Searching for the Best Car Accident Lawyer Orem Has? 

When you need an Orem personal injury lawyer, Moxie Law Group is here for you. Though nobody wants to be in a position where they’re searching for an Orem personal injury lawyer, Moxie Law Group is dedicated to simplifying the Orem Personal injury lawyer search process. Although it isn’t possible to completely eradicate the need for a personal injury attorney, there are safety tips you can follow to help reduce the likelihood of needing a personal injury attorney. Below are ten things you can do to reduce the chances of being involved in a car accident. 

  1. Don’t Text and Drive

If you’re looking to prevent a fatal car accident, make sure that you don’t text and drive. If, on the other hand, you’re looking to be the reason someone else is searching for a personal injury attorney, texting while driving is a quick way to cause a very serious car accident. And the person you injure due to distracted driving will likely need a personal injury lawyer to help them get adequate compensation for their injuries. Remember, texting while driving is one of the reasons car accident lawyers have so many personal injury cases. You do not need to contribute to the workload of Utah’s car accident lawyers. You can prevent car accidents and save lives by putting your phone in the trunk. 

  1. Let Semi-Trucks In

We know, we know: nobody wants to be stuck behind a semi-truck–especially in rush hour traffic. However, racing around a semi-truck in order to avoid being stuck behind them is extremely dangerous. Some of the most serious car accidents and pile-ups have occurred because someone couldn’t stand the thought of being behind a semi-truck. Compared to passenger vehicles, semi-trucks generally need more time to come to a complete stop. So if a passenger vehicle cuts a semi-truck driver off, the driver may not be able to come to a complete stop in time. If you’re on the road, and you see a semi-truck that needs to merge, let them in if you can do so safely. Even if you hire an amazing personal injury lawyer who gets you a large settlement, the car accident injuries you sustain will not be worth the settlement you receive. 

  1. Drive Defensive

Car accident lawyers know this all too well: there are drivers on the road who just shouldn’t have a license. Those who drive recklessly and aggressively significantly contribute to the workload of Utah’s car accident lawyers. Although it’d be nice to drive in a place where everyone drives in a way that prevents auto accidents, the reality is that there’s almost always someone on the road who’s driving in a way that’s likely to cause an auto accident. Therefore, it’s important that we all take steps to drive defensively. While car accident lawyers can help auto accident victims get the monetary compensation they need to recover, many of those with personal injury claims wish that the vehicle accident never happened in the first place. If you’re looking to avoid car accident lawyers, take precautions to avoid reckless drivers and drive defensively. Though nobody will be able to completely eliminate the need for car accident lawyers, you can take a proactive approach to staying safe. 

  1. Don’t Drive Drunk

When it comes to personal injury cases, nothing infuriates car accident lawyers like seeing injury claims involving drunk drivers. In this day and age, driving under the influence is completely unnecessary due to the invention of Uber. When you drink and drive, not only do you risk answering tough questions from a car accident attorney, you also risk the lives of everyone else on the road. When car accident lawyers handle personal injury cases involving drunk drivers, the injured party generally has extensive medical bills, lost wages, emotional distress, and more. Although our car accident lawyers are are happy to handle personal injury cases caused by drunk drivers, it’s incredibly irksome to know that a completely preventable personal injury claim is being filed due to the irresponsible conduct of the negligent party. 

  1. Obey the Speed Limits

Contrary to what some people believe, driving at excessive speeds isn’t cool; it’s dangerous. Not only does it endanger the life of the driver, it endangers the life of everyone else on the road. Driving over the speed limit is a great way to tell everyone on the road that you don’t care if the other drivers have to file a personal injury claim due to your reckless driving. When you drive at excessive speeds, you have less control over your vehicle. If you need to slow down and stop for any reason, it’s going to be more difficult. Furthermore, posted speed limits are often there for a reason. For example, many neighborhoods have low speed limits since it’s more likely that there will be a pedestrian. You don’t want to cause a pedestrian accident, and you don’t want to be the reason that someone is filing a personal injury claim. Don’t be the person responsible for a car accident case. 

  1. Keep Your Ride Up-To-Date

Orem personal injury attorneys know that it’s important for everyone to properly maintain their vehicles. Make sure all your lights are working: head lights, tail lights, and brake lights. If your brake lights don’t work, someone might not realize that you’re coming to a stop. If your head lights or tail lights don’t work, it may be difficult to see your vehicle at night. Our Orem personal injury attorneys beg you: please don’t neglect your car’s maintenance. It’s also important to make sure that your oil is changed regularly, and your tags are current. Many motor vehicle accidents occur because a person lost control over a poorly maintained vehicle. In other cases, careless drivers have caused accidents because their vehicles weren’t properly maintained. 

  1. Carry Insurance

Though this one doesn’t necessarily prevent accidents, it’s important for everyone to have insurance coverage in case an accident occurs. If you don’t have insurance, and your negligence injures another person, the injured party may have a difficult time getting fair and full compensation. In your average personal injury case, the insurance company is the primary source of recovery. Most people don’t have enough assets to pay for the damages caused by their negligence. When negligent drivers don’t carry insurance, but they injure another person, the injured person may have a hard time paying for their medical expenses or getting financial compensation. This is particularly true if the negligent party doesn’t have enough assets to compensate the injured person. If the negligent person has no insurance, and there’s no other source of recovery, it may not be possible for the injured person to file a personal injury case. If the injured person cannot file a personal injury case, the injured person’s ability to get the financial compensation needed to cover the accident-related medical expenses may be extremely limited. Though it may not prevent a car accident, reviewing your policy with the insurance company can help ensure that fair compensation is readily available if you’re ever the at-fault party in an accident. 

  1. Don’t Drive Drowsy

Orem personal injury lawyers have seen more than their fair share of drowsy driving accidents. If you’re driving late at night and you start to notice signs that you’re getting sleepy, it’s time to find a safe place to pull over and snooze. Depending on where you are, sleeping in your car may not be legal. Make sure you follow all the local ordinances and laws. Blurry vision, confused thinking, and inability to remember the past few miles are all signs that you are too drowsy to drive. Don’t be the reason a person is filing an insurance claim, or taking legal action. Help reduce the number of potential injury victims by refusing to drive drowsy.
