Idaho Fender Bender Lawyer
While most people dismiss fender bender accidents as minor or too trivial to even contact the police about, these accidents often cause victims long term injuries. Victims will walk away from fender bender accidents mistakenly believing they are fine and without injury. Days or weeks later, they will unfortunately find the opposite is true.
Fender bender accidents are known for causing chronic injuries, such as whiplash, which can leave victims with persistent pain, sleep loss, and even immobility of the joints and limbs. Injuries such as whiplash are why you should never consider an accident as seemingly minor as a fender bender as trivial, allowing the guilty person who caused the accident to leave the scene without exchanging insurance information. You may need to file an injury claim to recover compensation for your medical bills related to your accident.
Easily the most common type of automobile collision, fender bender accidents can happen when you least expect them. Here are some of the most common fender bender causes our car accident attorneys encounter:
- Drunk driving
- Following too closely to another vehicle
- Backing up while not paying attention
- Texting while driving
- Talking on the phone or to another passenger
- Fatigue or general tiredness
Unlike most other car accidents, most fender benders don’t happen because a driver was speeding. Usually the guilty driver was traveling well below the posted speed limit and was simply not paying attention, meaning negligence is the root cause. If you have been injured in a fender bender, the most important task you will have to obtain just compensation for your injuries and losses is to prove the other driver is liable for the accident. When it comes to fender bender accidents, this may be harder than it seems compared to more serious car accidents.
Should I Hire an Idaho Attorney for My Fender Bender Accident?
As anyone who has been injured in an automobile accident knows, filing an injury claim can quickly become a complicated procedure. Keeping track of all of your medical bills, repairing your damaged vehicle, and haggling with pushy insurance adjusters is a difficult process for even the most motivated of people.
