Flagstaff Car Accident Lawyers
Legal Help After a Car Crash
Over the years, Flagstaff, Arizona has become a hub for travel and tourism for Arizona residents and visitors alike because of its close proximity to a wide variety of attractions, including the Grand Canyon, Meteor Crater, and Route 66. The city itself is also home to the U.S. Naval Observatory and Northern Arizona University. Because there is so much travel in and through Flagstaff, the likelihood of being involved in an unfortunate auto accident increases as well. While auto accidents can range in severity from fender benders to rollovers, being involved in any type of crash is both stressful and can easily lead to injuries for anyone involved.
The Flagstaff accident attorneys at the Breyer Law Offices, P.C. understand that serious injuries, medical bills, and many other losses can result from a car accident. Those who have been injured in an accident caused by another party's negligent or reckless actions can seek compensation from those responsible to aid in recovering from the losses and costs that are a result of the accident. Without proper compensation, those who have suffered due to another's actions may not be able to fully recover from their injuries and face major debt due to medical care costs.
What Actions Result in Car Accidents?
Motor vehicles require concentration and experience in order to operate in a safe manner and avoid accidents. Unfortunately, many people take this for granted and choose to operate their vehicle negligently and with little regard to the safety of those around them. Car crashes rarely affect only the driver of the vehicle that caused the accident, but instead can cause serious injuries and losses to those in surrounding vehicles, on foot, or those owning the property damaged by the accident. Accidents are often caused by various negligent actions by drivers, with small mistakes frequently leading to serious collisions. Furthermore, acts of extreme negligence, such as driving drunk, being distracted while driving, speeding, disobeying traffic signals, and other reckless actions often lead to some of the most dangerous accidents possible.
Not all car accidents are caused by drivers, however, with dangerous roads often playing a large role in crashes. When a road is in disrepair or features some sort of danger that causes an accident, injured victims can seek compensation from the government entities that are responsible for the upkeep of the road.
How Does an Auto Accident Affect the Body?
Modern motor vehicles feature a huge amount of safety features that have been designed and tested to protect occupants from the devastating impact of auto accidents. Unfortunately, many vehicles don't have the newest crash safety technology, and even the best safety features cannot protect occupants from all manners of harm. Because of the fast speed and heavy weight of motor vehicles, crashes involving cars crashing into each other, into a stationary hazard, or into pedestrians all create a huge amount of force that affects all involved.
During a crash, the human body is subjected to the forces of the impact, flying debris, and any other hazards created by the crash. Depending on the circumstances of the crash, an occupant or pedestrian involved can suffer broken bones, head trauma, cuts, bruises, crushing injuries, paralysis, burns, spine injuries, organ damage, whiplash, and many other types of injuries. Recovery from such trauma may take months, years, or may never heal, resulting in large costs and a possible inability to work.
Finding a Flagstaff Auto Accident Injury Lawyer
While the actions that caused an accident can often be obvious and easily recognizable to those involved, proving fault and successfully seeking compensation for one's injuries is often very difficult. If you have been injured in an accident, you should not try to prove fault and find compensation on your own. The auto accident attorneys at the Breyer Law Offices, P.C. have the experience, skills, and determination needed to find important evidence and prove fault, as well as get the proper compensation from insurance companies.
