As a motorist, it is your duty to drive safely. You have rules to follow, and you must do your part to avoid an accident or causing harm to other motorists, passengers, pedestrians, and cyclists.
If you cause an accident because you fail to follow these laws, you could be held liable for the accident and injuries you cause.
For most motorists, driving becomes too routine. It is easy to ignore what you are doing behind the wheel and mindlessly drive from Point A to Point B. When you do this, however, you are increasing the risks of an accident.
Whether you are mindlessly driving to and from work every day, talking on the phone, or speeding to make your next appointment, now is the time to correct these bad habits and become a safer driver.
While you may not have gotten traffic citations, do not allow this fact to lead you to the assumption that you are the world’s safest driver. Instead, consider these five must-do safety tips to improve your skill and ensure you are not falling into the dangerous routine of mindless driving.
If you or a loved one is injured in a motor vehicle accident, you do have rights. When motorists are not paying attention they can cause an accident with resultant serious injuries.
To hold those parties accountable, you need an injury advocate. A Washington, DC accident lawyer helps negotiate with the insurance company, gather evidence, and takes on the tasks associated with filing an injury claim – so that you can focus on recovery.
