Common Causes of Car Accidents

Determining what caused a car crash drives the course of any attempt to recover compensation. Once you figure out the cause, you can usually rather quickly identify the at-fault party, which will send you on your way to recovering damages .

Although many factors contribute to a car accident, the most common causes are:

  • Driving while intoxicated or under the influence
  • Mechanical failure
  • Manufacturer malfunction
  • Inclement weather
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Poor road conditions
  • Speeding
  • Driving at excessive speeds for driving conditions
  • Driving while distracted
  • Faulty traffic lights
  • Failure to maintain vehicle
  • Mechanical failure
  • Medical conditions (heart attacks, strokes, falling asleep, etc.)

The Zanes Law car accident lawyers that serve Scottsdale know where to look and whom to ask for evidence about the cause of your car accident.

Gathering the Evidence to Support Your Case

Building your car accident case begins with laying a sturdy foundation of rock-solid evidence. Our team will explore every facet of your incident to unearth all the details and evidence that can support your case.

Our Scottsdale car accident lawyers’ investigative efforts will include:

  • Visiting the scene of the accident to look for trace evidence
  • Documenting the scene (signage, lighting, traffic signals, etc.)
  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Reviewing photos and videos, including any surveillance camera footage
  • Working with accident reconstruction specialists
  • Obtaining police accident reports
  • Gathering medical records
  • Requesting copies of your employment wage statements

Our legal team will do everything from A to Z to paint a clear picture, not only of how your accident happened, but also how it affected you physically, emotionally, and economically.

Establishing That the At-Fault Party’s Negligence Caused Your Car Accident

Once we have determined what caused or contributed to your car accident, we will identify the party from whom we will seek recovery of your damages.

Unfortunately, we cannot simply point a finger and expect money to rain down on you. The law requires that we establish the defendant’s negligence if you are attempting to receive compensation for your injuries.

Your Zanes Law legal team will establish negligence by fulfilling the mandatory tenets that courts expect to see. We will need to prove the following arguments to be true:

  • Duty of Care: The defendant owed you a duty to take reasonable care to keep you from harm and/or injury.
  • Breach of Duty: The defendant violated this duty.
  • Causation: This violation of duty caused the car accident that resulted in your injury.
  • Damages: You sustained damages—physical, emotional, and economic—for which you are seeking recovery.

Once we lock in the defendant with an irrefutable argument of negligence, we stand ready to talk about damages.

Calculating Damages in Your Scottsdale Car Accident

When you seek compensation after a car accident, you can demand far more than your doctor’s fees.

Some of the types of damages you might collect in your car accident case include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Emergency transportation
  • Lost income
  • Lost benefits
  • Replacement services
  • Prescription medicines
  • Physical rehabilitation
  • Diminished future potential earnings
  • Ongoing medical treatment
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Mental anguish

Your Zanes Law legal team will work with experts in the field of economics, medicine, vocational rehabilitation, and life-care planning to provide a realistic estimate of how your injuries will continue to affect you down the road.

Presenting Your Case to the Insurance Company

Our next step is to compile all your losses and their monetary values into a demand letter, which we will send to the defendant’s insurer. Most likely, they will counter with a low-ball offer, and this is where our aggressive negotiating skills come into play.

We will work to negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf. If, however, the adjuster does not cooperate, we will file a personal injury lawsuit in civil court. There we will champion your right to compensation. In many cases, the opposing counsel will call a meeting before trial to negotiate a settlement. Again, we will lead the negotiations to an outcome that will please you.

Statute of Limitations

Keep in mind that Arizona’s statute of limitations gives you a limited amount of time—usually two years–following your accident to take legal action against the defendant.

When you hire Zanes Law to handle your car accident case, we will make sure we handle all the steps in a timely fashion. This ensures you do not miss this window, if we end up going to trial.

Zanes Law is Here to Fight for Your Compensation

When we say we will do everything from A to Z to recover your damages, we mean it. We shall leave no stone unturned in the process, all of which we will handle professionally and compassionately.

We do not charge a fee until and unless you win a settlement  or jury award.
