How Does A Car Accident Occur?

The causes of an automobile accident in Sacramento, Northern California, or anywhere for that matter, are numerous and varied. In the thirty-year practice of our firm, the Law Offices of Mark A. Doughty has represented cases of this nature that stemmed from the following:

• Negligent or reckless driving

• Intentionally malicious driving

• Driver fatigue

• Alcohol or drug consumption

• Inappropriate use of prescription medication

• Speeding

• Turning improperly or illegally

• Disregard of traffic signs, signals, or road personnel

• Driver distraction

• Passenger behavior

• Mechanical failure or defective vehicle equipment

• Improperly loaded cargo

• Poorly maintained vehicle

• Road or weather conditions

You need a skilled Sacramento automobile accident lawyer

No matter what the cause of your Sacramento automobile accident might be, it is crucial to discuss every aspect of what happened with your attorney. The first reason for this approach is that more parties than you realize may be at fault for what happened. Your automobile accident lawyer can help determine if the incident occurred due to the negligence of a driver, a manufacturer, a mechanic, or even a road maintenance crew.

The second reason to give full details to your legal counsel is because this will help him or her establish grounds for fault. In order to so, it must be shown that the defendants:

• Knew that he or she had a responsibility to keep you safe

• Failed to take actions honoring that responsibility

• Caused your injuries by his or her actions, or lack thereof

No matter the reason for your California automobile accident, you should discuss your case with the Law Offices of Mark A. Doughty. We determine exactly what occurred during the incident that caused your injury or injuries.
