Common Causes of Car Accidents

The most common cause of car accidents in Milford and the surrounding areas is negligence. When motorists are careless, distracted, or inexperienced, they are far more likely to cause a collision.

The most common ways driver manifests itself in auto accidents are:

  • Auto defects: If a vehicle is designed, constructed, or maintained poorly, mechanical defects can lead to serious accidents leaving the manufacturer or a similar party at fault.
  • Distracted driving: Texting and driving, eating behind the wheel, daydreaming, and other distractions are among the leading causes of fatal car accidents throughout the United States.
  • Driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol: Getting behind the wheel after drinking or doing drugs is never a good idea.
  • Poor infrastructure: When an accident is caused due to poor road design or maintenance, the city organization responsible can be held liable for your injuries.
  • Reckless driving: Speeding, tailgating, ignoring traffic signs and signals, and other forms of reckless driving lead to injury and death every day in the U.S.

What You Should Do After a Car Accident

The following steps can help you directly after an accident, and they may also help protect your injury claim:

  • Call 911 or visit a doctor as soon as possible. Car crash injuries are often internal and can take time to manifest, so the best way to protect your health is to get at least get a check up to ensure you don’t have brain damage or another serious injury. Plus, having medical records on file is vitally important to your injury case, even if you believe your injuries are minor.
  • Contact the police. They will file a police report which will contain unbiased information about how the crash happened. The police will give you a copy of the report (or a number) and can also asset you with exchanging insurance and contact information with any other involved parties.
  • Document the crash scene by taking pictures from all angles of the location of the accident, any vehicles involved, property damage, tire skid marks, bodily injury, and anything else you believe may be relevant.
  • Keep copies of all documentation related to the wreck—such as medical bills, car repair receipts, and police reports—when possible. This information will also help you strengthen your claim.
  • Contact a local car crash law firm that can help you file your accident claim and deal with the insurance companies. Working with an experienced lawyer is generally the best way to get the compensation that you deserve.
