When to call a car accident lawyer
Even if the accident seems minor at the time, you’ll want to consult with a lawyer. Given the situation, unknown circumstances may present themselves at a later date. Such scenarios may include:
Distracted Driving Distracted driving is a growing problem in the Henderson area. It is amazing what people will attempt to do while driving a motor vehicle. An accident caused by distracted driving happens when the driver is engaged in any activity that takes their attention away from the road, such as:
- Looking after children
- Texting/sending e-mail
- Talking on phone
- Talking to passenger
- Watching videos
- Adjusting radio, AC
- Searching inside car
- Looking outside car
Driving under the Influence DUI is the crime of operating a motor vehicle while impaired by alcohol or drugs. Even if an impaired driver can keep his or her vehicle on the road, the effects of alcohol – impaired judgment and ability to shift focus – will create dangerous situations often leading to car accidents.
Manufacturer Defect When a defect in an automobile or component contributes to car accidents, the manufacturer or distributor of the product may be liable.
Reckless Driving When a driver misjudges or disregards the rules of the road, bad things can happen, including any activity that displays a willful disregard for the safety of others. Extremely high rates of speed or any activity where the driver was aware of the risks and chose to ignore them constitute reckless driving.
Unsafe Road Conditions Road conditions affected by weather, poorly maintained highways, construction zones, and traffic jams can all contribute to driver error.
What to do after a car accident
Insurance companies can be very aggressive in trying to get the victim of a car accident to settle before they have had the chance to seek proper legal advice. Hence, why it is imperative to contact Dunkley Law as soon as possible after your accident to protect your rights.
