Auto Accidents

Morgantown Auto Accident Lawyers

After an auto accident your primary concern is trying to recover from your injuries. From there you are probably worried about how you will pay the bills and find an income in the future. The last thing you want to think about is a legal battle. Although the insurance companies should pay you fairly, their goal is to pay as little as possible or completely deny your claim. Our Morgantown auto accident lawyers have worked for the insurance companies. We know their tricks and tactics. We are here to help you beat them.

Investigating Your Auto Accident

You cannot rely on insurance adjusters or law enforcement to thoroughly and properly investigate your accident. The insurance companies will begin investigating right away, with the goal of finding a way to deny you compensation, minimize what they pay or delay paying as long as possible.

That is why it is so important to contact our Morgantown auto accident lawyers immediately after your accident. We are here to protect your right to compensation. We can take over your claim right away so that you do not deal with the insurance company representatives directly and risk making mistakes that can cost you your case.

We will conduct our own investigation to find the cause of your accident and any factors that contributed to the seriousness of your injuries, so that we can pursue maximum compensation for you and your family.

Common Causes of Auto Accidents

Common causes of auto accidents include:

  • Distracted driving, including texting and cell phone use
  • Excessive speed
  • Intoxication
  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Following too closely
  • Failure to signal
  • Unsafe passing
  • Failure to yield
  • Aggressive driving
  • Defective vehicle
  • Defective roadway

Auto Accident Liability

Once we determine the cause of your accident and injuries, we know who can be held financially liable. In most accidents, a negligent driver is to blame, but that it not always the case. Defective vehicles and defective roadways are sometimes the cause of accidents and, in accidents caused by negligent drivers either one can contribute to the seriousness of injuries.

When a defective vehicle is involved, one or more of the following may be held liable:

  • Auto or parts manufacturer
  • New or used car dealership
  • Rental company
  • Repair shop
  • Car hauler

If a roadway defect was involved, the government entity responsible for design, construction, and/or maintenance of the roadway may be held liable, but governmental liability can be very limited.
