What are the common causes of Fargo car accidents?

At Larson Law, our Fargo car accident attorneys immediately work to show why the collision happened. Some of the causes of serious and deadly car accidents in North Dakota include:

  • Driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs. Drivers who are drunk or use drugs should never drive. They cannot control their car, and drivers around them cannot drive defensively. There’s no excuse for drunk or drugged driving in Fargo.
  • Driving while distracted. Drivers should have their eyes on the ride, hands on the wheel, and mind on traffic at all times. Distracted driving includes texting, talking on a cell phone, drinking, eating, and looking at electronic devices.
  • Driver fatigue. Drivers who become tired while driving should get off the road and rest or sleep until they’re focused enough to drive again. Alcohol, lack of sleep, and medications are some of the controllable reasons why drivers operate their cars while tired.
  • Speeding and driving too fast for conditions. Our Fargo car accident lawyers are skilled at showing drivers failed to obey the speed limits, drove too fast for traffic conditions, or drove too fast for weather conditions such as snowy roads.
  • Traffic violations. Drivers who drive through traffic signals, fail to yield, tailgate, drive recklessly, or violate other traffic laws should be held accountable for any accidents they cause.

We work to show other acts of driver negligence, such as passing improperly or merging improperly, may have also caused your accident.

Can non-drivers be held accountable for Fargo car accidents?

Yes. Larson Law P.C also files Fargo car accident claims against:

  • The manufacturers, distributors, and sellers of defective car parts, including parts that were defectively designed, made defectively, failed to have proper instructions, or failed to have proper warnings.
  • The sellers of alcohol, if the person served was visibly intoxicated or a minor at the time of the sale, and the alcohol caused a Fargo car accident. Social hosts who serve alcohol may also be liable.
  • The North Dakota Department of Transportation or other governmental entities if the road where the accident happened was improperly designed or maintained.

How much is my Fargo car accident claim worth?

Fargo car accident victims have the right to be compensated for any financial or personal damages that make their lives different than they were before the accident occurred. At Larson Law, we demand compensation for all your current and future damages, including all your:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income and lost benefits
  • Pain and suffering
  • Scarring and disfigurement

We seek compensation for your injuries from the liability insurance carriers of the defendants. If these defendants do not have insurance or do not have enough insurance, we explain how you can seek compensation from your own underinsured/underinsured (UM/UIM) carrier.

How much time do I have to file a car accident claim in North Dakota?

The statute of limitations for car accident claims is generally six years, though the statute of limitations for wrongful death claims is just two years.
