There are some cases when a Dallas car accident is relatively minor, where no one was hurt and where the circumstances that led to it were really nobody’s fault in particular. Then, there are those cases where someone most certainly was to blame because of their own negligence. Those latter cases are the ones where you may want to contact a Fort Worth car accident attorney to explore your options for suing.
Drunk drivers injure and kill thousands of people every year. In addition to being held accountable for a criminal offense, these drivers can usually be held accountable for negligence in a court. It’s worth it to talk to an attorney if one of them injures you. These drivers are menaces on the highways and the more ways they are held accountable the more likely it is that others like them will think twice before getting behind the wheel drunk.
Commercial vehicle drivers are expected to be better than the average driver, and for good reason. The vehicles they drive are oftentimes very large, heavy and dangerous to others on the road. If you’re in a wreck with one of these drivers, you’ll want to make sure that you talk to an attorney about it. Drivers who operate busses and semis are oftentimes overworked and falling asleep behind the wheel. This causes injuries and deaths every year and an attorney can help you seek compensation for.
Speeding and Other Negligence
Drivers that are sober and in control are expected to take reasonable precautions to protect the other people with whom they share the road. When they don’t and they cause injuries, they can sometimes be sued by their victims and end up having to pay damages. If you’ve been injured by such a driver, it’s worth it to pursue a lawsuit against them in court.
You can always ask an attorney about these situations. In some cases, they may want you to come in for a consultation to see if they can help you go after the negligent party. Some of them work on contingency, which means you don’t have to pay them unless you win, so there’s no risk of getting stuck with legal fees for a case that doesn’t go anywhere. They may be able to get a settlement out of the other driver, in some cases, which means getting paid without going to court.
