Causes of Car Accidents in West New York
Negligence, including human error, recklessness, and distraction, causes most car accidents. One of the most common car accidents caused by negligence is the rear-end accident. A rear-end accident occurs when a vehicle collides with the vehicle located directly ahead.
Distracted driving is the most cited reason for rear-end accidents. Distracted driving includes any of the following and more:
- Talking on a cellphone;
- Carrying on intense conversations;
- Eating; and
- Applying cosmetics.
Other types of car accidents include:
- Head-on collisions;
- T-bone, or side-impact, crashes;
- Single-vehicle crashes;
- Multi-car pile-ups; and
- Sideswipe collisions.
Of these accidents, head-on collisions and t-bone crashes are the most likely to cause severe injuries and fatalities. Head-on collisions and t-bone crashes are regularly associated with excessive speed and driver intoxication.
The Importance of Accident Documentation
Any car crash has the potential to cause serious injuries or death. All car accident injuries need immediate medical attention whether or not they seem severe at the time. Timely medical care ensures hard to detect injuries, like those to the head and brain, receive treatment before they can worsen.
Visiting a medical provider and attending follow-up appointments also creates valuable documentation for use in any future car accident claim. The more documentation you bring to your car accident consultation, the more accurate advice your attorney can give you as to the value of your claim.
When you attend your free claim review at the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Hasson, P.C., bring along any medical records, police reports, or insurance correspondence you have in your possession. Every car accident is different, and we want to give you the best and most knowledgeable opinion of your claim.
