- Rear-end collisions are among the most common types of motor vehicle accidents. In these types of crashes, the driver in the front car is almost always not at fault. The rear-most driver sometimes slams into the car in front because the driver is distracted, fatigued or impaired by drugs or alcohol. These are factors that can show the driver was negligent and you deserve compensation.
- Head-on accidents can have grave consequences. Sometimes, a driver falls asleep and drifts into the path of the oncoming car, resulting in a collision with catastrophic injuries. But other factors could lead to a head-on crash. The driver might be texting or otherwise distracted.
- Intersection accidents occur frequently in Auburn and throughout Alabama. The at-fault driver might run a red light or stop sign. In some instances, a driver is making a left turn and strikes another driver or motorcycle heading into the intersection with the right of way.
- Drunk driving accidents can have tragic consequences. Survivors often report extensive emotional trauma in addition to physical injury. Every 30 minutes, a death results from a drunk driver causing an auto or truck accident. Don't let another minute pass before you get representation from experienced lawyers who advocate for people injured by drunk drivers.
- Hit and run accidents can be complicated. There is never a legitimate reason to fail to stop after being involved in a collision. Often, drivers flee because they are driving under the influence. They may hit and run because they lack valid auto insurance or operator's license, or if they are violating another law such as not having a child in a child safety seat. The definition of a hit and run accident is any time another vehicle collides with you and the driver of that vehicle does not stop to exchange information about the accident. The difficulty that victims frequently have collecting damages for injuries or compensation for property damage make a bad situation even worse.
- Texting while driving accidents have become increasingly common. A study indicated as many as one in five drivers send or receive text messages while driving. On highways, on residential streets, in mall parking lots, texting while driving is creating new hazards for other motorists and pedestrians in Auburn.
There are many other types of car wrecks in Auburn. No two are the same. Talk to us immediately about your potential case.
The majority of car wreck claims settle without having to go to trial. Some cases are resolved through negotiations with the insurance company. Other times, our attorneys will file a lawsuit on behalf of a client and begin the process of interrogatories and discovery. This involves questions and the taking of testimony. Often, the case will settle after a lawsuit has been filed but before trial. If the case does go before a Lee County court, we will be prepared to protect our client's best interests and seek maximum compensation.
