Automobile Accidents Become Ever-Increasing

Jun 9, 2008
With the ever-increasing number of motor vehicles on the roads today, it is no surprise to find that car, motorcycle and truck accidents are a leading cause of personal injury. It has often been said that individuals are more at risk for becoming injured while driving rather than flying, and as their are more individuals on the road each year, this appears to quickly becoming the dangerous truth.

Many of these accidents could have been prevented if traffic laws and common sense had been observed. Drivers who cause accidents -- while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, by driving recklessly, falling asleep at the wheel, talking on a cell phone, or otherwise being distracted -- can be held liable.

Automobile accident cases can range from accidents involving modest injuries to those in which death and catastrophic injuries are the result. Cases may also involve suing the client's own insurance company or uninsured and underinsured motorists -- when the responsible party either has no insurance or not enough insurance to pay for the damages caused.

Often, the most devastating injuries occur when trucks are involved in an accident. It is important for attorneys to be knowledgeable of state and federal regulations governing the conduct of truck drivers, as well as the condition of their vehicles.

Automobile and truck accident cases also may involve other complex issues including dangerous highway design, dangerous design of an automobile or truck, and liquor liability claims against bars that serve drivers to the point of intoxication. These cases may involve multiple defendants including state and local governments, a state's department of transportation, and automobile manufacturers.

Liquor Liability and Automobile Accidents

Liquor liability involves bodily injury or personal damage in which a person or business can be held responsible for causing or contributing to the intoxication of a person; furnishing alcoholic beverages to a person under the legal drinking age or under the influence of alcohol; or violating any statute, ordinance, or regulation relating to the sale, distribution, or use of alcoholic beverages.

As many automobile accidents involve the use or misuse of alcohol, liquor liability holds those parties who have provided alcohol to those already intoxicated or those under the legal drinking age responsible for their actions.

If you have been involved in an automobile accident and have suffered injury, you may have a legal case. To learn more about automobile accidents and liquor liability, or to protect yourself from these, it is advisable to speak with an experienced law firm.
