No two motor vehicle accidents are ever the same, as each crash will have its own unique people and factors involved. Some collisions may be limited to just two vehicles while other accidents could be multiple-vehicle wrecks.
Common kinds of automobile accidents generally include, but are not limited to:
Most people are driving their own motor vehicles, but some car accidents could involve commercial vehicles or other people operating company cars. There is also the possibility that a negligent driver may be uninsured or underinsured, and you will want to make sure that you have the help of an attorney even when you are dealing with your own insurance company.
One driver’s negligence is usually to blame for causing most car crashes in the New Orleans area, but multiple-vehicle crashes could involve multiple negligent parties.
Some of the most common examples of driver negligence include, but are not limited to:
Failure to Yield
Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
Following Too Closely (Tailgating)
Aggressive or Reckless Driving
There can also be automobile accidents that stem to mechanical malfunctions within vehicles, and such cases may involve far more complicated liability than traditional car crash claims. Defective parts could make manufacturers liable in some cases, but maintenance companies could also be held responsible for failure to properly perform certain repairs.
