Car accidents can be devastating to you and your loved ones. In addition to suffering from the physical injuries, you are also going through an emotional trauma, as well as worrying about expensive medical treatments, lost wages and a damaged vehicle.

Many car accidents occur due to negligence. If another driver was failing to drive in a safe manner, he or she may be responsible for causing your accident and are therefore responsible for the expenses you incurred as a result.

What Causes Accidents?

At Gentry & Ashton Law, our auto accident attorneys are familiar with all types of negligence that can cause car accidents. Common examples of negligence can include:
  • Distracted driving: Drivers have a responsibility to keep their eyes and their attention on the road at all times. Texting, making phone calls, eating, changing the radio station, or updating a GPS can all lead to major accidents. If distracted driving is found to have caused an accident, the driver may be held liable—or legally responsible—for any injuries suffered in the crash.
  • Driving under the influence (DUI): Mothers Against Drunk Driving reports that every minute, a person is injured in an alcohol-related crash. Getting behind the wheel of a car after drinking, using drugs, or taking prescription medication can severely impair a person’s ability to drive.
  • Aggressive driving: Traffic laws are in place to protect drivers on the highway. Speeding, changing lanes abruptly, tailgating, running red lights, and other violations of these laws can all contribute to accidents and are a form of negligence.

What Should I Do If I’ve Been in a Car Accident?

If you have been injured in an auto accident, the attorneys at Gentry & Ashton Law are ready to help you. We recommend you take the following steps:
  • CALL THE POLICE: Call the police to the scene as it is important to get a police report of the incident.
  • OBTAIN INSURANCE INFORMATION: Make sure you get the insurance information of any person involved in the accident. Be sure to write down their license plate number, contact number, address, and driver’s license number.
  • DOCUMENT PROPERTY DAMAGE AND INJURIES: The best record of damages and injuries are photographs. If you can, take numerous pictures of any cars involved, any damage present on any of the cars involved, and any injuries you have incurred.
  • SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION: See your doctor as soon as possible. Make sure all injuries are documented, no matter how minor they might seem.
  • CONSULT AN ATTORNEY: Once you have seen the doctor, your next step is to call an auto accident attorney. We can help you determine what your next actions will be.
*The above steps are for people who DO NOT have life-threatening or extremely traumatic injuries. If you have been traumatically injured CALL 911 immediately and concentrate solely on recovery*
