Types of Car Accidents
In most car accidents, negligence is assigned to one or more drivers. For example, if you were driving and following all of the laws but another driver hit you while they were texting and driving, it would be a clear-cut case. However, some accidents may not be as clear, requiring thorough investigations by a legal professional.
Types of car accidents include:
- Driving over the speed limit
- Driving recklessly
- Failure to signal
- Not following traffic laws
- Disregarding traffic conditions
- Disregarding weather conditions
- Texting and driving
- Driving under the influence
- Distracted driving
- Fatigued driving

Can I File A Car Accident Claim After Insurance Pays?
Since most insurance settlements state specifically that the amount agreed upon will be the only compensation paid, once you sign to a settlement it’s usually difficult to pursue any more compensation. If you have already signed an agreement, it’s possible you may still have options. Call our experienced attorneys today to learn how we can help you.
What if Your Injury Was Caused by a Minor Auto Accident?
Is this what happened to you? You are hurting from persisting neck pain
since being in a car accident six months ago. That rear-end collision
left very little damage to the back of your automobile. The insurance
adjuster for the driver who rear-ended you says the collision did not
cause your neck pain because there was no damage to your vehicle. What
do you do?
You should consult with lawyers who specialize in car accident cases and personal injury claims. The situation above is a typical response we see from insurance adjustors when there is little or no visible damage to your motor vehicle after a collision. But, just because there was little damage to your car does not mean you could not be injured.
The law requires you to prove your neck pain was a result of the car accident. In Etherton v. Owners Insurance Company, the Federal Courts instructs judges to use a practical approach to decide if a car crash caused the injury:
- Is it possible your neck pain was from the collision?
- Did your neck pain begin soon after the accident?
- Were you free of neck pain until this motor vehicle accident?
- Do your medical records show there is no other likely reason why you developed neck pain?
If an attorney expertly investigates your case, and documents that the answer to these questions is “yes”, it is not fair for the insurance company to deny your claim.
Our attorneys have the specialized knowledge and experience to see that you are treated fairly by insurance companies. We know the engineering studies that show there is no direct connection between the amount of damage to a car, and whether the people inside got injured. There are scientific reasons why one person can be killed, but another can walk away without a scratch, from the same accident.
