Let us count the ways.
Sadly, there are many catalysts that figuratively and literally drive automobile accidents across the expansive geographical practice range of Simien & Simien’s experienced legal team. We note on our tenured Louisiana personal injury law firm’s website that crash causes are many and that, “Accidents happen every day.”
Tragically, that shouldn’t be the case. And absent third-party negligence, it seldom is. When all motorists simply drive with base competence and due care, the varied roadways across Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi (Simien & Simien’s primary practice locales) are routinely safe for those who travel them.
Unfortunately, though, reality dictates otherwise. Broad-based driver negligence is frighteningly common on America’s streets and highways, and the toll it extracts is often deadly or marked by catastrophic injury.
Many thousands of crashes occurring annually across the above-cited multi-state terrain owe to just a few select causes. Those centrally include involve these factors:
- Drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs
- Speeding (main cause for Texas crashes during a recent year)
- Reckless driving (behaviors ranging from behind-the-wheel texting and road rage to tailgating and excessive lane changing)
- Driver inattentiveness owing to varied distractions (e.g., kids, pets, eating, grooming and so forth)
We flatly state the obvious on our website concerning motorists’ involvement in the aforementioned and related activities. We state that “such habits and decisions of other drivers can change things drastically” for motorists in close proximity who are making good faith efforts to be safe.
Individuals and their loved one who are injured because of another driver’s negligence do not lack for legal remedies. They can turn to experienced attorneys for diligent representation aimed at a maximum money recovery. The compensation they receive can help them pay medical expenses, recoup lost wages, cover rehabilitation costs and more.
