Common Causes of Car Accidents
Auto accidents can be just that— accidental. However, if you or your loved one were involved in a car crash that was exacerbated or spurred on because of another driver’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering. Identifying the cause of your collision is a key step in pursuing monetary damages from the at-fault party.
The following are some of the most common causes of auto accidents:
- A driver impaired by drugs or alcohol
- Use of cell phone or smartphone while driving
- Fatigued drivers
- Careless or reckless driving
- Ignorance of “road rules”
- Failure to yield to the right-of-way
- Bad weather
- Issues with car’s electrical/ signaling capabilities
Regardless of the circumstances that caused or contributed to your collision, our team has the wherewithal to investigate and build a compelling case to prove liability and the full value of the claim.
Do I Really Need an Attorney?
In the aftermath of a major accident, the last thing you’re in a position to do is to make serious, life-altering decisions that will affect you and your family’s long-term financial future. However, that’s exactly what some insurance companies want you to do: not because it’s in your best interest, but because it’s clearly in theirs. In fact, some of them may even use various intimidation tactics or spread misinformation so that you start asking yourself, “Do I really need an attorney?” In our decades of experience, there is only one answer to that question: YES.
Insurance companies are not required by law to represent your interests, nor are they paid to do so. On the contrary, their job is to minimize your claim so that they limit their financial exposure. If that means you end up losing your house and savings and end up financially destroyed because you can’t pay your medical bills or earn a living, insurance companies don’t lose any sleep at night. In fact, their bottom-line improves, and someone may even get a promotion…while you and your family struggle and suffer.
At The Tapella & Eberspacher Law Firm, you can be assured that every single member of our experienced St. Louis personal injury attorney team fights aggressively to prevent this scenario from unfolding. We aren’t in the least bit intimidated by insurance companies. In fact, the instant insurance companies see “Tapella & Eberspacher” attached to a claim, many of them realize it’s in their best interest to be reasonable and fair from the outset. If they aren’t, they will have to face our highly experienced and battle-tested team at trial.
