Having an accident is a highly traumatic experience that can impact a person’s life in many ways. Unfortunately, one of the effects of living in a very fast-paced, demanding society is that people often rush to get where they are going, and try to be in too many places at once. Add to that the many distractions we are now dealing with, with constant phone calls and text messages coming in from our ever-present smartphones, and we’ve got a lot of accidents just waiting to happen.
Right now California has the highest car accident rate in the United States, besides Texas. The rate of fatal accidents in the US is now at 38,000 a year, and the number of accidents that cause injury is at 2 million. This high rate of injury means a lot of people may lose their jobs and their ability to remain able-bodied. That’s why it’s so important to take care behind the wheel and to be a responsible, focused driver.
Why It’s Important to Retain a Lawyer After An Accident
There are may reasons why accidents happen, but most stem from three major factors: Driver negligence (in which the driver is distracted and not paying attention to oncoming cars and pedestrians), Driving impaired due to intoxication from drugs and alcohol, and Product liability, when a car fails mechanically and goes out of control.
A driver who has been in an accident should retain a lawyer immediately to ensure that they are not blamed for the accident. One of the dangers for accident victims is in speaking to an insurance company right after the event. This is a time when a driver may still be in shock over what happened, and if injured, they may be severely traumatized.
Anything that is said to an insurance company may be used against you to blame you for the incident. This could make you liable for the event, which could have severe legal and financial repercussions for you. The wise choice is to avoid taking the call from an insurance company and contact an experienced law firm, like The El Dable Law Firm in Glendale, to handle all communications.
