If you were involved in a car accident contact Albright, Stoddard, Warnick & Albright.

Many people have already or heard or read about the incident that took the life of beloved “Star Trek” star Anton Yelchin, and of the problems Jeep is having with their Grand Cherokees because of this. While, unfortunately, one can never determine the outcome and completely assure the well-being of passengers, there are many ways that we can minimize the likelihood of a car accident.

One way is to try our best to avoid the “fast” lanes, which are the lanes to the far left, when driving on the highways. When drivers use the center lanes, they have many more options of “escape” should a problem arise where they would be required to switch lanes quickly to avoid collisions.

Another way that drivers can minimize the likelihood of an accident is to keep scanning the area ahead and to beware of blind spots while driving. It is important to not just watch the car in front, but to watch the traffic in front of the other car, as well. Doing this decreases the chance of the driver rear-ending the vehicle in front of them. It is also important to beware of blind spots, because side mirrors and rear-view mirrors can only do so much; drivers must always remember to turn to look directly into the lanes beside them to avoid missing something that escaped the view from the rear-view or the side mirrors.

One final way to minimize the chance of a car crash is to avoid driving at night, and of course this may seem obvious, but it is always important to mention that many studies show that a large amount of car accidents happen when driving late at night, not necessarily because of the driver themselves, but because there are so many factors in play, such as whether or not the driver in front of them is inebriated, whether the headlights are bright enough, and whether or not the roads can be seen clearly.

Of course, as mentioned previously, these are only some ways to minimize the chance of having a car accident. Unexpected events will happen to us all, so it is important to remember to contact a Las Vegas Personal Injury attorney or a Las Vegas Car Accident lawyer in case something as unfortunate as this were to occur, because they will lessen the headaches, pain, and frustration that goes along with the physical injuries of these accidents.
