Dallas Car Accident Lawyer
A knowledgeable Dallas car accident lawyer is critical if either you or a member of your family has been involved in a car accident. Car accidents happen all of the time. Fortunately, not all of them are serious. But, sometimes, they are and, if so, they can be life altering.
According to the Association for Safe International Road Travel, approximately 37,000 Americans die in road crashes each year. And, yet another 2.35 million are injured or disabled. As a result, someone who survives a car accident, through no fault of his or her own, may incur significant medical expenses, endure pain and suffering, have permanent disfigurement or disability, and be unable to work or unable to work as much as before the accident. A Dallas car accident lawyer at Braden & Varner can help get you the compensation you deserve.
Often one driver’s actions or loss of control can cause a domino effect of bad results. But, car accidents can be caused by any number of factors. Sometimes accidents are caused by the other driver’s carelessness or inattention. In today’s climate, sometimes that conduct even escalates to risky or aggressive behavior. In many cases, that driver violates the rules governing road use, such as local ordinances and state or federal regulations and law, with that conduct.
In other cases, defective automobile products, such as defective tires, cause accidents. These factors are often out of the control of either driver. Many times, products causing injuries have been subject to a recall. The National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) maintains a current list of automobile related recalls. These recalls may be voluntary or government mandated, but Ideally, consumers become aware of these recalls in order to repair the problem, but that’s not always the case.
And, finally, in the event of a car accident, further injuries can be caused by faulty seatbelts, airbags and child car seats, just to name a few. In some cases, a defective product is a one-time event, due to a manufacturing problem or other glitch in the process. In other cases, it is a basic design defect. And, in others, there may have been a failure to warn of a potential problem. These types of items are also subject to recall, but such recalls are only issues after a defect is discovered (generally after a number of accidents raise the issue) and users of the products are not always made aware of the recall.
