The Different Factors Most Commonly Involved in Car Accidents

For all practical purposes, most motor vehicle accidents are the result of negligence. Negligence can take many forms when it comes to a car wreck:

  • Distracted driving—It may be a smartphone, tablet and other handheld device, or a variety of other things that cause drivers to take their eyes off the road. Other forms of distracted driving include grooming or eating while driving, turning up the stereo, talking to passengers (such as children), or focusing on roadside attractions.
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol—Any mind-altering substance can alter a driver’s perception and reactions on the road
  • Traffic violations—Driving over the speed limit, making illegal turns or lane changes, failing to use appropriate caution
  • Aggressive driving—This includes tailgating, cutting corners, cutting off other motorists or rolling through stop signs or signals
  • Weather conditions—Drivers often fail to change their driving habits in rain, snow, ice or sleet
  • Lack of rest/driver fatigue—Lack of rest can dull a driver’s reflexes and response time, causing unnecessary accidents

What Are the Most Important Steps to Take after a Car Accident?

Any time that you have been in an automobile accident, your immediate concern should be your health. If you have suffered any bump, blow or other injury to your head, neck or spinal cord, stay where you are until emergency personnel arrive, provided you can do so safely. If you don’t think you can move under your own power, don’t try to do so. This isn’t the time to be brave or strong, or to shake off your injuries. Defer to the expertise of emergency medical personnel and let them decide whether it’s in your best interests to travel to the hospital by ambulance.

Even if you can walk away from the accident, go get comprehensive medical attention as soon as you can, whether it’s in a hospital emergency room, at an urgent care facility or from your primary care physician. The sooner you get treatment, the less risk that your injuries will worsen or that you’ll be in some other type of accident, which can significantly complicate any efforts to recover compensation for your injuries. When you’re getting treated, make certain you tell doctors and nurses about all of your injuries (not just the obvious ones) and ask them to document everything in writing.

If possible, gather contact information from other parties to the accident, as well as any witnesses. This can be tremendously helpful when your attorney investigates your case. In addition, take pictures of everything that seems relevant, from the damage to your vehicle to your injuries, the roadway conditions and the weather.

What Types of Losses Are Typically Covered in a Car Accident Claim?

After a motor vehicle crash, you have the right to pursue full and fair compensation for all your losses, including:

  • Any lost wages or income, including bonuses, commissions and benefits
  • Loss of companionship or consortium—the ability to have close and intimate contact with loved ones because of your injuries
  • Loss of enjoyment of life—the ability to do those things that gave you joy or meaning because of your injuries, or the inability to do the ordinary things of daily life
  • Physical and mental pain and suffering resulting from the accident
  • All medical bills not paid for or covered by insurance
  • Any property damage or loss resulting from the crash
