Car accident prevention tips: Do your part as a motorist

Personal injury lawyers consult with numerous car accident victims who have suffered catastrophic injuries due to no fault of their own. In many of these cases, the victims can pursue financial compensation in court from the parties who caused their accidents and injuries. However, wouldn't it be better to avoid such accidents and injuries to begin with? Here are a few tips and tricks that motorists can use to avoid getting hurt in an accident:

  • Never use a cellphone while operating a vehicle.This advice seems simple enough. It's also illegal to text while driving in California. Nevertheless, many motorists ignore the law and endanger themselves and others. If you avoid using a cellphone behind the wheel, you will avoid many kinds of crashes.
  • Use your headlights at dusk, dawn and when it's rainy. Headlights will make your vehicle more visible. They are an important safety component during low visibility hours like dusk, dawn and when it's raining outside.
  • Try not to drive at night. It might not be entirely convenient to avoid driving during evening hours. However, if you can manage to limit your driving at night, you will reduce your chances of getting into a crash.
  • Keep your car well-maintained. The better condition your car is in, the better you can use it to avoid and maneuver around potential accident scenarios.
  • Never drive after drinking. It doesn't matter if you just drank half a beer. The best policy is to never get behind the wheel after drinking alcohol. It's difficult to judge your state of inebriation and it's difficult to determine how much you've been affected by the alcohol you consume.

Were you hurt in an accident due to no fault of your own in Cypress? Depending on the circumstances of your injuries and the crash, you might be able to pursue a personal injury claim. Ultimately, it's important to review all of your legal options -- and the viability of your potential lawsuit -- before choosing to file such a claim.
