How to Avoid Car Accidents
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This old saying is still true today.
An important step to accident prevention is to know the accident statistics in your area and understand the metrics behind them. Car accidents happen for a variety of reasons, however, there are some reoccurring features of a majority of them.
Tips to avoid common car crashes include:
- Always keep a safe distance from other cars. Leave ample space between your vehicle and the one in front, especially on bad weather days.
- Avoid distractions whenever possible by finishing eating, drinking, making important phone calls, sending texts, grooming, setting up your GPS, and other tasks before starting your vehicle.
- Keep a close eye on your route and note any hazards during specific time periods of travel.
- Never drive when exhausted or under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
- Pay attention to the traffic in your area.
If these incidents repeat often, you can avoid the areas and periods of time with a higher incident rate. For example, lunch hour traffic is high. As people are hurrying to and from lunch during work hours, they tend to rush and pay less attention, resulting in unnecessary accidents. Knowing this, you can be more mindful during these periods and, hopefully, avoid having an accident.

Injuries add an additional complexity to car crash cases. Regardless of how you feel after a crash, it is imperative to seek medical attention.

Plus, having a record of seeking medical attention on file will support your car accident claim.

We will obtain the necessary documents to prove your claim, injuries, and damages. Having the right documents and evidence is vital to successfully resolving a car accident case.

Damages Available in a Car Accident Claim
In many cases, the victim of an accident is unable to work due to their injuries and incurred high medical bills without the financial ability to pay them.
Fortunately, car accident victims are typically entitled to the following damages:
- Medical expenses (past, present, and future)
- Lost wages or loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Other expenses related to the accident
The situation is further complicated by complex Arizona insurance and lien laws favoring insurance companies, hospitals and doctors providing the medical care. Insurance companies are in the business to make money and will make every effort to pay victims of motor vehicle accidents as little as possible. So, knowing how to determine pain and suffering damages in the state of Arizona is important.
