If you’ve been involved in a motor vehicle accident that has caused you to be injured, you should get in touch with a car accident attorney immediately. This is your first step in making sure that your interests are being looked after and that your legal rights are being protected.
The causes of car accidents are many and varied, and responsibility can be vested in a single driver, or in a number of drivers (as in the case of a multi-vehicle pile-up). Speed is a factor in virtually every accident, whether one driver was going too fast or everyone was. You don’t have to have the “hammer down” in order to be a danger to yourself and those around you. A mere five miles over the speed limit can mean the difference between a quick, effective response to danger, and inability to stop quickly enough to avert an accident. If you’ve been injured in a high-speed (or a low-speed) collision, contact a Kirkendall Dwyer LLP car accident attorney.
Aggressive driving is another significant cause of motor vehicle accidents. Sooner or later, you are bound to encounter a belligerent driver, and his or her “road rage” could result in an accident. You may be able to avoid such an occurrence simply by not engaging with the driver or reacting to them. Just let them pass, and change lanes only when you are confident that the danger has passed. If, however, you do fall victim to an aggressive driver, a Kirkendall Dwyer LLP car accident attorney can help you to achieve compensation for injuries that you may incur as the result of an accident.
Drivers who are distracted or under the influence can also cause accidents. Whatever the cause, it is important that you do not suffer financially as a result of another’s actions. If you have been injured, contact a Kirkendall Dwyer LLP car accident attorney at 713-522-3529. The consultation is free, and we are here to help.
