El Paso is a busy, bustling city with over half a million residents. Many of those residents have to drive across town on a daily basis to simply get to work or school. Traffic jams, construction, and distracted driving can lead to car accidents. Even the most attentive drivers can find themselves on the wrong side of a crash. All it takes is a second of distraction for things to go wrong. Since Texas is a “fault” car insurance state, drivers may file insurance claim or lawsuits against the driver who was at fault. This holds drivers liable for damages and injuries caused in the car accident. Even if you have liability insurance, you can still be sued if expenses are beyond the minimum covered by the insurance. If you require legal assistance, Sergio Coronado Law is ready to help.
Now, more than ever, El Paso drivers are surrounded by near-constant distractions. This is especially true in the driver’s seat. Distractions on the road, inside the car, and within the mind of the driver constantly create dangerous situations. The following are some common causes of car accidents:
Whether it's a simple fender bender or a more drastic accident, it’s always necessary to contact the police. Find out if the other driver is safe or injured and ask for an ambulance if necessary. Gather images of the damage and exchange information with the other driver. Once the police arrive, they’ll write up a report of what happened in the accident. It’s necessary to keep your comments as restricted as possible. Only speak about the facts of the situation. Once the police have completed their accident report, ask for a copy. Now that you’ve gathered the necessary information, it’s time to contact your insurance company. If the other driver sues you, it may be highly beneficial for you to reach out to choose Sergio Coronado Law as your car accident defense law firm.
