Car Accident Factors
Help from a Dothan Car Accident Lawyer
There are a number of different factors that can cause car accidents. Sometimes the accident is caused by the negligence of the driver, sometimes it is caused by the vehicle or vehicle part manufacturer and other times it is caused by another party, such as a government entity. Negligent trucking companies can also be responsible for auto accidents, such as when they fail to follow safety protocols.
If you have been injured in a car accident, it is important that you are able to properly identify who and what caused the accident so that you can hold the appropriate party liable for damages. In addition to identifying the cause of the accident, you will also need to be able to prove the cause so that you can receive the full compensation you deserve. At Morris, Cary, Andrews, Talmadge & Driggers, LLC, we have a highly skilled team of Dothan personal injury attorneys who can help you in completing both of these steps.

Proving Your Case & Securing Compensation
By turning to a trained legal professional, you can ensure that all the appropriate avenues are being explored in investigating the cause of your accident. There might be witness statements, video footage, truck driver logs, driving records or other public records that could serve as important evidence in your case.
