An estimated 90 percent of a driver’s reactions are based on visual information. Knowing this, it is no wonder that nighttime driving is one of the leading contributing factors in auto accidents. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, while there is 60 percent less traffic at night, 40 percent of fatal car accidents occur after the sun has gone down.
If you have been injured in a nighttime car accident, you need an experienced lawyer on your side to make sure you receive the compensation you are entitled to.
Many nighttime car accidents are caused by the actions of a single driver. This may include distraction, drug or alcohol use, or other types of negligent behavior. However, some nighttime accidents may be caused by roadway defects that were not seen due to poor lighting or similarly complex issues.
The only way to get proper compensation following a nighttime car accident is by identifying its cause. The only way to identify the cause of an accident is with a thorough investigation performed by an experienced car accident lawyer.
