Defending The Rights Of Auto Accident Victims
Despite advances in safety technology and a growing awareness of the need to avoid risky driving behavior behind the wheel, auto accidents remain one of the primary causes of serious injuries and wrongful death in the United States.
To put it frankly, our highways and roadways are one of the most dangerous and deadliest places we can be, and most of us find ourselves traveling on them every single day. For many car accident victims, the effects that these collisions often have on their lives are extremely painful, not to mention costly and burdensome. Even the less severe injuries that are common in car wrecks and collisions, such as cuts, bruises, concussions, broken bones and whiplash, can require costly medical treatment and cause the victims to suffer significant lost wages and other financial damages. Serious injuries, such as head, neck, TBI, and spinal trauma, can cause permanent life-altering physical disability and a lifetime of pain and suffering.
In light of these and other serious consequences that car accident victims are forced to face, it is often possible for these victims to take legal action against the person responsible for causing the wreck. The personal injury attorney at The Law Offices of Steven M. Williams knows how important and crucial it is for car accident victims to take all legal action that is available to them. Doing so is often the only means for car accident victims to obtain the financial compensation that is imperative to their recovery and financial stability and to prevent victims from having to shoulder the repercussions of an auto accident on their own.
Common Causes Of Car Accidents
It can be extremely hard to recover from the effects of a car accident. Unfortunately, victims of car wrecks are often left facing catastrophic and costly consequences because of the negligent actions of others, such as:
- Driver error
- Texting, talking on the phone or other driver inattention
- Speeding or reckless driving
- Drunk driving
- Pedestrian accidents
- Roadway obstructions
- Car defects
- Stalled vehicles
- Roadway obstructions
- Accidents involving motorcycles
- Road construction or road defects
- Livestock or pets in the roadways
- Driver failure to yield right of way
- Driver failure to signal lane changes or turns
- Driver failure to stop at red lights or stop signs
We believe that no car accident victim should have to pay for the costs of their own injuries caused by the carelessness, inattention and/or negligence of others, and we will fight to ensure that the victims are not the ones to bear the costs of the reckless behavior of another careless or negligent individual.
