Car accidents can be a terrifying experience, causing extensive property damage and catastrophic injuries. If you have been hurt due to another driver’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.

Unfortunately, building a strong case is not always easy, which is why having a reputable personal injury attorney in San Antonio, TX, handle your claim is essential when seeking the full amount you are due. Time is of the essence in these cases. Do not wait to contact The Spencer Law Firm by calling (210) 543-0000 for a free consultation with a car accident attorney with over a decade of experience.
Often, car accidents are entirely the fault of the other driver's reckless or negligent actions. Any behavior that limits mental faculties, takes a driver's attention from the road, or ignores set safety rules can result in disastrous consequences.
There are a number of laws preventing the use of phones and other electronic devices while driving, and yet drivers break these regulations constantly. A moment looking down to navigate directions or send a text is one when your eyes are not on the road and your hands are not on the wheel. In that brief moment, an accident can occur that has devastating effects on all involved.
When a driver is lazy or inattentive about basic road rules, sadly it is others sharing the roadway who often pay the price. A driver who does not heed traffic lights or signs may illegally enter an intersection and collide with another vehicle. Failing to properly signal, speeding, following too closely, and making illegal turns are other everyday road violations that end in wreckage and loss.
Driving Under the Influence
Drivers who have consumed alcohol or who are under the influence of drugs are responsible for a large portion of accidents, and often cause significant damage and the untimely death of others. Strong laws prohibit inebriated driving, and a good car accident lawyer can use these regulations to your greatest advantage.
Car Accident Injuries
No two car accidents are alike and injuries that victims sustain are wide-ranging. From minor abrasions to catastrophic injuries, the physical harm that a victim endures will depend on factors such as if seat belts were worn and the speed at impact. Those involved in trucking accidents are particularly susceptible to catastrophic injuries.

Car accident victims should keep in mind that their injuries may not be apparent right away, and may become worse over time. The road to recovery can be a slow and frustrating process that create a number of unforeseen physical, emotional, and financial burdens on the victim and their family. Injuries may mean time off from work and a loss in wages, and decrease in the overall quality of life.

While you do have insurance to help in the unfortunate event of an accident, at the end of the day, insurance agencies are in business to make money. They use a host of tactics to undermine the value of a claim, or to avoid paying them out altogether. In fact, their agents are trained in these tactics and are backed up by an extensive legal team in the event your case goes to litigation.
