What Clients Should Know About Car Accident Litigation By Levine & Slavit PLLC on January 22, 2014

What Clients Should Know About Car Accident LitigationThere are many kinds of misfortunes that can befall a person, particularly on the road. So many people are victims of unfortunate accidents involving motor vehicles, and it's important that the responsible parties of these accidents are held accountable for their actions.

If you or someone that you love has been injured in an auto accident of some kind, our personal injury attorneys can help you receive just compensation for any injuries that have been sustained or losses and hardships that have been experienced.

Different Causes of Car and Auto Accidents

Some of the most common causes of auto accidents include the following:

  • Drunk driving
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Driver fatigue
  • Auto parts malfunctions
  • Dangerous vehicle design
  • Poor road conditions
  • Poor weather conditions

Serious Injuries and Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents can result in serious injuries. Some of these include:

  • Injuries to the neck
  • Injuries to the spine
  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Internal injuries
  • Burn injuries

Severe injuries sustained in an auto accident can lead to lasting disabilities that affect your range of motion. In serious back or neck injuries, this can mean paraplegia or quadriplegia.

Addressing the Negligence of Other Motorists

When an auto accident is caused by fellow motorists, this tends to be due to reckless driving or dangerous driving behaviors. Whether it's speeding, not using turn signals, or driving while intoxicated, these sorts of activities should not be tolerated.

Addressing the Negligence of Auto Manufacturers

Sometimes the makers of a vehicle or an auto part are responsible for an accident occurring. This could mean bad brakes, poorly tested safety restraints, or just a vehicle design that contributes to severe injuries. The makers of the vehicle or the auto part need to be taken to task for endangering consumers.

Addressing the Negligence of Other Parties or Entities

Other companies or groups may also be responsible for an accident occurring. This includes trucking companies whose unsafe policies make their drivers a potential hazard to others, or construction companies whose poor management of traffic may turn a work site into a place that's ripe for an auto accident. Whatever the case may be, having skilled car accident attorneys on your side will help you achieve justice.

Holding At-Fault Parties Responsible

During auto accident litigation, our lawyers will seek out damages to cover material losses, medical bills, lost wages, and other hardships as well as to punish the party that was responsible for the accident occurring. This compensation will help the accident victim or victims with the recovery process.

Fatal Auto Accidents and Seeking Justice for Loved Ones

There are many cases in which a serious vehicle collision results in the death of a loved on. In these tragic cases, our legal team will fight diligently to ensure that all damages sought will help address the hardships associated with the death of the loved one. While this compensation will not be able to bring the loved one back, it can assist in the mourning and grieving process. Our team will be here for you and will stand by your side throughout the legal process.
