Accident Caused by Unsafe Lane Change
Have you been involved in an accident that was caused by a driver changing lanes in an unsafe manner? On the road, we should always give our full attention to driving, or the consequences can be serious. We may give our full attention to the road, but that does not mean that other drivers will pay attention. Driving while distracted can lead to poor decisions that could have disastrous consequences. Unsafe lane changes fall under this category.
An unsafe lane change can be defined as the act of a driver moving from their lane into another lane without using a signal of any kind. Many factors can contribute to an unsafe lane change accident. The most common factors include speeding, driving while distracted, and rushing to get through traffic. Another common unsafe lane change is caused by not checking blind spots before the attempted lane change. A driver may also make an unsafe lane change if they are swerving to avoid an animal or debris in the road.
What To Do After a Crash in Fort Worth
If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident in the Fort Worth area that included an unsafe lane change by the other driver, you may need the assistance of an experienced lawyer. Unsafe lane change accidents can often be complex. It can be unclear who is at fault in an accident, so it is very important that you act quickly to preserve evidence.
If possible, take photos of the damage to your vehicle and and the vehicle of the other driver. If any injuries were the result of the accident, see a medical professional as quickly as possible. Sometimes, back and neck injuries do not appear right away. Many insurance companies will try to reduce the amount that you receive on your claim if you wait too long to receive medical attention.
An experienced Fort Worth car accident attorney will deal directly with the insurance company and other party to help you get the compensation that you deserve. Compensation for your injuries, damage to your car, and lost time from work should be paid for by the party at fault. Many times, insurance companies will pressure you to settle fast for an unfairly low amount. Don’t let this happen to you!
