While dealing with the consequences of an accident isn’t easy, it’s important to know you’re not alone. When negligence plays a role in an incident that resulted in injury, the victim has the right to pursue legal action against the at-fault party.

Most drivers have become desensitized to the danger that comes with driving a car on the road with other cars. That desensitization has allowed drivers to believe that multitasking while driving is a completely safe and normal thing to do. In reality, multitasking while driving is distracted driving, which is incredibly dangerous and can easily lead to collisions.

When a distracted driver’s actions cause a wreck that injures you or damages your property, you should feel comfortable taking legal action that holds them accountable. A car accident lawyer from Shrager & Sachs will guide you through the legal claims process and ensure that you feel confident in getting the compensation that you deserve for your injuries.

After a car accident that wasn’t your fault, you shouldn’t be stuck with the costs of hospital bills, medication, and damage repairs. That’s why many victims of car accidents seek to recover damages from the party who was responsible for the collision. A personal injury lawyer helps victims determine what would be a fair settlement and guides them through the legal process so that they can fully understand what’s happening with their car accident claim.

Negligence causes most accidents. When a person doesn’t practice the basic amount of care that they are expected to, or if they fail to act when there is a duty to do so, then they could be considered negligent. When that negligence leads to an accident and a subsequent injury to another person, then a personal injury claim could be filed against the negligent party. Any kind of accident can be caused by negligence, but the most common types are car collisions and slip and falls.
