What are causes of Fort Worth car crashes?
Although car wrecks happen for myriad reasons, the majority occur due to driver negligence. Our attorneys see crashes caused by:
Speeding. One of the leading causes of car wrecks, speeding reduces the time a driver has to brake in unexpected traffic conditions. Speeding also leads to high-impact collisions, which increases the chance of severe or fatal injury.
Driver inattention. Distracted driving, driving and texting – whatever you call it, it’s dangerous to everyone on the road. When a driver takes their eyes and mind off the task of driving for even a second, they can cause serious accidents and collisions.
Failure to yield. Many car crashes occur when a motorist fails to yield while turning left or entering a roadway. Misjudging or ignoring oncoming vehicles can lead to serious broadside or T-bone crashes.
Aggressive driving. Drivers prone to “road rage” and aggressive driving behave recklessly on the road, putting others in danger. These behaviors can include tailgating, brake-checking, changing lanes, and blinking headlights at other drivers. Unpredictable drivers cause accidents.
Driving under the influence. Drunk and drugged driving is not only a danger to the general public; it is also against the law. Whether a driver is under the influence of alcohol, illegal narcotics, or prescription drugs, nobody should be behind the wheel if they are in any way incapacitated.
Our Fort Worth car wreck lawyers get to the bottom of how your accident occurred and ensure the right party (or parties) are held responsible for your injuries and losses.
What should I do after a car accident to protect my case?
After a car wreck, it is crucial you take several steps to protect yourself as well as your potential claim. Preserving paperwork and evidence of your injuries is one of the most valuable ways you can help your attorney prove your case. Keep the following in mind after a Fort Worth car crash.
Call 911 and move your car to safety. Authorities will secure the accident scene, call emergency medical personnel, and take a formal report. If you can do so safely and without causing further injuries, move your vehicle out of the road to the shoulder or side, according to Texas law.
Provide a statement to police. Do not argue about fault, but give the facts and details that you remember. Don’t engage in any discussion about fault or the accident with the other driver; you never know what words may be used against you later.
Gather as much evidence as you can. If you’re able, take photos of the accident scene – including damage to the vehicles, the area the accident occurred, any skid marks or property damage, and your injuries. Ensure you get a copy of the police report, as well as the contact information of the other driver(s) and any witnesses on the scene.
Seek medical attention immediately. Even if you don’t think you have suffered serious injuries, see a medical professional as soon as you can for an evaluation. Some injuries, like brain and internal trauma, may not show up for a day or two and can worsen without immediate diagnosis.
Consult with a Fort Worth car wreck attorney. Experienced attorneys can work with you to discuss the strength of your potential case, possible liable parties, and the extent of your injuries. At Slack Davis Sanger, we understand how to handle insurance companies, opposing counsel, and how to secure the compensation to which you’re entitled.
