Auto Accidents

When you are out and about on the streets, many situations involving motorized vehicles can transform out of the blue into an auto accident. You can even be involved in one without the need to operate any motorized vehicle at all. For instance, if you are a pedestrian walking on the street who is hit by a vehicle, or if you are a passenger on a bus that crashes.


Many of these scenarios can result in diverse injuries that become the foundational bases for legitimate claims in terms of economic compensation. Have you been involved in an auto accident? Have you or any loved ones got hurt in one? Has your property been involved and consequently damaged in one? If so, Ganim Legal P.C. is the law firm that looks after you, your property, and your closest people. Here you can find the different services we gladly provide to our clients.


What Is an Auto Accident?

In simple terms, an auto accident is any form of collision that involves a motorized vehicle. The vehicle in question does not necessarily only have to collide with another vehicle to be considered an auto accident. Pedestrians, animals, and other objects such as buildings can actively be involved in an auto accident.


Auto accidents are quite common for being the generators of property damages, injuries, and in severe cases, permanent disabilities or even death.


Whenever you are involved in an auto accident of any form, it is highly advisable that you hire the services of a firm that can deal with the legal outcomes that entail one. We are Ganim Legal P.C., the firm that aids you in all things auto-accident-related.


What Common Types of Auto Accidents May You Be Involved in?

Distracted Driving


These accidents are mostly caused by visual distractions—i.e., taking your eyes off the road—cognitive distractions—i.e., daydreaming, etc.—or manual distractions—i.e., taking your hands off the steering wheel for diverse reasons different from driving.


These accidents jeopardize the lives of everyone involved. From billboards to text messages, the distractions while driving are endless, and so are the possible consequences.


Drowsy Driving


When a person is sleep-deprived, fatigued, or simply tired, their reaction times slow down, and their driving skills diminish—at the very least momentarily—under these circumstances. In fact, the effects of drowsiness on the human body are akin to those of drugs in terms of reactions.


If you have been involved in an accident because of a person who was drowsy at the moment of the happening, even without having been under the influence of drugs, you have a right to claim compensation had you suffered direct negative repercussions because of your unfortunate involvement.


Poor Weather Conditions


When a person is driving under unfavorable weather conditions, the likelihood of auto accidents dramatically increases. It can be rain, snow, fog, ice, or even wind. Any sort of negligent driving can potentially wreak havoc under the slightest presence of these factors. From refusing to slow down to simply not even utilizing blinking lights, auto accidents under poor weather conditions are a reality.


When you are on the receiving end of a collision due to another individual’s inability to drive safely, you are entitled to be compensated accordingly as well.


Speeding and Aggressive Driving


When speeding and aggressive driving are present, there is an evident breach of duty. When we are driving on the street, we must abide by a duty of care. This means that we must try our best to operate our vehicles as carefully as we possibly can and obey all rules at all times.


When you face a situation of aggressive driving, the chances of receiving life-changing—or even life-threatening—injuries augments ostensibly. When your safety is compromised, it is your duty to call us at Ganim Legal P.C.


Drunk Driving


Driving while intoxicated causes scores of deaths at a national—and even worldwide—level every year. Alcohol and other drugs impair coordination, alter visual function, and generally reduce perception.


While this is absolutely avoidable, some people still decide not to comply with their civic duty and put others at great risk. If you have been involved in a drunk driving accident, at Ganim Legal P.C. we can offer a helping hand.
