Auto Accidents

Every year, thousands of Americans are involved in automobile accidents. Many times these "accidents" result in injuries, property damage/loss and, of course, filing claims with insurance companies. In the best of cases, no one sustains injuries, and you have to deal with the minor annoyance of filing statements and claims with insurance companies.

In the some of the worst cases, you and/or your loved ones sustain injuries, miss work, and rack up the medical bills. Depending on the severity of the accident and injury, you may have to spend ample time in a hospital, miss work, suffer from pain, and possibly even go through rehabilitation. When this happens, you are a victim that has to deal with emotional, physical, and financial stress.

However, most of these "accidents" aren't accidents at all. In fact, many automobile crashes are caused by the negligence of other motorists. More importantly, when a crash was not the fault of you, but rather the other driver(s) involved, you should not be the one held responsible for the cost of damages and injuries.

In fact, the right personal injury attorney can help ease the pain and stress of being involved in a motor vehicle crash by securing the correct amount you are owed. Depending on the circumstance that leads to the crash, you may be able to seek rewards in anything from reimbursed hospital and rehabilitation bills to compensation for your distress.

A rundown on the common compensatory damages involved in personal injury cases:

  • Medical treatment
  • Property loss
  • Income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of employment

The fact of the matter is, a negligent driver is a person who broke the law. He/she got behind the wheel and did not take this responsibility very seriously. If the result ended in your personal injuries, they should be held accountable.

Negligent drivers include those found guilty of:

  • Driving while under the influence of drugs, alcohol, and/or prescription medication
  • Aggressive driving
  • Not following road rules
  • Texting and driving
  • Driving while fatigued
  • Lack of experience behind the wheel
  • Not obeying work zone road rules
  • Driving with distractions

• Not paying attention while behind the wheel

If you have been injured in an automobile crash and believe it was at the fault of negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. Make sure to obtain the right legal counsel to ensure that you win the settlement that you deserve.
