Car, Bike & Pedestrian Crashes

If you or a loved one has been in a serious car crash, there is a lot to know about who may be legally at-fault. Liability can, and often does, go far beyond the driver who hit you.

At Bailey Law Firm we call it car crashes, not accidents. Accident sounds like spilling a drink on the carpet and does not do justice to the violent forces involved in car crashes. Accident also implies unavoidability; we pursue crashes due to negligent, unreasonably careless or reckless conduct. As everyone knows, a car vs. car, bike or pedestrian crash can cause devastating injuries and death. Despite that obvious fact, drivers still engage in unsafe conduct far too often. Driving behaviors that unfortunately commonly result in serious crashes can include: excessive speeding, driving while texting, running a red light or stop sign, erratic lane changes, driving distracted, and driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs (including prescription drugs).

Importantly, liability for car crashes can, and often does, go far beyond the driver involved. For example, if the design or characteristics of the roadway or surrounding areas contributed to the circumstances of the crash, then the applicable municipality/county and/or other third parties may be responsible as well.

If the driver was intoxicated by alcohol consumed at an establishment that is licensed to serve alcohol, then the bar or restaurant may be responsible as well. If the driver was acting in the course and scope of his or her employment (i.e. running a work errand) at the time of the crash, then the employer may be responsible as well.

If you or a loved one has been in a serious car crash, there is a lot to know about who may be legally at-fault. Particularly because a serious car crash may involve dynamics far beyond the driver involved, it is important to consult with a skilled attorney to determine the appropriate legal theories in your case.
