Little Rock Failure to Maintain Lane Accidents
Motor Vehicle Collision Lawyers Advocating for Victims in Little Rock
When it comes to the safety of other drivers on the road, maintaining one’s lane while driving is of the utmost importance. Unfortunately, many drivers fail to maintain their lanes by weaving in and out of the lines of their lanes. Such action is extremely dangerous as one weave outside of one’s lane could result in a collision with another motor vehicle, whose driver and passengers may suffer serious injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured in a failure to maintain lane accident caused by another driver, the Little Rock car accident attorneys at Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz may be able to assist you in recovering damages for your injuries and losses. Our firm is a large regional personal injury law firm that is comprised of more than 30 lawyers and over 120 staff members. We have been fighting for people injured across the South for more than 30 years, recovering over $1.5 billion in compensation on their behalf during that time.
Obtaining Compensation for Failure to Maintain Lane Accidents
In a failure to maintain lane accident, you can suffer common injuries that victims sustain in car accidents, including spinal cord injuries, skull fractures, whiplash, lacerations, broken bones, and head trauma. If your injuries are severe, you may be rushed to a nearby hospital like Baptist Health Medical Center-Little Rock, which is located at 9601 Baptist Health Drive, Little Rock, AR 72205. Before you know it, your injuries can quickly become a financial burden. To compensate you for your monetary losses, such as medical bills and lost wages, you may be awarded economic damages.
In order to recover economic damages as well as non-economic damages (such as pain and suffering), you must establish the other driver’s negligence, which can range from driving while fatigued or distracted driving to drunk driving or reckless driving. Establishing negligence requires you to show that the defendant owed you a duty of reasonable care and breached said duty, which resulted in you sustaining injuries. In an effort to avoid responsibility, the defendant may accuse you of contributing to getting hit. Under Arkansas law, your recovery can be reduced in accordance with the doctrine of modified comparative negligence if you are found to bear a portion of fault by a jury. Hiring a skilled car accident lawyer in the Little Rock area would give you ammunition to diffuse unfounded claims of you being at fault.
Now, here is an example of a collision caused by a driver’s failure to maintain their lane: Let us say that you are driving on Interstate 630 near the Little Rock Zoo, located at 1 Zoo Drive, Little Rock, AR 72205. One of the vehicles in an adjacent lane to you is slightly drifting in and out of its lane. Unbeknownst to you, the driver of the aforementioned vehicle is falling asleep at the wheel. Within moments, the driver is asleep and loses control of their vehicle, resulting in a collision with your vehicle.
