AUTO, TRUCK, & MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS
Excessive speed, text messaging, impatient drivers, cell phones, exhaustion behind the wheel.
Today’s roadways are challenging even for the most alert, conscientious driver.
Technological distractions coupled with more cars – and cyclists – than ever on the roads can prove costly. It is estimated that text messaging and technological distractions now account for nearly one of every four serious motor vehicle accidents.
Road signs and signage may be inadequate. Bicycle and pedestrian lanes may be poorly marked. Even pulling out of the parking lot from the mall – especially if visibility is compromised – can be dangerous.
Campiche Arnold PLLC attorneys Linda Tran, Phil Arnold and Jeffery Campiche comprise our Motor Vehicle Accident litigation team.
Defective tires, airbags, and gas tanks have cause serious injury and death.
And the insurance company you believe will cover you – and help you – in the months following an accident may end up at odds with you. What should you do in the case of an accident?
Obviously, seek medical attention or call for emergency assistance if needed. Try to get the names and contact information of witnesses. If you have a disposable camera in the glove box or a camera on your smart phone – and it is safe to do so – take photos of the accident scene. Gathering documentation can be helpful to your legal counsel.
