During a car accident, loose objects in a car often become projectiles that can hurtle through the air at up to 75 miles per hour. When one of these objects strikes an occupant of the vehicle, severe injuries and even death may result. If you or your loved one has been injured in an auto accident due to a loose object, you may be eligible to recover compensation. An injury lawyer for accidents caused by a loose object in your vehicle in Phoenix, AZ from Zanes Law can help you get it.

A defining characteristic of many car accidents is that one or more vehicles involved come to a sudden stop from whatever speed they were traveling. If you are cruising down the interstate at 70 or 75 miles per hour and hit another vehicle or a stationary object, your car stops or slows down rapidly.
A sudden stop can cause severe injuries on its own. Making matters worse is the fact that any loose objects in your car lack the braking mechanism of your vehicle. So while your car stops, the loose objects continue to move at the same speed. They effectively turn into missiles that fly through the air and do not stop until another object stops them.
If you are lucky, that other object is your windshield, dashboard, or steering wheel. If you are not as lucky, that other object is you or another occupant of your vehicle. This is a dangerous phenomenon, and the Federal Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) advises securing loose objects to prevent injury in their Guidelines for Employers to Reduce Motor Vehicle Crashes.
Small items that seem harmless can be capable of causing substantial injury when turned into flying projectiles in a car accident. We have helped clients injured in car accidents by the following loose objects and more:
This list is far from exhaustive, as the number of loose objects that have the potential to injure drivers or passengers in a car accident is substantial.

One of the most challenging tasks after a car accident injury caused by a loose object is dealing with the insurance company. There is a good chance they will try to deny or reduce your bodily injury claim, citing the fact that the flying object, and not the collision itself, was the result of your injury. We have seen this happen with many clients, and we have fought and recovered fair compensation for those clients.
Before you agree to speak with an insurance representative about your accident, you should make sure you have a qualified injury lawyer for accidents caused by a loose object in your vehicle in Phoenix, AZ on your side. Insurance companies often take statements that accident victims make in the days following a collision and use those statements against them to reduce or deny their claim. Our attorneys will deal with the insurance company on your behalf and make sure nothing gets said that compromises your claim value.
In many cases, a loose object injures a driver or passenger because another driver’s negligent actions lead to a collision. In this scenario, we can pursue compensation from the other driver and their insurance company even if a loose object inside your vehicle was the ultimate cause of your injuries.
Zanes Law has a dedicated investigative staff that will gather evidence (photos, videos, eyewitness statements, accident reports from the Phoenix Police Department, etc.) and build a compelling case against the other driver. We will go after their insurance company and see to it that you get compensated fairly.
