Common Causes of Car Accidents

Car Accident Attorney
Car accidents can be caused by many different reasons, it's possible that multiple factors can cause an auto wreck as well. In the US, the most common cause of traffic accidents is distracted driving. Distracted driving can take many forms. Texting and driving, eating and drinking, talking to others in the vehicle, or messing with your car’s entertainment system are ALL considered distracted driving. 

Driving under the influence is another major cause of car crashes. Impaired driving can also take many forms; drunk driving or drug-impaired driving is illegal in the US. Driving impaired puts you and everyone else on the road at risk, and also hinders your decision making abilities. Avoiding driving under the influence avoids making reckless decisions.

Another leading cause of accidents in the US is speeding. Driving at excessive speeds limits your control over the vehicle, leading to a potential collision with another driver. In dangerous weather, it is crucial you judge your speed carefully. Driving at the speed limit may even be a poor choice when road conditions impair vision. 

Common Types of Car Collisions

Car wrecks can occur in many different ways, some potentially being more serious than others. Regardless, car accidents can be avoided if you practice safe driving habits. Still, the NHTSA estimates that 38,680 people died in a car crash in the US during 2020. 

Car crashes can occur at any time, oftentimes when you least expect it. Common types of auto accidents we handle are as follows:
  • Rear-end traffic collisions
  • Head-on car crashes
  • T-bone car wrecks
We want you to ensure safe habits when driving. Make sure to contact our experienced legal team if you are involved in a Colorado, Nebraska, Oregon, Washington, or Wyoming car wreck.

Frequently Asked Questions

While every accident is different, following the steps below can help you prepare yourself for a successful car accident lawsuit:
  • Check yourself and your passengers for injury. Call 911 immediately if anyone is hurt.
  • Call the police and wait for them to arrive, even if you do not believe that you have been injured. A police report can corroborate your story and provide you with key evidence.
  • Exchange information with the other driver(s), but do not admit fault.
  • Take photos of the vehicles involved in the accident. If possible, take the photos from different angles and include debris, road conditions, and anything else that could be used as evidence in your case.
  • If possible, move your vehicle out of traffic. If your vehicle is not drivable, wait in a safe place for police to arrive.
  • Contact your insurance company. Again, do not admit fault. You can provide additional information at a later time.
  • Seek medical attention, even if you do not feel injured after the accident. Adrenaline can mask pain and other symptoms, and in some cases, symptoms may take days or weeks to develop. Document and seek medical attention for any symptoms that do develop.
  • Contact a car accident attorney. The sooner you seek expert representation, the sooner you can begin your recovery.
Many car accident victims face high medical bills, lost wages, car repairs, and other economic damages following an accident. It is no surprise that many cannot afford the cost of crash scene reconstructions, visits to medical specialists, and other investigative services on top of the costs incurred by the accident.

The cost of pursuing justice and compensation should not deter you from speaking with an attorney at Metier Law Firm following an accident.

At Metier Law Firm, we understand that car accident victims face unique physical, emotional, and monetary challenges in the aftermath of a crash. You and your loved ones are going through a difficult time, and you should not have to worry about retainer fees or legal costs in addition to everything else you are experiencing. Our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis and focus on winning your case before handling any of the financial aspects of your case.

You, your family, and your recovery always come first.
The right representation can make the difference between a successful case and recovering only a fraction of what you need to recover.

Start by looking for an attorney who has experience with cases like yours. In many cases, car accidents have serious repercussions such as traumatic brain injuries, loss of limbs, spinal cord injuries, and other outcomes that require medical knowledge in addition to knowledge of the relevant laws and regulations. The best car accident attorneys will know how to determine the care required for short- and long-term recovery and fight tirelessly to secure the compensation you need to access it.

You should also choose an attorney who backs up their claims with results. Ask about outcomes in cases similar to yours, and look at the firm’s reputation as a whole. How much have they recovered for past clients? What do their clients have to say about working with the firm?

At Metier Law Firm, we have more than 30 years of experience handling car accident cases and will answer any questions you have about working with us.
If you are unable to work due to injuries you sustained in an accident, you may be eligible to pursue reimbursement for the costs of your medical care in addition to the economic losses you have suffered.

However, it is unlikely that your costs will be reimbursed at the time the expenses are incurred, which is why it is important to contact a car accident attorney as soon as possible. The sooner you start your case, the sooner you can pursue a settlement.

At Metier Law Firm, ensuring that you can obtain the care you need is our top priority. Before your case is settled, we can help you determine whether your car insurance or health insurance can cover the initial costs as we work toward a settlement. Your attorney will discuss all of your options with you as the case progresses.
The damages for which you can pursue compensation can be broken into two main categories:
  • Economic damages: The cost of past and future medical care, the cost of rehabilitation, lost earning capacity, and other tangible damages that can be quantified.
  • Non-economic damages: Injuries sustained in the accident, pain and suffering, impairment, disfigurement, emotional distress, and other losses that cannot be as easily quantified.
Your attorney will help you determine which damages you can pursue following your accident.
Subrogation is the process by which your insurance company recovers the costs incurred by another insurance company’s insured (in most cases, the at-fault party). Your health insurance company may have covered the cost of the medical care required immediately after your accident. Once you have received your car accident settlement, the insurance company may make a claim on your settlement in order to reimburse their expenses. The attorneys at Metier Law Firm can help you determine whether your case will be affected by subrogation and what your options are.
In many cases, the other party’s insurance company will contact you immediately after the accident asking for a statement. They may come across as friendly or well-intentioned, but their ultimate goal is to obtain a statement that will ultimately hurt your case and allow them to give you the lowest settlement they can.

If the other party’s insurance company contacts you, tell them that you would like to speak with your attorney before providing them with a statement at a later date. Then, contact your attorney to discuss your next steps.
