Car Accident Questions

Cincinnati Car Accident Attorney

Why should I hire a car accident attorney instead of dealing with the insurance company directly?

The insurance companies, even your own insurance company, will try to pay you as little as possible. They use many underhanded tactics to hold on to your money. It only takes a small mistake on your part when dealing with the insurance company, to unintentionally give up your right to full compensation or to do serious damage to your case.

A Cincinnati car accident attorney can protect you from being cheated by the insurance company, by helping you avoid their traps. The mere fact that you have legal representation lets them know you mean business and increases your chance of receiving a larger settlement.

Are car accidents always the fault of one of the drivers involved?

No. Although driver negligence is often the cause of car accidents, there are sometimes other causes which are completely out of drivers’ control.

When a vehicle defect, such as faulty tires or defective brakes, causes an accident your case will typically fall under product liability with the vehicle or parts manufacturer held responsible.

A roadway defect, such as a malfunctioning traffic signal, can cause an accident in which neither driver was at fault. Defective roadway cases are brought against the government entity responsible for the design, construction, or maintenance of the roadway.

What are the common causes of car accidents?

Common causes of car accidents include:

  • Driver negligence
  • Excessive speed
  • Intoxication
  • Distracted driver, including cell phone use and texting
  • Failure to signal
  • Defective vehicle
  • Defective roadway
