Unfortunately, highway accidents are a fact of life and sometimes they are completely unavoidable. Being aware of your surroundings and of what the most common causes of accidents are can help improve your chances of not being involved in a highway accident. As safe of a driver as you may be, it simply isn’t possible to account for the numerous other drivers around you. Unforeseen road hazards, inclement weather, and distracted driving are also all factors that can lead to even the most well-intentioned of drivers being involved in a collision. Defensive driving is the best weapon against automobile crashes. If you should happen to be involved in an accident on the highway that results in some form of injury, it is important that you contact a qualified attorney as soon as you are able. If you chose to go it alone you are leaving yourself vulnerable to the attacks and ploys of the other driver’s insurance carrier. Insurance adjusters are pros when it comes to getting people to accept clearly unfair settlements or to sign away a portion of their rights.
