Car Accident Cases We Handle

At Simeone & Miller, LLP we handle a variety of car accident cases involving different types of accidents and injuries, including:

What Are the Leading Causes of Car Crashes in Washington DC?

Alcohol/Drug Related Crashes. Driving while under the influence of intoxicants is one of the most significant causes of traffic collisions. Alcohol and drugs can impair judgment, attention, and reflexes – three categories of human coordination that are crucial for avoiding accidents.

Driver Inattention. Texting, putting on makeup, and even using your GPS can contribute to auto accidents. According to the Washington DC DOT, distracted driving is the leading cause of non-fatal car accidents. Human reflexes are incapable of avoiding danger at certain car speeds. From the moment the human brain identifies a road obstacle to the time it takes to stop the car, a vehicle can still travel hundreds of feet at highway speeds.

Weather Conditions. While 79% of traffic collisions occur in connection with dry weather conditions, 14% of total traffic collisions in DC from 2013-2015 occurred on wet road conditions. Slippery road conditions can make controlling your vehicle difficult. As a result, speeds that are ordinarily safe during dry conditions can become dangerous during rainy weather and foggy conditions.

Lighting Conditions. Lighting conditions in Washington DC can vary, depending on whether you’re in a residential part of the city or a well-developed, well-lit one. Most auto accidents occurred on roads where streetlights were turned off.

Traffic Congestion. Most car accidents in Washington DC occur in medium or light traffic conditions, when there isn’t enough congestion to force drivers to slow down. Weaving in and out of traffic can be dangerous. When you combine high speed and an increased number of vehicles on the road, it makes sense why most traffic conditions occur in medium traffic conditions.

Should I Call My Insurance Company or the Other Driver’s Insurance Provider?

We do not recommend contacting your insurance company without being represented by your attorney. Insurance companies do not have a legal obligation to put your interests before theirs, whereas attorneys have a fiduciary responsibility to their clients.

Insurance companies have a contractual obligation to cover your claim in good faith. But, ultimately, the insurance company will simply find the most commercially viable resolution to your complaint, with little regard to your legal rights. Recorded statements to insurance adjusters can be used against you. You should only discuss your case with your attorneys, doctors, and law enforcement officers.

    What Should I Do After a Car Accident?

    First, if you or your passengers have been injured in a car accident, your health and safety are of paramount importance. You should immediately call 911 to seek immediate medical care.

    Even if you aren’t sure if you’ve sustained an injury, you should make an appointment with your doctor within the first few days after a collision. Sometimes major injuries aren’t noticeable for days or even weeks. By confirming your health with a medical professional, you can have a full understanding of your situation and plan the next steps accordingly.

    Second, it is essential never to admit fault or otherwise apologize for an accident, even if you think you were responsible for causing it. Sometimes, a professional evaluation can reveal facts that indicate you were not responsible for the accident. But if you admit fault to the police or the other party, they may use your statements against you later.

    Third, it is important not to move your vehicle after the collision until you are directed to do so by the police, unless you need to do so to avoid injuring yourself or others. It is vital to preserve the conditions of the crash as much as possible to allow law enforcement officers and reconstructionists to make precise assessments, measurements, and records of the collision.

    Finally, make sure you retain an auto accident attorney in DC as soon as possible. When you align yourself with an attorney early on, you’ll stand better chances of having a fully-developed traffic accident case with consistent legal theories and evidentiary interpretations at your disposal.
