Know your options in the wake of a car accident

It may not seem like it when you look back on some memorable times that you have driven down the freeway and seen some less-than-responsible drivers sharing the road with you, but, in fact, every driver does have a responsibility to operate his or her vehicle safely and to ensure that others out on the road with them are safe too. Reckless driving -- in all of its forms -- can be the cause of a civil or criminal case against the reckless driver.

Car accidents have an unfortunate tendency to be very serious. People can suffer severe injuries, lose limbs, be dealt traumatic brain injuries or, in the worst cases, suffer catastrophic or fatal harm.

But even in the minor car accidents, there can be truly debilitating injuries that creep up on people. For example, neck injuries or concussions may not be immediately apparent to the victims, and yet they can have an incredibly detrimental impact on a person's ability to function normally.

No matter what type of accident you are in, you will want answers. That may be a tough ask in the days and weeks that follow the wreck, simply because an official word from the police may take some time. Investigations usually take longer than you expect -- but once they are complete, they can contain critical information that allows you to move forward with legal action against any negligent or reckless drivers.

Should you move forward with legal action, you will need an attorney by your side. At Drivon, Turner & Waters, we have the experience and knowledge of the law to help you in your quest for justice after an unfortunate car accident.
