Auto accidents can happen to anyone
Delaware has approximately 700,000 licensed drivers, 900,000 registered vehicles, with over 10 billion miles put on our collective odometers each year. We like to drive! Unfortunately, we also had more than 26,000 car accidents, resulting in 120 fatalities and 8,500 people injured.
Most of us drive every day, but rarely think an accident will ever happen to us. But even the world’s safest and most cautious driver who follows every rule of the road still can’t control the actions of the other drivers around them. Car crashes take you by surprise, so it’s important to understand the risks and causes.
What – or who – caused your accident?
Determining liability for a car accident isn’t as obvious as it might seem. It’s not like the movies where the at-fault driver is obviously intoxicated or impaired, admits to causing the crash, or you’re lucky enough that there are witnesses everywhere. In some cases there might be a good amount of evidence, but in most situations, your personal injury attorney will need to carry out a significant investigation to strengthen your case.
Investigations can include obtaining all medical records and police reports, reviewing surveillance video, interviewing witnesses, and hiring accident reconstruction experts. Our law firm has access to resources and experts in their fields to help build a successful case.
Based on our experience, following are some of the common causes of car accidents:
- Drunk or drugged driving
- Distracted driving
- Driver fatigue
- Aggressive driving
- Defective auto parts
- Road hazards
- Reckless driving
These are only some of the many possible reasons you could be involved in an accident in Seaford. Your attorney works with you not only to prove the cause of your crash, but also that the other party was negligent and caused you harm. At Silverman, McDonald & Friedman, we know how to uncover that information and evidence to strengthen your case.
Depending on the circumstances of your accident, your injuries could range from moderate to severe. Common injuries resulting from car wrecks and collisions include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Back injuries
- Neck injuries and whiplash
- Spinal injuries
- Bone fractures and breaks
- Leg, knee, and foot injuries
Car accidents are almost always caused by driver error. They can happen at any time of day, in any kind of weather. Some of the more common types of car accidents include broadside collisions, head-on collisions, multi-vehicle crashes, rear-end collisions, sideswipe crashes, collisions with stationary objects, and wrong-way collisions.
