NHTSA Addresses Driver Negligence

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) makes it their business to help reduce negligent driving practices, and those categories of negligent or risky driving they address directly include:

Impaired Driving

Distracted Driving

Excessive Speeding

Drowsy Driving

Let’s take a closer look.

Impaired Driving

The statistics related to impaired driving (impaired by either alcohol or drugs) are sobering, and they include:

There are almost 30 alcohol-related traffic fatalities in the United States every day, which translates to more than 10,000 deaths each year – with an overall cost of about $44 billion a year.

In 2018, there were 10,511 fatal drunk-driving accidents on our roads.

In 2018, a full 29% of all fatal traffic accidents were caused by drunk drivers, which makes drunk driving the most dangerous form of negligent driving.

Driving under the influence of other drugs, such as marijuana and opioids, impairs one’s ability to drive safely, and this impairment affects drivers in ways that are very similar to the effects caused by alcohol impairment.

The dangerous effects of alcohol involve loss of muscle control, a decrease in the ability to focus one’s vision, impaired judgment, relaxed inhibitions, decreased alertness, and loss of physical coordination. All of these are obviously extremely detrimental to safe driving. If you or a loved one has been impacted by an impaired driving accident, contact a Los Angeles car accident lawyer at Kash Legal today.

Distracted driving

Distracted Driving

Distracted drivers put everyone on our roadways at greater risk. Anything that distracts a motorist’s attention away from the road and traffic on the road is a potentially dangerous distraction, and these distractions can come in many forms. Generally, distractions are classified into categories that involve either one’s hands, vision, or thoughts, and texting is considered the worst offender of all for its ability to meld all three forms of distraction into one extremely dangerous practice.

If a text distracts a driver for even five seconds, it translates to driving with one’s eyes off the road for about the length of a football field (at highway speeds) – always a terrible idea. In 2018, distracted driving led to about 400,000 injuries and caused 2,841 fatalities. Contact a Los Angeles car accident attorney to seek compensation for these injuries.

Excessive Speeding

There are speed limits in place on our roadways to help enforce our laws and to help make our roads safer for all of us, but these limits relate to ideal driving conditions and do not take the effects of inclement weather and/or dangerously worn roads into consideration. Motorists are responsible for driving at speeds that are safe in relation to the conditions at hand. Excess speed is second only to drunk driving in terms of dangerous forms of negligence. Consider the following:

In 2017, speed played an instrumental role in 26% of all traffic fatalities.

In 2018, excess speed led to 9,378 traffic fatalities.

Excess speed not only reduces a driver’s ability to control his or her vehicle but also increases his or her stopping distance (in the event of an emergency that can lead to a crash). Furthermore, when motorists take it upon themselves to drive too fast, they increase the severity of any ensuing accidents while they decrease the effectiveness of their vehicle’s safety equipment (such as seatbelts and airbags). Motorists often chalk speeding up to bad traffic and to being in a hurry to get where they need to be, and while we all lead busy lives, there is simply no excuse for speeding dangerously and imperiling the lives of others on the road.


Drowsy Driving

Drowsy driving refers to getting behind the wheel when you’re feeling the effects of too little sleep (or inadequate sleep). In fact, the effects of drowsy driving are similar to those of impaired driving, including diminished performance and cognition. The following statistics highlight the scope of the problem:


From 2013 to 2017, 4,111 traffic fatalities involved drowsy driving.


In 2017, 795 people lost their lives as a result of drowsy driving.


In 2017, drowsy driving led to 91,000 traffic accidents.

Drowsy driving is a serious concern that endangers everyone on our roadways.

If you have been involved in an accident due to a drowsy driver, an experienced car accident lawyer at Kash Legal can help.

What to Do After a Car Accidents in Los Angeles

In Los Angeles, car accidents are not uncommon. It is vital to know the steps to take immediately afterward to protect your rights and ensure your safety, including the following:

Ensure everyone’s safety – First and foremost, check for injuries. If anyone is injured, call 911 immediately. If it is safe, move your vehicle out of traffic to prevent further accidents and hazards.

Exchange information – Exchange insurance and contact information, including names, addresses, phone numbers, and insurance details. Write down the make, model, and license plate numbers of all vehicles involved.

Gather evidence – Document the scene by taking photos or videos. Capture the damage to all vehicles, road conditions, traffic conditions, and any visible injuries. Also, collect contact information from any witnesses.

Contact law enforcement – Report the accident to local law enforcement, as they will create an official report, which can be used as evidence in a car accident claim or lawsuit.

Seek medical attention – Even if you do not believe you are injured, it is still important to get a medical examination, as some injuries may not be immediately apparent. Keep all records of medical appointments, bills, and treatments related to your accident.

Consult a car accident lawyer – If you sustained injuries and damages due to someone else’s negligence, consider consulting a skilled car accident lawyer to help protect your rights. At Kash Legal, we will assess your car accident claim and negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf.

Notify the insurance company – Report the accident to your insurance company as soon as you can, even if you are not at fault.

Focus on recovery – Continue medical treatment and follow your doctor’s recommendations. Keep your car accident lawyer updated on your progress and developments.

A car accident in Los Angeles is a stressful event, but knowing what to do makes a decisive difference in the outcome of your claim and recovering compensation for your injuries. Consulting a car accident lawyer is imperative to navigate the complex aspects of your case.

Do You Need to Hire a Lawyer for Your Car Accidents?

If you have been injured in a car accident caused by negligence, it is in your best interest to retain the legal guidance of a Los Angeles car accident lawyer. Handling your claim on your own greatly risks a successful outcome, as insurance companies often fight tooth and nail to diminish or deny your right to compensation. To ensure you recover the full extent of the damages you are entitled to, the lawyers at Kash Legal will handle all aspects of your case, including the following:

If you cannot reach a settlement agreement outside of the courtroom, your car accident lawyer will seek a lawsuit on your behalf to obtain the outcome you deserve. At Kash Legal, we will fiercely represent you in a trial fight to obtain a judgment on your behalf.

  • Evaluating the full extent of the economic and non-economic damages you suffered to maximize the compensation you can recover
  • Protecting your rights throughout the legal process, especially when dealing with insurance adjusters who may attempt to minimize liability 
  • Gathering evidence to build a strong case in your favor 
  • Communicating with insurance company representatives
  • Representing you in negotiations and depositions

Car Accidents and Damages

If a negligent driver leaves you injured in a car accident, you’ll likely experience significant damages in all of the following classifications:

Medical Costs – The medical expenses associated with car accidents can add up quickly, including the costs of emergency care, surgery and hospitalization, treatment and care from doctors and specialists, prescription medications, ongoing care, adaptive physical devices, home health care, physical therapy, rehabilitation, and more.

Lost Income – A serious injury can leave you unable to work for a significant amount of time, which, in turn, can lead to lost wages. Further, if your injury impedes your ability to continue advancing your career, it can lead to decreased earnings in your future.

Pain and Suffering – Car accidents tend to be sudden, violent accidents that are closely associated with immense physical and emotional pain and suffering, which can be among the most difficult challenges you face.

Working with a personal injury lawyer to seek compensation that addresses your physical, financial, and emotional damages in their entirety is critical to your complete recovery.
