What Are The Most Common Types Of Accidents?
There are numerous varieties of car crashes. Some of the most common types include those below.
Drunk Driving Crashes
Drunk drivers often inflict devastating injuries on their victims. While the law punishes drunk drivers, that doesn’t do much to alleviate some of the pain and lasting impacts the accident has on victims. Insurance companies are not thrilled to cover the costs of those injuries. In fact, the drunk driver’s insurance company and your own insurance company will limit the amount of coverage they have to pay out for your injuries and losses to the greatest extent they can unless you have a lawyer on your side.
Parking Lot And Private Ramp Accidents
When an accident occurs in a parking lot or parking ramp, more than one party may be liable for negligence. Determining fault can be difficult, especially in a busy parking lot. Evidence in parking lot accident cases can disappear in a hurry, particularly if the business owner is concerned about liability. We have a record of successfully representing clients in parking lot and parking ramp accidents, including drivers, cyclists and pedestrians.
Ride-sharing is becoming an increasingly common form of transportation. As popularity grows, thanks to companies like Uber and Lyft, so does the number of accidents. Rideshare accidents can lead to devastating injuries for passengers, pedestrians and drivers of other vehicles. Fault in a rideshare accident is determined the same way as in a regular car accident. Many drivers are covered by their own insurance policies, so the procedures and steps are the same when making a claim. However, because multiple parties are involved, you should still consult with an experienced lawyer.
A T-bone accident happens when one car slams into the side of another, often with catastrophic results. Like any accident, there are many causes of T-bone accidents, including road conditions, reckless driving and impaired driving. When a car is hit from the side, the occupants can get devastating injuries from the impact alone, as a window and a car door only separate them. Although it may seem like the driver of the colliding car is at fault, it isn’t always so cut and dry. Sometimes, these accidents require extensive investigation to determine fault. We are experienced attorneys who can help sift through information and evidence to help you present a compelling case.
Texting While Driving
Texting while driving is becoming a huge problem. With the increase of cellphone usage, drivers are often distracted by various things happening on their phones. A person’s phone data can definitively show that a driver was texting with someone, actively searching the internet or looking at a map on the phone while driving. We know what it takes to present a convincing case of texting while driving or any form of distracted driving. It often requires witness testimony, phone data usage records and accident reconstruction that convincingly presents slow reaction time by the other driver.
Why is distracted driving so dangerous? Many experts compare distracted driving to drunk driving. Both impair the driver’s ability to concentrate on the road, their reaction times and their judgment. Studies have shown that the effect of getting distracted by a cellphone continues to impair a driver for several seconds after they put down the device. Serious, life-altering car accidents are the frequent result of this negligent behavior. Other types of distracted driving can including eating while driving as well as listening to loud music, audiobooks and even passengers.
Aside from the devastating injuries they can cause, multicar accidents create a special problem for insurance adjusters to determine who may have been initially at fault as well as which drivers may have been negligent in contributing to the accident. Determining exactly who is at fault for causing a multicar accident is critical. Fortunately, we have aggressively represented people injured in multicar motor vehicle accidents for many years and can help gather compelling evidence to present for your case.
ATV And RV Accidents
Recreational vehicles generally include boats, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), dirt bikes, golf carts and off-road vehicles, but other vehicles may qualify as well. Every vehicle operator, retailer, manufacturer and property owner has a duty to ensure reasonable safety and prevent injuries by minimizing dangers to others. Whether you were the driver, a passenger or a pedestrian in a recreational vehicle accident, you stand to recover compensation if negligence was involved.
Rush hour is a pain for everyone. After a long day at work, the last thing you want to do is sit in traffic waiting for the car in front of you to move. Unfortunately, many accidents also happen during rush hour. You do not have to face the aftermath of a rush-hour accident alone. We are there to advocate for you throughout the entire experience – which often means helping you get the health care services you need, handling insurance issues for you and guiding you through this time so that you make informed decisions with confidence.
Reckless driving is a broad term that encompasses behaviors such as speeding, failure to adhere to traffic laws, distracted driving, racing, driving under the influence and texting while driving. Like other accidents, reckless driving can cause terrible accidents with serious injuries. Reckless driving is often a more severe offense than careless driving because of the conscious choice to behave recklessly. At Flesch & Beck Law, we have experience investigating, gathering evidence and presenting a case for compensation for an accident resulting from reckless driving.
If you were the victim of a hit-and-run or an underinsured driver, it may initially seem that you have limited options. However, you will see that your options are plentiful with the right legal representation. You may have minimal uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage, but we can often uncover and access other coverage available through your own insurance policies or the driver’s policies. Even if the identity of the driver is unknown or they are not convicted of a crime, we can help you pursue the compensation you deserve.
Accidents Involving Passengers
Except under very special circumstances of negligence, passengers injured in accidents in Colorado can sue for financial damages, even if their own drivers are fully responsible for causing the accidents. We know that filing a claim against a relative, friend or colleague’s insurance company can feel difficult. However, you deserve to be compensated for your injuries. If you had an injury while riding as a passenger, discuss your case with us.
