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
  • Defective brakes and auto parts

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
