Drivers have the responsibility of driving with a reasonable amount of care. This means that any person who gets behind the wheel should be sober, abide traffic laws, yield to pedestrians, avoid dangerous distractions, and otherwise exhibit safe driving practices. When a driver fails to exercise care and causes a crash, he or she should be held responsible for the consequences.
Holding Negligent Parties Responsible
Motor vehicle crashes can be caused by more than just driver error. Car manufacturers, property owners, or various other parties may also be responsible for causing a crash. If a car manufacturer produces and sells a defective or otherwise dangerous vehicle, they may be liable for any injuries or damages caused by that defect. Likewise, inadequately maintained roads can lead to dangerous crashes, leaving negligent construction crews or careless property owners liable for the resulting damages. If you were involved in a crash, our firm can use our vast resources to investigate the circumstances of the accident in order to determine who was at fault. At BD&J, we believe in holding the responsible party accountable for their actions for the sake of your safety and well-being.

Car Accident Injuries
Any type of incident involving a motor vehicle can be extremely dangerous and possibly life-threatening. Simple distractions, serious car malfunctions, or any number of other issues can quickly change a simple drive into a terrible disaster. Car accidents commonly cause whiplash injuries, broken bones, contusions, abrasions, concussions, and other serious damages. These injuries can lead to hefty medical bills and lost wages, while more detrimental injuries may require ongoing medical care and could cause drastic changes in your daily life.
