In his new book “There are No Accidents, Only Collisions,” longtime Arkansas car accident and personal injury attorney Alan LeVar outlines many things that drivers should know with regards to sharing the road with big rigs and tractor-trailers.
But the book also includes some useful tidbits about what to do if you’re in a car accident or a motorcycle accident.
Here are three details from the scene of your Arkansas car accident that attorney Alan LeVar says you’ll want to take note of:
- Driver fatigue. Take note of whether the other driver was on a very long trip, and whether or not that driver exhibited signs of extreme fatigue.
- Driver distraction. Pay attention to whether or not the other driver might have been on the telephone or experienced another type of distraction that can cause an accident.
- Driver history. If your vehicle, or the other drivers vehicle experienced a malfunction, you’ll want to help attorneys establish this in court. You’ll also want to know how many accidents the other driver has had in the past, which means getting detailed contact information for the driver and his/her insurance agent.
In most cases, the best way to insure that all of this type of information is collected at the accident scene is to make sure that you immediately alert local authorities, keep a copy of the officer’s accident report, and quickly contact an Arkansas car accident attorney.
