You take your personal safety seriously, but unfortunately, others don’t always do the same. A repetitive commute, a spontaneous drive to meet up with a friend or a quick run to the grocery store can turn into a nightmare quickly. Suddenly, your world is turned upside down and your life is changed after someone crashes into your car.
The Texas Department of Transportation estimates that drivers traveled over 275.5-billion miles in 2017. Of those miles traveled, 14,299 serious crashes occurred injuring 17,546 people. Texas regularly finds itself in the top 5 states for vehicular crashes. These are terrifying statistics that would lead anyone to reconsider their responsibility on the road.
Accidents happen, but so does reckless road behavior, and we want to help you to determine if that has played a role in your car accident.
At the time of an accident, there is a quick attempt to determine who is at fault. The drivers and authorities will try to place accountability on one party or another in order to get everyone on their way as fast as possible. However, liability might be a factor into your accident.
An example of this is if the driver who hit you was working in a company vehicle and not paying attention. Another example, if the car that hit you has a manufacturing problem that leads to the crash resulting in your injuries. If any of these factors are the case, it is essential that accident attorneys in Austin investigate your claim as soon as possible.
Another issue to acknowledge, drivers who participate in negligent behavior behind the wheel. You have likely seen this kind of conduct hundreds of times on your way from point A to point B. For instance, a driver whizzes by you while texting, a woman veers into your lane putting on her makeup, you swerve abruptly to avoid a sleepy driver; the examples go on and on.
Negligence is an important factor in auto accidents, and when those actions result in significant injuries, you have legal rights. When you have a team of legal minds investigating your accident claim, you can rest more comfortably knowing you do not have to manage the legal or insurance systems alone.
