Talk With A Lawyer

The scene of a car crash can be incredibly confusing and stressful. With flashing lights and sirens usually surrounding the area, it is easy to get lost in the commotion. Here are several tips to keep in mind to help you navigate the aftermath of a car accident:

  • Once you have come to a complete stop, immediately call for help if anyone has suffered an injury that requires medical attention.
  • Always remember to use your cell phone or camera to take photos of the accident scene, your injuries, and the cars that were involved, if possible.
  • Wait for an officer to arrive and write an accident report.
  • Never leave the scene of an accident unless you are asked to do so by the investigating officer.
  • Gather the names of any witnesses. Be sure to write down the names and insurance information of anyone involved in the wreck.

Following these tips after an accident may help your legal team assemble a stronger injury case on your behalf, because it’s these important details that are quickly forgotten after victims leave the scene of a collision.

History of Car Wrecks

Modern-day vehicles have come a long way. Advancements in technology and stringent motor vehicle legislation have made drivers safer today than they have ever been. At the same time, new developments in technology pose new risks for motorists.

For instance, while smartphones have made it easier for motorists to identify and avoid traffic jams, they have also dramatically increased distracted driving habits that directly contribute to many car accidents.

The best advancements in auto safety features have come from the uniform standards imposed by federal agencies on auto manufacturers. Whether it is electronic control stability systems, airbags, or seat belts, federal agencies such as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have been instrumental in uniformly implementing car safety features.

Still, tens of thousands of Americans are severely injured in car accidents each year. The majority of these accidents are caused by negligent drivers. While motorists can ensure their car is in working condition and that they’re following the rules of the road, they cannot control the actions of other drivers.

That’s why the experienced car accident lawyers at Lewis & Keller have been helping residents of Winston-Salem, Greensboro, and the surrounding areas get justice after an accident that wasn’t their fault. If you were injured by a negligent driver, call our legal professionals to protect your rights.

Types of Car Wrecks

Driving while sleepy is as dangerous as driving while intoxicated. In fact, individuals who drive after not sleeping for 24 hours are as compromised as drivers who have a blood alcohol content level of .10.

Numerous studies have demonstrated the dangers of sleep-deprived driving and how frequently it causes accidents. Thousands of drivers fall asleep at the wheel every day, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that exhausted drivers cause more than 100,000 accidents every year. Drowsy drivers may have reduced reflexes, fail to remain in their lanes, and are more likely to violate traffic laws, like failing to signal when appropriate.

The North Carolina car accident lawyers at Lewis & Keller know how to protect your legal interests after a car accident caused by a sleepy driver.

Rollover accidents are often the result of driver negligence and speeding. When a vehicle is traveling at high speeds, any sudden and sharp turns may cause the vehicle to roll over. Additionally, rollover accidents are common when multiple vehicles are involved, especially those with high centers of gravity, like SUVs and trucks.

Rollover accidents have a high fatality rate. It’s absolutely vital to ensure that everyone in your vehicle is wearing their seat belt and that children are all strapped into the appropriate car seats.

Since rollover accidents frequently lead to serious injuries and even death, it’s important to have an experienced car accident lawyer handling your case.

In 2017 alone, 3,166 lives were claimed by distracted driving, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Distracted driving has become a large issue in our nation mainly due to our dependency on mobile devices.

Many states are issuing hands-free laws in an effort to reduce distracted driving accidents. In North Carolina, minors are prohibited from using any mobile device while driving, and texting while driving is punishable by way of a $100 fine for adults.

Though steps are being taken to prevent distracted driving, this hazard remains an issue in our community. Driving safely simply cannot be done unless the driver’s full attention is on the road.

Our lawyers at Lewis & Keller can help you if you were injured in an accident caused by a distracted driver. Call us today to determine your legal options.
