Georgia Personal Injury In Car Accidents Of Unknown Cause
We extend our deepest, heartfelt sympathies to the family of Oluyinka Akinseinde and wish the injured party a quick recovery.
Car accidents range in severity from minor to catastrophic and can be caused by any number of factors most of which are entirely preventable. A recent study lists the top five most common causes of preventable car accidents as speeding, distracted driving/cell phone use, alcohol/drugs, drowsy driving, and teenagers/inexperienced drivers. Car accidents in which a cause cannot be or has yet to be determined can be especially tricky for those injured in the process. Unfortunately, determining which driver was negligent is not always so clear-cut. In a case like this, hiring the proper attorney is going to be vital to the success of your lawsuit.
An attorney will be able to compile accident reports, insurance company documents, police reports, witness statements, and many other legal components that will be essential to building you a strong case. As long as the cause of the accident and which driver was at fault remains unclear, it is going to be a tough row to hoe with the insurance companies and trying to get them to give you the damages to which you are entitled. One of the key factors to a personal injury suit is whether or not the at-fault party has liability insurance that covers the accident. When drivers submit a no-fault claim to their insurance, it drives up their rates. The reason given for this is because insurance companies have reportedly found that those drivers involved in no-fault accidents are more likely to later be involved in at-fault accidents.
If you have been the victim of an accident in which reason, fault, or the at-fault driver (hit and run) cannot be determined, then your legal case just got a whole lot more complicated. We here at the Nye Law Group have a staff of professional attorneys that are able to handle your case. It is crucial that you do not attempt to file suit or attempt to deal with the insurance companies on your own. Remember, the insurance companies are there to protect their losses, not yours.
