If another driver’s negligence leaves you injured in a car accident, you may be at odds about how to move past the incident. If you’ve been seriously injured, it makes matters that much more difficult. Working closely with an Oakland car accident lawyer will help ensure that you obtain the compensation you need to reach your fullest recovery. 

The Cause of Your Accident

Car accidents can be caused by a wide range of factors, but driver negligence is often at the root of these dangerous accidents. Driver negligence can come in many different forms, including:

  • Distraction – To drive safely, you must pay close attention to the road ahead, to the traffic all around, and to all the traffic signs, lights, and signals. When a motorist allows his or her attention to land on anything other than driving safely, that motorist makes a traffic accident more likely. Smartphones have become one of the most common and most dangerous distractions on our highways. 
  • Impairment – You wouldn’t get behind the wheel after hoisting a drink or two too many, and other drivers shouldn’t either. When they do, dangerous car accidents can happen.
  • Exhaustion – You wouldn’t drink and drive, but many motorists don’t recognize that driving while exhausted can have similar physical effects. Drowsy motorists often cause car accidents.
  • Excess Speed – Speed often plays a role in deadly traffic accidents, and excess speed increases the odds that any ensuing accident will be deadly.
  • Aggression – Aggression has no safe place behind the wheel of a car. Aggressive drivers are willfully dangerous and often engage in multiple dangerous acts on any given outing. These can include speeding dangerously, zipping in and out of traffic, honking incessantly, provoking other drivers, tailgating, refusing to yield the right-of-way, ignoring traffic signs and lights, and much more.

Negligent drivers are dangerous drivers who often leave others seriously injured – or worse.

Your Losses

A serious car accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence can leave you facing serious losses, including:

  • Medical Costs – Your medical expenses can range from emergency care and hospitalization to follow-up care, treatment from doctors and specialists, rehabilitation, physical therapy, prescription medications, and much more. 
  • Lost Wages – If your injuries keep you off the job, you can expect to experience a decrease in earnings. If your injuries are quite serious, you could face decreased earnings into your future. 
  • Pain and Suffering – The violent nature of car accidents (and the extreme impact of the crash) can lead to immense physical and emotional pain and suffering that can have lasting effects. 

It’s important to assess all of the damages you’ve suffered to help ensure that you are fully compensated.
