How Vehicles Stopped on the Side of the Road Cause San Luis Car Crashes

By Breyer Law Offices on September 5, 2012

As experienced San Luis car crash attorneys, we do everything we can to help drivers understand how vehicles stopped on the side of the road can contribute to serious car crashes. The most common ways that drivers who pull off to the side of the road, or park on the side of the road, cause or contribute to car accidents include:

  • Parking too close to the lane of traffic, or leaving little clearance between their vehicle and the bodies of oncoming cars;
  • Opening their door and swinging it into traffic; and
  • Stepping out of their vehicle into traffic.

Despite these contributions, drivers on the road should pay special attention to cars on the side of the road and move away from them as a safety precaution whenever possible.

Statistics on San Luis Car Crashes and Vehicles Stopped on the Side of the Road

Every year, the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) reports approximately 150 San Luis car crashes, including those caused by vehicles stopped on the side of the road. While accidents in this small town do not typically result in fatalities, about 15.5 percent of traffic collisions in San Luis result in injuries ranging from moderate to life-threatening. Statewide statistics report that nearly 3,800 collisions throughout Arizona every year happen with a vehicle that is parked, many times on the side of the road. These collisions result in injuries to nearly 550 people, according to recent reports.

Why Call a San Luis Personal Injury Lawyer

Although vehicles stopped on the side of the road are known to contribute to San Luis car crashes, drivers and passengers in those vehicles who are harmed in a collision should still reach out to a skilled San Luis personal injury lawyer. The Husband and Wife Law Team can help injured persons determine whether or not they have a case against the driver who struck their vehicle.

We do everything we can to help injury victims through recovery and to help them win cases in order to secure reasonable compensation for their injuries and the subsequent loss of wages and medical bills that come with those injuries.
