When a car accident wrecks your life

On Behalf of Christian Ayers

While cars are an everyday part of almost everyone’s life, whether we drive or ride or walk near one, to ever let our guard down in or around one is folly. There are simply too many variables involved in car accidents and the causation behind them.

A common reason for car accidents is distracted driving. People are increasingly mobile, and unfortunately, that means texting while driving. Time and again the temptation has proven to be too great, and people neglect their focus on the road to do things as petty and ridiculous as snapping a selfie.

It only takes one moment of distraction for things to go terribly wrong. How do you ever make sense of the suffering that ensues after something so senseless as children losing their lives because someone responded to a text and subsequently took out a family as well? Or perhaps, a driver snapped a selfie and lost control of his or her vehicle. It is so ridiculously tragic and yet we see the news and public service announcements, and it just keeps happening.

Believe it or not, insurance companies don’t want to pay out. Each insurance company is better served by placing the blame on the other. Anything you say can and will be used against you if there is a way for the insurer to relieve themselves of the obligation to pay for damages and additional expenses.

If you’ve been hurt, or if you’ve lost a loved one in a car accident at the hands of a negligent driver, you won’t ever be able to make sense of the pain. Your best avenue may be to seek remuneration and demonstrate that severe consequences can result from self-serving negligence. Let Charlotte’s car accident attorneys, Ayers, Whitlow & Dressler go to work for you so you can focus on adjusting to life after such a tragedy. Losing a loved one may result in learning to live with the hardships that come with grief, but what your life should not include is any additional financial hardships.
