Car Accident Lawyer in Woodstock
About Auto Accidents
Every day, thousands of people are injured in car accidents all across
the country. The unfortunate thing is, most of these accidents could have
been avoided if it were not for the negligent action of another. Drivers
can become involved in accidents a number of different ways, but they
all revolve around poor choices and lack of adherence to traffic laws.
One of the major
causes of car accidents is distraction. Drivers can become distracted many different ways, but
the leading cause is
driving while texting. Texting not only takes a driver's eyes off of the road, but it takes
their mind and hands off of the road as well. This is enough distraction
to cause a major motor vehicle collision.
After a car crash, the other person's insurance company is going to
try to shift as much of the liability onto you as they can.
Liability in a car accident is the percentage of fault that you were at. If you were found partially
liable for the accident, then you can only recover as much as the other
person was at fault. This means that if you were determined to have been
40 percent at fault, you could only recover 60 percent of the total cost
of damages. You may even run into issues if you were involved in a collision
with a driver who wasn't insured in which case you would have to file an
uninsured motorist claim. Whatever the case may be, trust our firm to handle your car accident
so that you get the maximum compensation possible.
