Causes of Car Accidents in Mt. Vernon

When you’ve been in a car accident, identifying the cause of the crash is a key part of determining liability and filing a claim for damages. Usually, the most common causes of a car crash include one or a combination of the following:

  • Distracted driving, including using a cellphone while driving;
  • Drunk or impaired driving;
  • Speeding or driving an unsafe speed for conditions;
  • Performing an illegal maneuver;
  • Failing to stop or failing to yield; and
  • Driving aggressively. 

In addition to driver behavior, other causes of car accidents include vehicle malfunctions, such as faulty tires or brakes, and defective road or signage conditions.

How to File a Claim After a Mt. Vernon Car Accident

If you’ve been in a car accident, it’s important that you understand your options for recovering damages and the claims process. Immediately after the crash, it will be important to seek medical care, file a police report, and file a report with your insurance company.

The insurance company will open an investigation into the crash that seeks to determine fault and liability, as well as damages. At the conclusion of this process, the insurance company (either your own insurance company or the insurance company of the at-fault driver) will offer you a settlement for damages. You have the right to accept or reject a settlement offer.

If you decide to file a lawsuit, which you may do if a fair settlement cannot be reached, you must do so within three years of the date of your car accident. If you fail to act within the statute of limitations, you can be permanently barred from recovery.

To help you to file your claim, prove fault, and prove the extent of damages you’ve suffered, it’s wise to work with a car accident attorney. An attorney will know how to investigate your crash, can bring in experts, and will have the staff and resources necessary to build your case and effectively guide you through the process. An attorney can also represent you as you negotiate your claim.
