Why do highway accidents happen?
Collisions caused by other drivers on highways in the Dallas area often occur due to mistakes behind the wheel. In general, such drivers often behaved recklessly or negligently. In particular, they often did one of the following things to cause a highway accident:
- Speeding or driving too fast, especially during hazardous weather conditions.
- Tailgating or driving too close to the driver in front, often resulting in a rear-end accident.
- Texting while driving or other forms of distracted driving.
- Falling asleep at the wheel, especially late at night.
- Drinking and driving or driving under the influence of drugs.
These are just some of the most common causes of highways accidents. Such crashes happen for many other, complex reasons and accidents can involve multiple cars. But whether you were rear-ended in traffic, hit by a car changing lanes, or involved in a head-on collision, the result can be serious injuries that have a significant impact on your life.
Whatever the cause of your highway collision, make sure you fully understand the legal options available to you. Make sure you talk to a Dallas highway accident lawyer as soon as possible.
How much is my highway accident worth?
Depending on the circumstances of your case, your accident claim could be worth thousands of dollars or significantly more. The total value of your case may depend on several different factors, including:
- The severity of your injury.
- The cost of your medical care.
- Whether your car needs to be repaired or replaced.
- The length of your recovery.
- Whether you can return to work.
If you sustained serious injuries or a permanent disability, your claim could be worth much more since you may need ongoing medical care and additional money for lost future income. The bottom line is you should not have to pay for someone else’s reckless behavior.
