How Negligence Factors Into Motor Vehicle Accidents
Negligence factors in the majority of motor vehicle accidents today. When accidents occur due to negligence, a victim may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. The top causes of motor vehicle accidents today are
- Speeding — according to the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety, speeding is one of the most prevalent causes of car accidents today. Speeding reduces a driver’s reaction time and the control over his or her vehicle.
- Impaired driving — individuals who drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol cause thousands of motor vehicle accidents every year. More than 25 percent of traffic deaths in our state in the past few years have been due to alcohol-related accidents.
- Distracted driving — distracted driving is becoming an ever-increasing problem in California and throughout the United States. Authorities believe that distractions play a role in nearly 80 percent of the accidents on California roads.
Be Wary of Inadequate Insurance Settlements
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, you will probably be dealing with an insurance company and their adjusters. But insurance companies are very profitable businesses and the goal of the adjuster will be to save the company as much money as possible on your settlement.
We have seen time and time again how accident victims do not get the adequate compensation they need from their insurance settlement and end up paying for many of their expenses out of pocket. Before you settle with the insurance company, get the advice of an experienced personal injury lawyer to understand what you may be entitled to in the way of compensation for your injuries.
