Paducah Car Accident Lawyer
Common Causes Of Car Accidents:
- Automobile defects including, but not limited to tire tread separation, seat back collapse, suspension defects, faulty breaks, unstable vehicles that rollover, fire or roof crushing in.
- Negligent drivers who exceed the speed limit, fail to signal properly, talk on the phone or text while driving, fail to pay attention to road conditions, fail to maintain vehicles property, who are suffering from fatigue or who are driving under the influence of alcohol or prescription or illegal drugs, and a number of other negligent behaviors.
- Poorly maintained roads that create hazardous conditions, including missing or defective guardrails, improperly designed roadways, rights-of-ways and bridges, potholes and uneven pavement, insufficient signage, uncovered manholes, unlit road medians, ice, road debris, including oil and gravel.
- Automotive Product Recalls. Domestic and foreign manufacturers must make and sell cars and accessories that are reasonably safe for consumers. The manufacturer is responsible to notify owners of any risks, concerns and recalls. A press release on a company website is not enough. The manufacturer must make every possible effort to locate owners; even owners who have moved, or did not originally register the product correctly.
