Who is Responsible for your Mount Laurel Auto Accident?
To you, it seems obvious who is at fault for the accident but we all wish things were so simple. Big insurance companies have been trying for decades to put up huge road blocks to prevent injury victims from being fairly compensated. This includes lobbying legislatures to pass lawsuit restrictions to fighting every claim on a case by case basis. To overcome these obstacles, it is important to start an early investigation to make sure you prove reckless or negligent conduct by the other driver caused the accident. There are many issues that can lead to a Mount Laurel car, bus, truck or motorcycle accident, including:
Fatigue: Fatigued driving can be just as dangerous as driving while intoxicated from alcohol or drugs. Fatigue can lead to a driver falling asleep or driving through a red traffic light.
Distracted Driving: Studies show that distracted driving is on the rise because of smart phones. In years past, changing the channel on the radio or eating while driving was the likely cause of distracted driving. However, smart phones have texting, GPS, social media and other applications that are major causes of distracted driving accidents. Smart phones have even caused an increase in pedestrian accidents. A vehicle going 50 mph travels approximately 75 feet per second. So even a quick distraction can lead to dire results.
Failing to follow Rules of the Road: Drivers know that changing lanes without signaling, speeding on wet or icy roads, tailgating and other traffic violations are dangerous but they engage in this reckless behavior nonetheless. Hiring a Mount Laurel Car Accident Lawyer will help hold these reckless drivers accountable.
Driving while Intoxicated: Everyone should know that operating a motor vehicle while impaired is a leading cause of injuries and deaths across the nation, and Mount Laurel, New Jersey is no exception. You probably know someone that was wrongfully killed in an auto accident. It happens all too frequently.
Poorly Designed Roads and Vehicles: Dangerous intersections or defective airbags often lead to car crashes. When this occurs there may be a product liability claim against the auto manufacturer or a dangerous highway design case against the State of New Jersey or Mount Laurel Township. Having an experienced trial lawyer will help you identify these issues to learn whether you have a valid claim.
