COMMON CAUSES FOR CAR ACCIDENT CASES

Something as every day as being cut off by a reckless driver can easily cause an accident that disrupts your life.  These accidents may not be fatal—many are not—but they can cause substantial property damage and physical harm to you or other passengers within the vehicle. Some common causes of car accidents include inclement weather, inexperienced drivers, speeding, and unsafe lane changes. Drunk driving is one of the leading causes of injury in car accidents, and it accounted for about 28% of all traffic-related fatalities in 2016. Every day, nearly 30 people die in accidents where an alcohol-impaired driver is involved.

You can count on our experienced car accident lawyer, John H. May, to aggressively protect your rights to total financial compensation for your injuries if you were hurt in a motor vehicle accident such as a/an:


  • Hit-and-run accident
  • Vehicle rollover
  • Accident with injuries to passengers
  • Accident caused by an uninsured or underinsured motorist
  • Accident in a company-owned vehicle

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT?

Even experienced drivers can be shaken up by an automotive accident. It is essential to take the proper steps to ensure you can get back to your life as quickly and efficiently as possible.

  1. Get in contact with emergency services. After an accident, call for emergency services right away. If you can, physically check on your passengers and remove yourself from the vehicle. Head to a safer location. If you are unsure of the extent of your injuries or the other parties’ injuries in your car, stay where you are and wait for the emergency responders to come to help you.
  2. Gather information. It is vital to get as much information about the accident as possible. Write down what you remember happening. If you can, take photos of the accident from several angles. Get insurance information and write down the other driver’s license plate number. Remember to be courteous, but never apologize or admit fault after an accident. Take note of the type and color of the car involved in the accident with you. Were there any witnesses? Ask them for their contact information as well.
  3. Contact May Herr & Grosh. It is never too early to speak with a Lancaster car accident lawyer. Even if you are unsure if you have a case, we can help you go over the details of what happened and determine if you need our services. Let us review your case.
