Car Crash

Upon waking, most expect to commute in a car at some point in the day. However, few if any start their day anticipating a car crash. Unfortunately, car crashes occur in Texas and nationwide every day. Car crashes can occur in many forms and involve a various number of parties. Additionally, car crashes can range from a minor fender bender to a serious accident that causes serious injuries or fatalities.

Whatever the scope of car accident, damages and injuries can occur due to the negligence of others. If you or a loved one were recently involved in a car crash, you may be considering legal action. You should only trust your claim with an experienced Fort Worth car crash attorney. Known as the barracuda for her confident and tenacious approach, Dorothy Hyde and her legal team have no qualms about doing whatever it takes to obtain compensation on your behalf.

Common Forms of Car Crashes

Car crashes can occur in many different ways and can involve more parties than a car alone. In some cases, another car is not even involved in the accident. Some common forms of car accidents include:

  • Single car accidents: accidents involving one vehicle. Single car accidents are usually caused by car or roadway defects.
  • Car collision accidents: accidents where a vehicle collides with one or more vehicles. Car collisions are usually caused by the negligence of one party.
  • Electric car accidents: accidents involving an electric car commonly involve a pedestrian. This may be due to the low noise input of electric cars.
  • Roll-over accidents: a deadly type of car accident the involves a car flipping off of its wheels. These accidents have a high fatality rate, especially when a vehicle design defect is involved.
  • Rideshare accidents: accidents involving rideshare services like Uber or Lyft. These types of car accidents are often due to the lax driver policies of rideshare services.

While the types of car accidents vary, most have one element in common: negligent driving or behaviors. Common forms of negligent driving behaviors include driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving while distracted by a device, driving while exhausted, and failing to adhere to traffic laws. Negligent driving is a costly mistake that should result in consequences for the negligent party.

In some cases, negligence can arise in the manufacturing or production of cars. Common manufacturing negligence includes, faulty tires, improper maintenance, malfunctioning seatbelts, and poor roof support. In single car accidents, those responsible for designing and maintaining roadways could be at fault.

After experiencing a car crash of any form, you should seek medical assistance. Many injuries that can be accrued in a car crash are not immediately apparent. This can be due to the shock and adrenaline of a car crash or the internal nature of the injury.

When you have sought medical attention, you should consider contacting a Fort Worth car crash attorney. Car crashes can alter your quality of life by putting you through financial strain and physical pain. An experienced attorney can fight to obtain compensation on your behalf to alleviate some of the damages. For a free consultation, contact the Law Office of Dorothy Hyde today.
