Causes of Car Accidents
Millions of Americans are injured every year in car accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents. Although many accidents result in only minor injuries, others cause severe brain and spinal cord damage and permanent disabilities. Common causes of car accidents include driver negligence or inattention, a deliberate and reckless disregard for traffic laws, poorly maintained or otherwise damaged roadways, and defects in the design or manufacture of automotive parts.
Many accidents are caused by drivers who do not obey traffic laws or are otherwise negligent. Individuals who drive too fast or who do not heed stop lights, stop signs, and other traffic rules are threats to themselves and to others. Drivers who are drowsy or under the influence of drugs and alcohol can be especially dangerous when they get behind the wheel of a car. More and more accidents are caused by drivers using cell phones and texting or browsing on smartphones, which is illegal.
What Our Clients Say
Scott did a great job from start to finish with my case. Kept me well informed throughout it all. Thanks again!
I was struggling to move forward with a 2 year old case. A couple weeks ago, I decided to call Girdwood & Williams and Scott Girdwood helped me take care of it. His office was friendly, highly professional and made communication very easy. To be honest, I've been burdened with this for a long time, and as anyone who's needed legal services knows, it's not easy. It is such a relief to finally be done. It all happened so quickly and efficiently, I'm in shock. A HUGE thank you to Mr. Girdwood for all his effort and time put toward success. I will solely recommend his law firm to anyone seeking legal counsel from here on out!
Wish it was possible to give more than 5 stars. A few years back I was in a bad car accident. With a lot of bills resulting from this accident I figured it would be smart of me to higher an attorney to represent me. I was referred Scott Girdwood and now I can’t thank him enough for what he did for me. He took on to fight my claim where there were a lot of factors contributing to determining fault. He stood beside my side the whole time and went above and behind keeping me in the loop with what was going on. He also educated me and how the process went so I was more understanding. From day one we new the other persons insurance was going to be a pain to fight. Scott fought three different attorneys and not once backed down. Almost 2 years after the original accident, Scott was able to get us settled outside of court. Once again can’t thank Scott enough for what he did for me!
Several years ago 2 family members and myself were in a horrible accident. Our van was totaled. The law firm who initially represented me was going to end up with more from the settlement than I was, and I was the one injured. They said if they worked all summer they could maybe get 400 to 500 dollars for me. I left them and went with Ben Williams. He was amazing. He got $5,000 dollars more in no time.
Scott Girdwood and Ben Williams are excellent attorneys. There are very knowledgeable of the law and fight hard for their clients when they need it the most. Highly recommended!
This law firm has handled several accidents for my family over the past few years. Ben Williams knows what he is doing and has gone above and beyond for us. Sabrina Ward has been extremely helpful and nice. These two have done everything they could to help us out with each accident, even the small one. I couldn’t be more happy with their work.
I recommend hiring Girdwood & Williams for even your smallest accident to take the stress away.
I strongly recommend using Girdwood and Williams. I got a speeding ticket a few months ago and called Scott Girdwood. I was able to speak with Scott on the phone immediately and he put my mind at ease. I paid him a reasonable fee over the phone and I didn’t even have to go to court! He was able to get my ticket reduced so it didn’t affect my license or my insurance. After my court date, Scott sent me a letter to let me know how everything turned out. He made this ordeal very easy for me and I am very thankful!
When I was hurt on the job, I had concerns whether the giant company I worked for had my best interests in mind, so I contacted Ben Williams. From the beginning, Ben told me what to expect and all the possible outcomes. Knowing that I have a wife and kids, Ben helped me make informed decisions to protect me and my family. When court ruling after court ruling when in my favor, the company I worked for agreed to settle, and I am very happy with the result. I have complete confidence in the professionals at Girdwood & Williams, and I would not hesitate to call on them again if needed.
My experience with Scott and the staff at Girdwood & Williams has been nothing but outstanding! I highly recommend them as they are very knowledgeable and responsive. Thanks again for your help!
Couldn’t ask for better representation. Attorney Girdwood is truly an exceptional lawyer. Will continue to fight for his clients and and best possible outcome. With one phone call he helped fix a situation that was going to cripple me financially. Can’t thank him enough!
