It's More Than Just A Lawsuit, It's Justice. 

What are three common causes of collisions?

Motor vehicle accidents can take many forms, from rear-end collisions at low speeds to high-speed front-end crashes. In most cases, people never see these crashes coming, even though there may be some signs of trouble up ahead.

Many collisions are caused by distractions, drowsiness and drunken driving. These three D's are among the most common causes of collisions leading to injuries and death. Each one of these actions impairs drivers in some way, making them more prone to causing accidents.

Take for example the number of distractions that drivers face on the roads. Some common individual distractions that can lead to a crash include:

  • Texting and driving
  • Taking a phone call
  • Arguing with passengers
  • Eating behind the wheel

These are just four distractions, but if you think about it, there are dozens more. On top of that, tired drivers may show the same signs of impairment as those who are intoxicated.

What can drivers do to be safer on the roads?

With distractions, drowsiness and drunk driving to blame for many of the crashes on the roads, the best thing people can do is to get enough sleep, put down their devices and avoid drinking before they drive. Taking these three simple steps can save lives and help avoid serious collisions.

What should you do if you're hit by a dangerous driver?

If you're hit, don't be afraid to reach out for support from your attorney. You have a right to file a claim and seek the compensation you need to pay for your medical bills, lost wages and other financial losses.
