What Is Considered a Car Accident?
Car accidents are often caused by negligence. Negligence is when a person or company fails to act as a reasonable person would in the same situation. For example, a driver who is texting while driving is not acting as a reasonable person would. This driver is failing to drive in a safe manner and is driving in a way that creates a dangerous situation for other drivers on the road. Car accidents are typically caused by one or more negligent drivers.
Examples of car accidents include:
- Road rage car accidents
- Car accidents caused by drunk drivers
- Car accidents caused by distracted drivers
- Car accidents caused by drivers who are speeding
- Car accidents caused by drivers who are fatigued
- Car accidents caused by drivers who are speeding and texting
If you were involved in a car accident that was caused by another driver, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Our car accident lawyers in Banning know how to prove that another driver's negligence caused your injuries and how to work with insurance companies to get you the compensation you deserve.
