Types of Car Accidents in Decatur
Experienced personal injury attorneys who know how to get results
When you’ve been hurt in a car accident, the following weeks and months can be confusing and frustrating. If a negligent driver hit you, you deserve financial compensation, but the insurance company will try to pay you as little as possible. That’s why you need an experienced personal injury lawyer who will fight for you.
At Kurle Justus, LLC, we know how insurance companies operate. They use different tactics to try to limit your compensation. We don’t think you should be paid less than you deserve. We build strong cases that insurance companies must take seriously.
Our firm handles many types of car accidents, including:
Some drivers text, talk on the phone, adjust dashboard controls, or eat and drink while they’re behind the wheel. These activities take their eyes off the road. It may only be for a few seconds – but during those few seconds they may fail to see a car coming to a sudden stop or pulling in front of them. They are unable to react in time to prevent a crash.
Driving while under the influence is against the law for good reason. Alcohol can affect the judgment of drivers and slows their reaction time. Drivers who have been drinking make poor decisions and are unable to take necessary actions to prevent accidents.
Drivers can also be impaired after using other substances. These include marijuana, opioids, and prescription drugs. The use of these substances affects their ability to safely drive a car, and the result is a crash that leaves people hurt or killed.
In this common type of accident, a car crashes into the rear of your vehicle. The driver of the other car may have been distracted, speeding, or fatigued. As a result, they don’t notice that they are too close to your car and can’t stop in time. While the driver of the car in back is generally considered to be at fault, they may refuse to accept responsibility and blame you for causing the accident.
These types of accidents can cause serious and often fatal injuries. They usually occur when a car veers into another lane and crashes into an oncoming car. The driver may have been under the influence of alcohol or drugs, was texting or fell asleep at the wheel.
In these types of accidents, one car crashes into the side of another. The collision resembles the letter “T.” Intersections are often the site of T-bone accidents, many times when one car is making a turn.
When you’ve been hurt in a crash, we want you to focus on recovering from your injuries. We will be your voice and fight the insurance companies on your behalf. We’re not a large law firm that will hand you off to a case manager. You deal directly with your attorney, who will guide you through the legal process every step of the way.
