Car Accident/Wrecks Injury Lawsuit Lawyer
Every year millions of people are injured in motor vehicle accidents. Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of injury in the United States for people ages 1-34. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported 37,461 motor vehicle fatalities and an estimated 3,144,000 injured in vehicle crashes in 2016. These are sobering statistics, especially when many of these deaths and injuries cases may have been prevented.
Many vehicle manufacturers have made safety improvements to their vehicles including air bags, rollover bars, reinforced frames, better tires, etc. Additionally, many states have passed tougher drunk driving laws. As a result, many lives may have been spared. However, with an ever-increasing number of vehicles on the road, motor vehicle accidents still occur with alarming frequency. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, every 10 seconds someone in the United States is involved in a car accident, and every 14 minutes someone is killed on the roadways.
Types of Vehicle-Related Accidents
When a vehicle accident occurs that causes an injury or fatality, the victims and their families may face extensive medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering and other damages. While insurance is meant to cover many of these costs, insurance companies also want to pay as little as possible. Those injured in vehicle accidents due to the negligence of another driver deserve to receive compensation for their losses.
