Car Accidents Are Caused by Driver Error

According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), about 90% of traffic accidents are caused by driver errors, such as:

  • Distracted driving
  • Risky driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Performing other tasks while driving
  • Failure to see other cars
  • Misjudged distances
  • Failure to control car

All other factors, such as weather and road conditions, account for only the remaining 10% of car accidents. Accidents are also caused or worsened by defective vehicles.

Are You Partly Responsible for Your Accident

If you have been told you can’t recover compensation because you are partly responsible for your accident, then you need a lawyer’s help. In Indiana, you can receive compensation as long as you are less than 50% responsible for your accident, even if you are considered more responsible than any other single driver.

As experienced car accident lawyers, we can help you resist arguments that you are responsible for an accident to try to reduce your fault according to the court and maximize your compensation.

Is the Insurance Company on Your Side?

Insurance companies like you to think that they represent you, but the truth is they represent their shareholders first, and their loyalty is often to their profits, not to the people they are supposed to protect.

After your car accident, your insurance company will try to find ways to avoid paying compensation. Insurance companies have been known to not tell you when you have additional coverage, try to imply your injuries are not covered, or even represent other drivers against their policyholders to avoid having to pay claims.
