  • What Are Some Common Causes of Car Accidents in the US?

    From our experience handling these cases, negligence is usually the most common contributing factor. That said, here’s an overview of common causes of car accidents in the country:

    • Distracted driving
    • Speeding
    • Drunk driving
    • Reckless driving
    • Bad weather conditions
    • Bad road conditions 
    • Defective car parts
  • What Are Some Common Car Accident Injuries?

    Car accident injuries can range from mild to catastrophic, depending on how the accident happened. These include but are not limited to:

  • What Should I Do After a Car Accident?

    The steps you take right after a car accident can make or break your case. While no accident is usually similar to the other, the necessary steps are almost the same all over. Here’s what to do:

    • Immediately call 911 if seriously injured
    • Move to a safe area if possible
    • Exchange insurance information with the other driver  
    • Document the accident scene by taking photos and videos of your injuries, property damage, or any other relevant detail
    • Obtain the contact information of any witnesses at the scene
    • Contact Morgan and Morgan for a free case evaluation

    Remember, no matter what the other party says, do not admit liability for the accident. Also, don’t provide any recorded statement to the insurance company or claim adjuster before consulting an attorney.

  • What Parties Can Be Held Responsible for the Accident?

    Liability can fall on the other driver who may have been negligent, the manufacturer of a vehicle if a defect contributed to the accident, an establishment that overserved alcohol to the drunk driver, a construction company, or even government entities responsible for road maintenance. In cases involving commercial vehicles, the employer could also be held liable.  

  • How Much Compensation Can I Claim?

    It depends on various factors, such as how serious your injuries are, the extent of property damage, whether you lost wages (or your ability to earn wages in the future), and medical expenses incurred. Compensation may also factor in non-economic damages like pain and suffering, emotional distress, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), among other effects of the accident.
