Tragically, nearly 6 million car accidents occur in the US every year. Car wrecks are the most common type of accident involved in personal injury cases. Car accidents have the potential to be especially devastating. Injuries can range from soft tissue injuries to disfigurement to the loss of limbs or even death. A careless mistake or deliberate behavior of another driver is all it takes to cause a car crash. If you’re a pedestrian, motorcyclist or anyone sharing the road; you could find yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time.
It’s Easy to Become an Accident Victim
Accidents can happen to literally anyone, but children and the elderly are at greatest risk of serious injury. We’re hearing more about pedestrian accidents and pedestrian deaths in the news lately. The operator of an automobile who chooses to drive under the influence is a hazard to themselves and others. Driving distracted by a cell phone, poses another high risk situation. Commuters, bikers, or pedestrians who drive attempt to cross that same road could become unwilling victims. Slips and trips are a different type of accident, but also frequently reported. They happen quickly, unannounced and unexpected. Injuries related to slips and falls can be as simple as a bruise or devastating when they cause death. Slip and fall liability accidents are the second leading cause of death in the U.S. after car accidents. In any event, severe accidents have the potential of causing long term injuries, loss of wages, property damage to property, and psychological harm.
Accidents Aren’t Planned
They wouldn’t be called “accidents” if there were planned. One decision, one event, one reaction, or one day can change everything. We understand that no amount of compensation can may completely alleviate your pain, suffering, or loss. An accident that causes the death of a beloved family member is unimaginable, and sadly, we can’t bring them back. What a good accident lawyer can do, however, is to fight for justice against the party or parties responsible. With a liability accident; or when another driver’s negligence or recklessness causes injury or death, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. Unplanned legal fees shouldn’t add to the stress you are already dealing with.
