Negligence relating to an auto accident case means that there was wrongdoing that caused the accident such as speeding, texting and driving, or driving through traffic signal. Police reports, photographs, and video can be significant aspects to helping a case if it goes to trial.
A Reckless Driver has no regard for the safety of others on the road – exhibiting road rage, weaving through traffic, speeding – which can cause severe accidents and injuries. If you have been injured as a result of someone’s reckless driving, it’s important to see a doctor right away and document your injury.
Intentional Misconduct pertains to a person driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. If you are involved in an auto accident and suspect the other driver was under the influence, it is important to alert the police to include this information in the official accident report and review this with your accident attorney.
If you or a friend have been involved in an auto accident, it is very important to immediately find a safe place that is not on the road. Do not leave the scene of the accident. Assess your injuries and any damage to your vehicle Call 9-1-1 and have the officer on the scene provide you with a copy of the accident report. Exchange contact information and insurance details with the other driver and be sure to take photos of the scene, damage, and collect any supporting evidence such as skid marks in the road, only if it is safe to do so. Also collect the contact information of any witnesses. Do not wait to seek medical attention.
