Car Accident Lawyers
Drivers who are stranded on the side of the road are at a higher risk of an accident than they would be while driving. When you’re stranded inside or outside your disabled vehicle, drivers approaching you are likely to be traveling at high speeds, and they may be distracted, careless, or even drunk. Fog, inclement weather or blocked views can also lead to another driver hitting your car or you.
An incident like this leads to the question of who is at fault for a roadside vehicle accident. This is a tricky and complicated situation, which is why you might want to consult with an auto accident lawyer.
