What Will Our Lawyers Investigate?
To have a valid car accident claim, you will need evidence that shows you were owed a duty of care, the other party failed to meet that duty of care, they acted negligently and caused an accident, and you were injured in that accident. An El Paso, TX car accident lawyer will launch an investigation to find this evidence and show who was negligent and ultimately responsible for your injuries. When we find out what caused the accident, it can help lead to who was responsible. Let’s go over common causes of car collisions in El Paso:
- Driver Error. If the driver failed to signal, didn’t check their blind spots, or were unfamiliar with the roads, they could have caused an accident. While inexperienced drivers may be more likely to make a mistake, this can happen to any driver.
- Distracted Driving. Some drivers may make negligent decisions like using their phone or multitasking while they’re operating a vehicle. These distractions prevent the driver from looking at the road or staying in full control of their car.
- Reckless Driving. Speeding, following too closely, and driving through red lights or stop signs are all signs of reckless driving. A driver may also get behind the wheel while they’re inebriated, which can severely impair their ability to operate a car.
- Faulty Auto Part. In some cases, the other driver may not be at fault for the accident. If a car has a faulty auto part that causes an accident, then the manufacturing company that made it may be responsible.
After we know what caused your accident, we’ll also examine your injuries and the other losses you sustained. Serious car accident injuries can include:
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Broken Bones
- Loss of Limb
The severity of your accident can relate to the extent of your injuries and the level of care you’ll need. We’ll continue to gather evidence that will show the full scope of your injuries and damages.
