Car Accident Claims
What are Common Causes of Car Crashes?
Every time we hit the road, we embark on a journey that demands caution, responsibility, and awareness. Despite advancements in vehicle safety, car crashes remain an unfortunate reality, often resulting from a variety of factors. At Morgan & Morgan, we believe knowledge is a crucial tool for prevention. Here's an insight into some of the leading causes of car crashes:
Distracted Driving: In an era dominated by technology, distracted driving has become a pervasive issue. Whether it's texting, talking on the phone, or engaging with in-car entertainment systems, diverted attention can lead to devastating consequences.
Speeding: Exceeding speed limits poses a significant risk on the road. Speeding reduces reaction time and increases the severity of accidents, making it a leading contributor to collisions.
Impaired Driving: Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs remains a major cause of accidents. Impaired judgment and coordination significantly elevate the likelihood of crashes with severe outcomes.
Reckless Driving: Aggressive and reckless driving behaviors, such as tailgating, weaving between lanes, and disregarding traffic signals, create hazardous conditions and contribute to a substantial number of accidents.
Weather Conditions: Adverse weather, from rain and snow to fog and ice, amplifies the challenges of driving. Reduced visibility and slippery roads make accidents more probable during inclement weather.
Running Red Lights and Stop Signs: Failing to obey traffic signals and signs jeopardizes the safety of everyone on the road. Intersection-related collisions are often the result of drivers disregarding these crucial directives.
Driver Fatigue: Tired and drowsy driving impairs cognitive functions and reaction times. Fatigue-related accidents are more prevalent than one might think, especially during long-distance travel.
Understanding these leading causes empowers individuals to make informed decisions behind the wheel. Sometimes, however, other negligent drivers can introduce more risks on the road, regardless of how carefully you drive. If you're involved in a car wreck, Morgan & Morgan's dedicated team is here to help you fight for the justice and compensation you deserve.
What to Do if Involved in an Automobile Accident
If you are involved in an accident, there are steps you can take to help yourself and your subsequent personal injury case, if necessary. At the scene of the accident, first and foremost you should contact authorities to clear the road and tend to any medical concerns or injuries you have. You will want to report the accident to have an official record of the events. At the time of the accident, gather any other evidence, such as witness names and contact information, as well as photos of the damage. This can all be useful if you have to file a car accident claim and to determine fault for the accident.
The next action you should take is to contact a car accident lawyer. The best car accident attorney can help you to navigate the complicated legal process and fight for compensation you need and deserve. At Morgan & Morgan, we stand proudly as the nation's largest personal injury law firm and have victims injured in car accidents for decades. Our experienced auto accident lawyers understand the challenges of injuries in a car accident case—and the additional challenges of dealing with car insurance to get help when you need it. A qualified car accident lawyer can help you get the money you need and deserve to move forward after any kind of car accident injury claim, from common car crashes to fatal car wrecks.
How Is Morgan & Morgan Different?
At Morgan & Morgan, we have been fighting for over 35 years for our clients who are victims of car accidents to get them the compensation and justice they are owed. After all, insurance companies tend to seek to minimize compensation for car accidents and car accident injuries. What may seem like a fair sum might fail to cover long-term medical costs, lost wages from missed work due to a car wreck, or delayed injuries or damages that weren’t accounted for in the original settlement amount. Fortunately, we’re experts at navigating the often confusing legal and insurance process for car accidents and personal injury claims, and we fight for your full and fair compensation—while other law firms may take the easy route and settle for less. And with offices in every state across the country, we have a car accident lawyer near you.
Is Hiring a Car Accident Lawyer Necessary?
In a motor vehicle accident, the accident is just the beginning of your problems. Navigating an insurance claim alone can be tricky, especially if the fault of the car accident is disputed. In addition, insurance companies may try to settle your claim for less than it is actually worth. Hiring an attorney after a car accident can put someone in your corner who knows your state’s laws and the common tricks insurance companies may try to play.
If you get involved in a car accident, the right injury attorney can help make a significant difference in how you recover from your physical, emotional, and financial stressors. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may require thorough and expensive medical care, which shouldn't be your burden to bear for a car wreck that wasn't your fault. Additionally, the cause of the car accident can come into play. After all, there are many types of car accidents, and deciphering fault and other legal factors may require the work of an experienced attorney.
For instance, many car accident victims may be involved in a commercial truck accident. The severity of the impact can be greater due to the size of the other vehicle, and the fault of the accident may not rest on the driver alone but also on the trucking company for negligence to maintain the truck properly or train their drivers responsibly.
With the help of a Morgan & Morgan auto accident lawyer, experts can be sent to the accident scene to collect evidence and even to recreate the accident to prove the true causes of car accidents for court purposes. Such evidence can help your injury claim and strengthen your case to get the maximum compensation you need.
How Much Does a Morgan & Morgan Car Accident Attorney Charge for a Car Accident Claim?
Morgan & Morgan car accident lawyers operate on a contingency fee basis, which means you only pay if and when we win your case. Our fee would come in the form of a percentage of the settlement or verdict amount we obtain for your car accident case. You can start with a free consultation, and if you hire a Morgan & Morgan personal injury lawyer, we will go straight to work for you for no charge until we obtain you compensation. We understand that a car crash can be life-changing—and even life-threatening—so we get to work while you tend to your most important priority: recovering from your injuries and moving forward with your life.

How Are Car Accident Verdicts and Settlements Calculated?
You may be thinking, "What is my car accident case worth?" Truthfully, there's no simple answer, due to the numerous types of car accident cases. A car accident settlement amount can vary substantially from state to state, depending on the jurisdiction in which the car accident occurred, alongside the facts of the case itself. Variables like hospital bills, car repair bills, and quotes from mechanics are used to determine the cost of a car accident and what in most cases insurance companies will pay.
