The other driver’s insurance company does not owe you a duty of good faith and fair dealing in handling your claim. The insurance company is not looking out for your best interest. Insurance companies employ adjusters and lawyers to minimize their payouts from “at fault” accidents caused by negligent drivers.

Five Negligent Acts that Cause Car Wrecks and Injuries
Negligent drivers cause serious car crash injuries and car accident deaths. Texting while driving, other distracted driving, and drunk driving are among the leading causes of car collisions that cause serious injuries or deaths. These negligent behaviors cause the most car wrecks:
- Texting while driving or other distracted driving
- Impaired driving: Drunk driving, drowsy driving, driving while on medication
- Disregarding traffic controls: running red lights and stop signs, making illegal turns, ignoring yield signs
- Aggressive Driving: Failure to yield the right of way, Frequent or unsafe lane changes, Failure to signal, Tailgating

Bad brakes, worn or underinflated tires, and steering or suspension system failure can all cause a driver to crash. If you are injured because someone else failed to maintian his vehicle to meet safety standards, you have the right to get money to compensate you for your losses.
