Now, you’re never going to get in a car accident and be in a good mood about it. If someone else caused the crash, you’re almost guaranteed to be frustrated. You could be on the way to the hospital, you may need a new car entirely, or, at the very least, your plans for the day could be ruined.
However, there are some accidents that are more frustrating than others. For example:
— A chain-reaction wreck at a light.
You’re stopped in traffic when someone runs into the car three vehicles behind you. They rear-end that vehicle hard enough that all of the other cars bounce into each other, and suddenly you’re involved in an accident you had no control over.
— A crash with a driver who ignores the weather.
It’s one thing to go 70 mph in good weather, but you usually slow down in heavy rain, fog or the occasional Texas snow. However, there’s often someone who ignores the weather and drives on like normal, going way too fast for conditions and causing an accident.
— A wreck without a turn signal or a blinker.
Some people just drive all over the road like there’s no one else on it, even if it’s rush hour. They don’t check their mirrors, which is bad enough, but they also don’t signal so that at least one person knows what’s going on. These are some of the most basic parts of driving a car, and being hit by someone who ignores them is infuriating.
After the crash, no matter how it happened, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Put all of that energy from being frustrated into learning more about your legal options.
