Wyoming readers know that distracted driving is a problem, and it is one of the most serious public safety concerns facing motorists across the country. Drivers are dealing with more distractions than ever before, and many choose to look at their phones or engage in dangerous behaviors, even if they are aware of the risks. Distracted drivers are significantly more likely to cause an accident and endanger themselves and others.
Being in a car accident can be an upsetting experience, but it can be important to take steps to document what has happened before anything changes or people begin to forget how it occurred. The first step for people in Wyoming should be remaining calm and determining whether anyone needs emergency care.
When Wyoming drivers get into car accidents, police investigators study the crash scene to determine who caused the collision. This is critical information because the at-fault driver could be issued a ticket or sued by injured parties. Meanwhile, insurance companies use the information to determine whether or not to make a settlement offer.
