Proving Negligence in Your Auto Accident

Call Don Strickland, Skilled Durham Car Accident Attorney

When operating a motor vehicle on a public road, drivers are compelled by law to give reasonable care so as to not endanger the health or property of anyone else who may be on the road with them. When this care is not given and a collision occurs, that driver may be subject to claims of negligence.

If you have recently been in a car accident, truck accident, or another motor vehicle accident, and believe it may be the result of negligent actions on the part of another driver, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages, including medical treatment, full repair or replacement of your vehicle, rehabilitation, and more. Don Strickland can help you with your claim and get you the award you deserve.

If you need legal assistance with your car accident claim, call Don Strickland at (919) 701-8132.

What could be considered negligence behind the wheel?

Traffic laws place the responsibility of maintaining safety on the road in the hands of those of us behind the wheel. Failing to meet these responsibilities can constitute negligence and, unfortunately, giving these duties our full, undivided attention can be difficult for some drivers.

Negligence while driving can include:

  • Excessive speeding or reckless driving
  • Losing control of the vehicle
  • Not maintaining proper following distance (tailgating)
  • Not properly maintaining your car (i.e. failing to replace things like tires or brakes when worn)
  • Texting
  • Fatigue
  • Being distracted

If you have recently been involved in a car accident, and you believe these or any other factors of negligence could have been at play, you need an experienced Durham car accident lawyer on your side. Don Strickland's work has garnered AV® Ratings by Martindale-Hubbell® and inclusion in the North Carolina Super Lawyers list. With over 34 years of legal practice experience, he knows what it takes to aggressively fight for what his clients deserve.
