Auto Accidents and Negligence Claims
Serious car accidents can have lasting effects on a person’s health and well-being. In some cases, individuals may face long-term disability and may find that they are unable to work and support themselves and their families. If a driver fails to protect others on the road and causes a serious accident, he or she may be accused of negligence.
Persons who are injured in a serious car accident may be eligible for compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain, suffering, and other damages.

Causes of Negligence Claims
When it comes to car accident cases, a person may be accused of negligence if they:
- Fail to observe posted speed limits, traffic signals, and road signs
- Drive in an aggressive or reckless manner
- Operate a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Drive while distracted by other passengers, electronics, or other items
- Attempt to pass another vehicle when not allowed
- Fail to observe appropriate distance between vehicles
Negligence claims are typically based on determining that the defendant failed to act in a manner consistent with a reasonable person. A person may be accused of negligence if he or she fails to respect the safety of others or protect them from unreasonable harm in an auto accident.
