When Do I Have A Case?
After a car crash or other motor vehicle accident, it is not uncommon to wonder if you have a case. You may think that something you did contributed to the accident. It is always in your best interest to consult a personal injury attorney after an accident with injuries, even if you may have partial fault.
What we will need to show is that the other driver was negligent. This means the other driver either did something wrong or failed to do the right thing. Some examples of driver negligence include driving while drunk or drugged, speeding, disregarding traffic signs, driving while distracted and texting while driving. Even if you think you might be the party at fault, call and talk with us, then you will know for sure what your rights are and how to proceed.
