Investigating the cause of an auto accident takes meticulous evaluation of all the details surrounding your crash. Depending on the nature of your accident, an auto accident lawyer at Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy may have to consult local officials or special investigators to properly investigate your accident.
Accidents result from a variety of causes, including:
- Alcohol and Drugs
Driving under the influence is one of the leading causes of auto accident-related fatalities and injuries. If someone’s negligent actions led to your or your loved one’s accident, we have years of experience and will consult professional toxicologists who can determine if alcohol and drugs were responsible for your crash.
Though driving above the speed limit by a few miles per hour doesn’t seem that dangerous, often speeding motorists lose control of their vehicles and cause serious accidents. If you were the victim of a speeding-related crash, our investigation team will work to prove how speed was a factor in your accident.
- Distracted Driving
Texting while driving isn’t the only form of distracted driving. Something as simple as changing the radio station can divert a driver’s attention long enough that he causes a devastating crash. As your car accident lawyer, it’s our job to hold distracted drivers accountable by breaking down the events that led to your accident.
- Defective Products
Whether your injuries are the result of a faulty seatbelt or a poorly made car tire, you don’t have to face the product manufacturer alone. It’s our job to know the facts. That’s why our auto accident attorneys will not only investigate the details of your accident, we’ll investigate other accidents caused by the product.
In order to conduct a thorough and successful investigation of your case, it’s imperative that our accident investigation team visits the scene of the accident immediately. In a matter of a couple of days, critical evidence can be disrupted. That’s why it’s crucial that you contact a lawyer as soon as possible after your crash.
Once you’ve called Nurenberg Paris, our investigation team will visit the accident scene to:
- take photographs or videos of any evidence that could help your case, such as skid marks, debris, and more.
- document facts about the accident scene, such as traffic signal cycles, flow, and patterns; lane configurations; and any visual obstructions at the intersection, such as trees or shrubbery.
