Carmel Car Accident Lawyer

Carmel Car Accident Lawyer

Car accidents are an unfortunate part of life. Many people survive them and walk away with barely a scratch. Others end up seriously injured and require surgery, rehabilitation and many months or even years of recovery. Sadly, some people die in car crashes, causing unexpected grief for devastated loved ones.

No two car crashes are the same. There are sometimes multiple factors involved in car accidents. Some cause more severe injuries than others. The road and weather conditions may be different.

If you are involved in a car accident, don’t suffer alone. You have someone on your side. The Carmel car accident lawyers at Holland & Holland can help you understand your legal rights.

Causes of Car Accidents

There are dozens of ways in which a car crash can happen. Some of the most common reasons include the following:

  • Distracted driving. This is one of the most common causes of car accidents. In 2015, it claimed 3,477 lives. We all lead busy lives and try to do too much at once. Many people eat, tend to kids, make phone calls, text, read, apply makeup and perform other tasks when they should be focusing on the road.
  • Drinking and driving. Even though there are taxis, Uber and Lyft, many people still try to drive themselves home after a night of partying and drinking. Alcohol impairs judgment and makes driving more difficult, causing fatal accidents.
  • Disobeying traffic laws. Speeding, running stop signs and illegally passing cars can cause accidents.
  • Medical conditions. Many people fall asleep while driving, while others suffer strokes, heart attacks and seizures. While these medical conditions can come about without warning, those who have medical conditions that put them at risk for risky driving should have someone else take the wheel.
  • Weather conditions. Fog, rain, snow and ice can make driving difficult. Visibility is often reduced in these conditions, so drive slow or wait until the weather has cleared up.
  • Animals. While a squirrel or cat in the road won’t do much harm to your car if you hit it, a larger animal such as a deer or a bear can cause serious damage. You could suffer vehicle damage as well as serious injuries. Some motor vehicle occupants even die after hitting such a large animal.
  • Mechanical failure. Sometimes drivers are not at fault for car accidents. Sometimes cars are designed with defects. These defects can cause serious problems unless the manufacturer can discover it early on. If your car has been recalled, make sure that the appropriate repairs are made before driving.
