What Happens When an Animal Causes Another Driver to Injure You?

By Grant Law Office on August 20, 2022

Wild animals can cause traffic accidents for a variety of reasons. Animals may dart out into the road without warning, suddenly causing drivers to swerve or a brake. Some animals may be attracted to the bright lights and noise of traffic and wander onto the road in search of the source of the commotion. In some areas, animals may be fleeing from wildfires or other natural disasters and crossroads in large numbers, increasing the chances of an accident. Deer and other animals are often active at dawn and dusk when visibility is low, and drivers may have difficulty spotting them.

When Speeding Gets Out of Control

By Grant Law Office on October 21, 2020

But as drivers get older and become more experienced, many choose to push against speed limits or brazenly break the limit altogether. But those speed limits are not just random, arbitrary numbers. They are designed to protect everyone on the road, as any high-speed collision could be absolutely devastating.

How Rear-End Collisions Become Catastrophic

By Grant Law Office on October 14, 2020

Rear-end collisions, sometimes known as “fender benders,” often get the reputation of not being that serious of an accident. T-bones, as in when a car collides with the side of another collision, or head-on accidents are seen as far more serious because they can put the occupants at the immediate risk of suffering a fatal injury. But the same can be said about rear-end collisions. They can be absolutely devastating and, due to their reputation as being mild accidents, the injuries caused by them may be overlooked.
