Calling car accidents “accidents” can be misleading, as most do not occur just by chance, but are actually caused by a negligent driver. Negligent driving behaviors include people texting or calling while driving, drunk driving, speeding, ignoring traffic signs, or driving recklessly during poor weather conditions, among other actions. If someone is engaged in one of these behaviors and causes a car accident, they could be held liable if someone is injured or killed. Ramsey Law Group has helped many clients win cases for car accidents where they were injured and the other party was at fault. Drivers operating the road unsafely should be held responsible for the resulting damages.
A car accident is not always as straightforward as it seems, and our attorneys have the experience and knowledge to examine every angle when looking at a case. When determining liability, it may be that the other driver is solely at fault for the accident, but it also could be the case that the car was manufactured poorly and caused the driver to not be able to react properly. Alternatively, if the driver was driving for work, some fault may lay with the employer depending on the situation. Situations involving incorrect signage for streets or construction projects may contribute as well.
Looking at all angles to determine who can be held responsible for a car accident helps us determine our approach with insurance companies and pursue lawsuits on behalf of our clients. Depending on the severity of the injuries and the impact the car accident had on our client’s lifestyle, we tailor our process to maximize our client’s compensation. We work closely with insurance companies to make sure you are getting a fair amount and hold them accountable if they want to deny a claim. We also can pursue a lawsuit against the driver or other liable party if the situation calls for it. Our ultimate goal is to help ensure the well-being of our clients and to do what we can to help them recover after a car accident.
