Common Causes of Car Accidents in Frederick

Understanding car accident risks is essential to avoiding car crashes. There are risks to both drivers and pedestrians when cars are operated on roads. Knowing about common causes of crashes could prove hugely beneficial for ensuring drivers take greater precautions when behind the wheel. Car accidents vary in severity and cause, but in many cases, they are avoidable. The leading causes of car accidents include:

  • Drunk driving: Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs can impair judgment and lead to dangerous scenarios on the road.
  • Distracted driving: Texting or talking on the phone while driving can lead to serious consequences as it impairs concentration and diverts alertness to your surroundings.
  • Speeding: Too often, drivers attempt to beat the traffic by going over the speed limit. This increases the risk of an accident due. Additionally, the increased momentum from speeding can decrease your ability to react in time.
  • Weather Conditions: Poor weather conditions, like rain and snow, can make visibility more difficult and cause roads to become slick. High speeds and poor road conditions can increase the risk of skidding and losing control of one's vehicle.

Additional factors that can lead to car accidents include mechanical problems or driver fatigue. Driver fatigue is especially dangerous because it impairs a driver's decision-making and reaction time. Mechanical problems can also cause vehicles to malfunction or fail to respond correctly, leading to an increased risk of collision.

Common Car Accident Injuries

Injuries sustained from car accidents vary greatly depending on the severity of the crash. Common types of injuries range from broken bones to whiplash, burns, or lacerations. Even if you feel fine after a car accident, it’s important to be checked by a medical professional, as symptoms of injury can appear several hours after a collision.

Car accident injuries range in severity. Injuries can include:

  • Amputation
  • Brain damage
  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Cervical strain
  • Death
  • Internal injuries
  • Neck, shoulder, or back injury
  • Paralysis
  • Whiplash

Regardless of the injuries sustained in your accident, your case could still qualify for compensation if caused by negligent or reckless driving or behavior. The Frederick auto accident attorneys at Metzger Wickersham can review the details of your case and determine if you are eligible for compensation.

When Should You Get A Lawyer For A Car Accident?

The timing of hiring a vehicle accident attorney can have a big impact on how your case turns out and how much you can get compensated for your losses. Although hiring counsel following an accident is not required, there are a number of situations that strongly imply that working with an adept car accident lawyer in Frederick, MD is necessary.

Firstly, if you've suffered injuries, especially those that are serious or have long-term consequences, consulting with an attorney is crucial. Serious injuries often lead to substantial medical bills, potential future medical care, and loss of income, all of which require expert negotiation to ensure you're adequately compensated.

Second, if there's an issue about who caused the collision or if the insurance company is refusing to pay your claims, an effective auto accident attorney can be of great help. They can guide you through the complicated nature of insurance claims, argue on your behalf, and ensure that your rights are safeguarded.

If you're concerned about the financial consequences of your injury, such as paying medical costs or making up for missed wages, obtaining legal counsel right away can be especially helpful. Car accident lawyers can determine the entire extent of your damages and negotiate a settlement that meets all of your demands.
