Auto Accident Cases We Handle
Our Phoenix car accident lawyers have decades of combined experience and are prepared to handle the full range of auto accident cases, including:
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the term "aggressive driving" is used to describe driving behavior that involves a driver making a single maneuver or a combination of moves that endanger the people around them. These acts are not the result of negligence or carelessness, but rather are a purposeful sequence of driving habits that a reasonable person would believe to put people and/or property into harm's way.
A driver who causes an accident by driving recklessly or aggressively can be held accountable. Common examples of aggressive driving include speeding, tailgating, running a red light, violating the right of way, and any form of road rage. After mounting concerns regarding the ramifications of aggressive driving, the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety commissioned a study to track the patterns associated to this type of driving.
From early 1990 to the end of 1996, the study found over 10,000 incidents in which aggressive driving played a role. These cases resulted in over 12,000 people suffering injuries and were fatal for over 200. Similar results were found in a study that was held by the Automobile Association.
With over 500 drivers studied, the conclusions found by the researchers were harrowing. Nine out of ten drivers admitted that they had experienced road rage and six out of ten admitted that they had completely lost their temper. While some people claim that young males with poor education are typically to be blame, it has been found that any gender, any age, any income bracket and any religion can be prone to succumbing to a temper on the road.
Major auto manufacturers frequently issue widespread recalls when there are reports of accidents resulting from design flaws or manufacturing defects. Non-deploying airbags, tire blowouts and SUVs that are prone to rollover are some of the more common examples.
Distracted Driving Accidents
If your accident was caused by a driver who was talking or texting on a cell phone , applying make-up, eating, adjusting the radio or doing anything but focusing on driving, a Phoenix car accident attorney from our firm may be able to help you recover a settlement for your injuries.
Distracted drivers are one of the biggest hazards on the road today, causing thousands of preventable injuries and deaths every year. Distracted driving comes in many forms, but all amount to the same thing: distractions cause drivers to not fully pay attention to the task of driving, and when they are not paying attention, they are less able to react to changing conditions. The result is a preventable car accident that causes someone to get hurt.
Drunk Driving Accidents
Drinking and driving is a crime in Phoenix, but even if the driver who caused your accident is convicted there is no guarantee that you will receive fair compensation for your injuries unless you take legal action. We also handle injury claims involving dram shop liability.
Insurance Bad Faith
Insurance companies sell the peace of mind that comes with knowing you will not be forced to pay the full costs of an accident. If you believe your insurer acted in bad faith towards you by delaying an investigation, unfairly minimizing the value of your claim, or even denying a valid claim, you may have grounds to sue.
All drivers have a legal duty to drive safely on the road and highway. When a person fails to do this by driving negligently or recklessly and consequently causes an accident, he or she can be held responsible for any injuries or property damage that occurs. Car accident victims can recover compensation to cover their current and future medical bills, treatment expenses, lost wages, pain, suffering, and decreased quality of life.
The Phoenix car accident lawyers at Knowles Law Firm, PLC can review your case and help you take the appropriate steps to recover compensation for your injuries.
