Causes of Car Accidents

Hire a Tallahassee Car Accident Lawyer to Prove Your Claim  

When you suffer serious injuries in a car accident that was someone else’s fault, proving the cause of the accident is one of the first steps toward recovering just compensation. This requires a thorough investigation conducted by an experienced Tallahassee car accident lawyer.

Our lawyers can get to work on your case immediately. When you contact us, you will speak with a lawyer about your claim one-on-one, and then we will get to work doing what is necessary to prove your legal rights. We will deal with the insurance companies for you, and we will rely on our experience to help make sure you receive the financial compensation you deserve.

We Handle Car Accidents from All Causes in Tallahassee

At Searcy Denney, we handle car accidents from all causes in Tallahassee and the surrounding areas. When you get injured in a car accident, simply knowing that the other driver was at fault isn’t enough. You must be able to prove liability to the insurance companies; and if the insurance companies refuse to settle, you must have evidence that is admissible in court.

In many cases, however, additional factors will be at play. For example, tire blowouts and brake failures are common occurrences in serious car accidents, and defective airbag explosions can lead to accidents as well. Asserting your legal rights requires a clear understanding of all of the factors involved in your car accident, as it will be necessary to file multiple claims in some cases.

With decades of experience representing car accident victims in Tallahassee and throughout Florida, our lawyers handle cases involving:

  • Aggressive driving
  • Airbag defects
  • Brake, tire and other vehicle defects
  • Distracted driving
  • Drowsy driving
  • Drugged driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Failure to stop or yield
  • Inadequate vehicle maintenance
  • Negligent maintenance work
  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding
  • Other forms of driver negligence

Proving the Cause (or Causes) of Your Car Accident in Tallahassee

How do you prove the cause (or causes) of your car accident in Tallahassee? Usually, an on-scene investigation is the first step. It is important that this investigation take place as soon as possible—and this is one of several reasons why you should contact a Tallahassee car accident lawyer promptly.

Along with conducting an on-scene investigation, various additional steps may be necessary as well. For example, we will commonly hire experts to examine the damage to each vehicle involved in the accident. We regularly subpoena drivers’ phone records and vehicle maintenance records as well, and, when accidents involve drivers who are on the clock, we obtain their employment records to prove that their employers are financially responsible. Traffic camera footage, surveillance camera footage, phone photos and videos, and eyewitness testimony can all be key forms of evidence as well.
