Common Injuries Following Car Accidents

Injuries from car accidents can include:

Some car accident victims require hospitalization and rehabilitation before returning to work and a prior lifestyle. Others with severe injuries may face a permanent disability or disfigurement, while others may not survive their injuries. Car accident victims or their families should contact a Lafayette personal injury attorney for legal assistance and guidance as to the steps to take following a car accident with injuries. Doran & Cawthorne, P.L.L.C. offers legal representation to victims of car accidents and they help the victims receive compensation for their injuries and suffering.

Causes of Car Accidents

Many factors can contribute to car accidents, some of the top causes are:

  1. Driver Distraction
  2. Driver Fatigue
  3. Poor Visibility
  4. Bad Road Conditions
  5. Traffic Violations
  6. Speeding
  7. Drug Or Alcohol Use
  8. Tire Blowout
  9. Mechanical Failure

Distracted drivers, texting while driving or talking on cell phones, cause many accidents. Due to this, laws and regulations have been prompted for mobile device use with the intention of cutting down on those types of accidents. Negligent, reckless or careless drivers who cause accidents may be liable to the injured victims for damages in the form of lost earnings, property damage, medical costs, and pain and suffering. Clear negligence of a drunken driver who causes an accident with injuries or deaths also involves the additional element of criminal DUI charges and the potential to seek punitive damages on top of other damages.

Most states require motor vehicle owners to have insurance to cover the medical and property damage costs of car accidents. It is important to have legal representation when dealing with an insurance company following a car accident. Insurance companies often attempt to settle quickly for as little as possible. An insurance settlement may require the accident victim to give up rights to pursue further compensation beyond the settlement figure. To ensure the protection of rights to compensation, speak with Mr. Doran before settling an insurance claim. Make an appointment today for a consultation with a qualified Lafayette car accident lawyer.
