect our client.
We recognize that our clients are already feeling stressed about paying
for medical bills, rehabilitation, auto repair, lost wages, and more.
This is why our firm runs on a contingency fee basis—
clients do not owe us anything unless we are able to help them recover
compensation. Give our Friendswood personal injury firm a call to get started on your
car accident claim.
