When there has been a crash or accident and injuries are sustained, someone must be held responsible. Negligence is often to be blamed for car accident injuries, trucking accident, or motorcycle crash. Any one of these types of accidents will require a Phoenix personal injury attorney to defend the case in court. Negligence is defined as “failure to take proper care in doing something”, and this can apply to many other types of personal injury cases as well, such as a slip and fall accident, wrongful death or medical malpractice. If negligence can be proven, the case will be won.
What causes negligence while driving? Many factors can contribute to the moments before an accident happens. Take a look around you while you drive on the freeway and you’ll see many of these in action. In today’s world, cell phones are a big contributing factor in causing negligence on the road. Texting while driving, looking for directions, changing the music, or talking on the phone are all reasons why a driver may be proven negligent and held responsible for the injuries you’ve sustained in a car crash.
Another form of negligence is speeding or reckless driving. If speed is determined as the cause for a crash, the other driver can be held responsible for negligence while driving. Similarly, if a driver is found to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol when the accident occurred, this will almost always be cause for negligence. Moving violations, such as running a red light or a stop sign, making unsafe lane changes, or crossing double yellow lines can also be cause for negligence in the event of a car or motorcycle accident that has caused injuries. If you’ve been in a car or motorcycle crash, call Torgenson Law to schedule a free case evaluation and find out how we can help you win your case.
Accidents can be extremely stressful and scary, but it is in your best interest to stay as calm as possible. You’ll need to take photographic evidence of the scene to provide your lawyers with as they gather information for your case. Move your vehicle out of the way of traffic if possible, take a deep breath, and call 911 immediately if any serious injuries have been sustained.
Under no circumstances should you ever leave the scene of a car accident, no matter who you believe is at fault. Stay at the scene of the car or motorcycle accident, wait for law enforcement to arrive so that you can give your statement of what happened, and begin gathering evidence to use in court. If there have been any serious injuries, call 911 immediately.
Collect the contact information of anyone who was involved in the accident, including bystanders and witnesses. Gather their first and last name, phone number, address, driver's license number, and insurance information. If the police are there, ask for a copy of the police report for your records. All of this information will greatly assist your personal injury lawyer in building a strong case for you.
Fully document all angles of the collision. Imagine yourself as trying to paint a picture of exactly what happened, from start to finish, for someone who was not there. Where were you coming from? Where were the other vehicles that were involved? What kind of damage was done to each vehicle? What kind of injuries were sustained? Where were the witnesses? Gather all of this information and take as many photos as possible.
Even if the crash seemed minor, it is helpful to your case to receive an evaluation by a medical professional. If you wait too long, this can affect the legitimacy of your legal case later on. Waiting too long may even negate your ability to file a claim with your insurance agency. As soon as you have finished exchanging information and collecting evidence, head to the closest hospital for a medical evaluation.
Now that you have done everything on your part, the next step is to hand your case over to the professionals. If you want to guarantee that you receive full and fair compensation for your injuries, you need a personal injury attorney on your side.
