Building Your Reeves County Auto Accident Case
Almost any auto accident is based on negligence. Negligence is defined as the failure to take proper care when acting, in this case driving an automobile. Therefore the bulk of the case is proving how and why the at-fault party was negligent while driving.
Negligence while driving can come in the form of carelessness or inattention, but may also include:
Driving Under the Influence
Not only is driving under the influence a criminal action, but it is the leading cause of auto accidents. When using drugs or alcohol a person’s reaction time and ability to control a motor vehicle, particularly at high speeds are impaired, often leading to accidents.
Texting/Using Technology While Driving
Most of us know by now the dangers of texting while driving, but unfortunately, this has expanded to include other actions such as using social media, GPS systems, texting, taking selfies, and other uses of technology while driving. Many states have instituted specific laws against this behavior due to the number of auto accidents it causes.
Disobeying the speed limit is another frequent cause of auto accidents. Running a red light alone can cause not just one but multiple accidents and lead to severe injuries for many people, not to mention the other dangers of excessive speeding.
Changing Clothes/Applying Cosmetics
One of the most dangerous acts that people commit while behind the wheel of an automobile is to try and change clothes or apply makeup and other products while driving. Even a slight lapse in concentration can result in an accident and these activities take a great deal of focus away from driving.
These are just a few examples of driver negligence that can result in devastating auto accidents. If you are in an accident we will work hard to determine the cause of the accident and prove driver negligence to secure you compensation.
