What Hazards Does Traffic Pose?

Submitted by jrlaw on Jul 30th, 2010

Car accident personal injury attorneys frequently run into very similar cases. This is simply because some driving conditions, and some types of drivers, are inherently more dangerous than others. Accidents tend to occur under similar conditions, as these conditions make it difficult for drivers to see or, in the case of heavy traffic, because the stress that they cause leads to poor judgment and impatience. If you want to play it safe, there are certain types of conditions and drivers that you can try to avoid.

The majority of fatal car crashes involve drivers between the ages of 18-28. This is not because these drivers are inherently bad. In fact, those are the ages when your reflexes are the best they’ll ever be. However, it’s also the age range where people tend to do the most driving and when they’re most likely to make bad decisions. Experience counts for a lot where driving is concerned and, quite simply, these drivers don’t have enough of it to know what to do in bad situations. Oftentimes, a car wreck attorney will find themselves representing someone who has been hurt, or killed, by one of these younger drivers.

What Does a Personal Injury Law Firm Do?

A personal injury law firm probably works in a broader swath of the law than you think. They cover everything from deaths and injuries that happen on the road to the same incidents that happen in doctor’s offices. They represent individuals whose babies have suffered injuries during birth and people who bought a product that they thought was safe, and who were hurt or killed because they’d been led astray in that regard. These law firms sometimes work under special agreements with their clients that allow individuals who don’t have a lot of money to exercise their legal rights.

A contingency agreement is one where the attorney begins working on your case at no charge. It usually comes with a free consultation. During the consultation, the attorney will determine if it seems like you have a case and if they’re interested in taking it up for you. Depending upon what type of case you’re filing, they may consult with experts in that field to see if it seems like your case is one that’s likely to win. If it is, you don’t have to pay to have it move forward.
