Causes of Vehicle Accidents
Need a car accident lawyer in Scottsdale, AZ?
The causes of
car accidents can be numerous, but there is always one common theme. There is always
someone at fault, whether that is another driver, auto part manufacturer,
pedestrian or other individual. Car collisions are one of the nation's
top causes of serious personal injuries and fatalities. If you have been
in an accident and suffered property damage,
personal injury, or even lost someone to
wrongful death, contact an experienced car accident attorney from our firm. You may be
entitled to financial compensation. Dedicated representation from The
Watkin Law Office can help you win the settlement you deserve.
Common Causes of Vehicle Collision
Oftentimes, the other driver may be the one who is liable, or at fault,
for your crash. This can be due to careless or reckless behavior, including
falling asleep at the wheel, as driving tired can at times be just as
dangerous as driving drunk. Drunk driving or driving under the influence
of drugs is one of the most common reasons for injury on the road. Motorists
may drive aggressively, recklessly swerving in and out of lanes, running
through red lights, or violating right of way. Someone on the road can
lose control of the car for something as simple as eating or
texting while driving, causing him or her to break traffic laws and collide with another vehicle.
A driver might also use the vehicle to commit a form of assault, an illegal
act also known as road rage.
Defective Car Design or Manufacture
Whether or not the other driver is at fault, a car manufacturer may actually
be to blame and responsible for paying damages. Faulty braking systems
or poorly made tires can contribute to serious accidents. Broken airbag
systems or seatbelts can contribute to your injuries, and a defectively
designed car roof can cause significant harm in the case of a rollover
accident. A flawed engine or even incompetent car repair could also be
at fault for a collision. There are numerous reasons why you may be able
to file an auto product liability claim against the designer, manufacturer,
and/or car dealer. A knowledgeable car accident attorney from our firm
can investigate your case to determine if a defective vehicle or auto
part was the source of your injuries.
Highways can sometimes be poorly designed, or involve blind turns and extremely
sharp bends. Perhaps the road was not properly maintained, leaving missing
traffic signs or a malfunctioning traffic light. While seemingly minor,
missteps on the part of the city could easily result in terrifying accidents.
Horrible weather can make the road hazardous and if the proper maintenance
crews are not called to clean up the streets, there is a great potential

There may be additional reasons for your particular accident, but these
are some of the main sources. No matter how innocent or malicious the
cause, if another driver's negligence is behind your accident, then
you may be owed sufficient compensation. A skilled lawyer can help prove
which parties are at fault for your injuries or wrongful death. By working
together, we can fight for you to win the compensation you fully deserve,
helping you through this difficult time. You should not have to face the
growing pile of medical bills and fees for car repairs on your own. A
settlement or even an award in a lawsuit should cover your bills and lost
wages. If you have lost someone in a Scottsdale auto accident due to another's
negligence, then you may be owed coverage for emotional suffering, any
medical bills, perhaps their lost wages, and even burial and funeral costs.
