Is It Worth Getting A Lawyer For Minor Car Accidents?

Most people do not contact a professional when the accident is minor. That’s because they don’t realize that every important thing to them is at risk, even after a minor accident.Sometimes, even your relationships with your family are affected.

Some minor injuries could lead to major complications later on but are not evident a few days after the minor accident. You might lose your source of income down the line.

What Are The Common Causes of Car Accidents?

‘Distracted driving’ is said to be the most common cause of car accidents in the country. It causes more crashes every year than speeding, drunk driving, and other major road accident causes.

No matter how hard you try to be safe, other people’s negligence can still cause accidents.

Some examples of distracted driving is when the driver uses a cellphone while driving, or eating food, or drinking from a mug or bottle.

Other common causes of auto accidents are the following:

  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Reckless driving
  • Not following ‘right of way’ rules
  • Tail-gating or following too closely

What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Car accidents are always very stressful. But being calm and polite can help the process along. So try to do whatever you need to do to stay calm and keep a clear mind.

It is important that you don’t leave the scene of the accident, even if it is just a minor accident. You could get in trouble if you leave the scene of an accident.

Carefully move your car safely off the road, if you can. Use safety tools such as cones or flares, if you have them, to alert other drivers on the road.

Check yourself and your passengers for injuries. If nobody has been injured, you may exchange insurance information.

Often, your insurance company has informed you of what you must gather in such cases.

If somebody is injured, call emergency services, such as 911, immediately.

Remember, do not sign any document unless the documents are from a police officer or a representative of your insurance company.
