The Important Elements of a Car Accident
It is important to understand the full situation of a car accident: what
caused the accident, what damage and injuries resulted, and who is responsible.
Our personal injury team knows that having all of these facts available
as we prepare to fight for our clients’ entitlements allows us to
build stronger cases and yield better results.
Common causes for car accidents include the following:
- Driving while distracted
- Driving while intoxicated
- Texting while driving

Negligence is perhaps the most important element of an injury claim or
lawsuit. When another person’s careless or reckless actions caused
the accident that led to your injuries, they may be held responsible for
your recovery. However, they may only be legally held accountable if you
are able to prove this negligence in a court of law. Our injury lawyers
know that the key to success in most cases is a matter of clearly presenting
evidence of negligence in the at-fault party.
Negligence is important for all types of car accidents, such as:
- Front-end accidents
- Read-end accidents
- T-bone accidents
