Car Accidents and Related Laws
Car accidents can result from any number of negligent driving practices or avoidable events. High speed is a common culprit of avoidable car accidents, and has played a role in approximately 30% of fatal crashes in 2004 according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Speeding is exceptionally dangerous because, among other things, it reduces reaction time, increases the distance travelled after seeing an emergency, increases the severity of the crash, and renders airbags and seatbelts less effective.
Rollover accidents are often a cause of the most severe injuries in car accident cases. Rollovers are often caused by road conditions or the vehicle itself. To prove a road defect was present or that there was a design or manufacturing defect in the automobile, you need an experienced personal injury attorney. In addition, expert investigation is often also needed to accurately determine the cause and theory of the case.
Road rage is a form of reckless driving which also results in a number of preventable car accidents. Reckless driving is when someone deliberately drives unsafely, disregarding safety, while knowing that their driving may cause an accident. A driver could be found reckless if he or she drives in a threatening or harassing manner out of “road rage” and causes a car accident. Road rage is essentially an assault by one motor vehicle against the operator or passenger(s) of another motor vehicle. Criminal liability can arise from such behavior. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration defines aggressive driving as a progression of unlawful driving actions such as speeding, improper or excessive lane changing, failing to signal intent, and improper passing. These type of road rage incidents are highly dangerous and can often lead to accidents.
The collisions can be head-on, T-bone, or rear-enders. They all can have a devastating impact.
Car accidents are one of the most common accidents giving rise to legal claims, but can often be some of the most difficult and complex cases. They require an experienced attorney, with the expertise to analyze the case, address the insurance related issues, hire the appropriate experts, and see it through to a successful conclusion. Haffner Law attorneys combine experience, courtroom skills, a strong work ethic, and compassionate representation to obtain results and recoveries that our clients deserve.
