Injuries Caused by Negligent Drivers
Auto accidents cause serious injuries that may require extensive medical care, rehabilitation, and healing time. Some of the common injuries caused by car accidents include head injuries, neck injuries, blunt force trauma, broken bones, internal bleeding, spinal cord injuries, back injuries, and other serious injuries. If you can establish that the other driver was at fault, you may be able to recover compensation.
A driver may be acting negligently as a result of:
- Excessive speed
- Failure to signal
- Inattentive driving
- Failure to yield right of way
- Illegal turns
- Failing to allow a safe minimum distance
- Defective vehicle
Arizona uses comparative liability for auto accident injuries. This means, that if there was any fault or negligence on your part, your award could be reduced relative to your part in the accident. Our auto accident attorney in Chandler has more than 14 years of experience as a claims adjuster and uses this knowledge, combined with her extensive legal knowledge to maximize recovery for our clients.
What to Do After an Accident
It is common to feel shocked or anxious after a car accident, but there are some steps you should take immediately after an accident. Contact the police to file a report, get the insurance and contact information of others involved in the accident, and any witnesses. Do not suggest that the accident was in any way your fault. Document everything about the accident and take photographs of the vehicle and injuries, if possible. After you have contacted the police and sought medical treatment, you may want to contact a lawyer to help you seek compensation for your injuries.
