The Need For An Attorney Following An Accident

Car accidents frequently occur in the United States. Not only does an aftermath of a vehicle collision lead to expensive damage to your car, but it can lead to potentially serious and fatal injuries to the driver and their passengers. Sometimes the person responsible for the damages and injuries admits their fault and agrees to pay for the expenses. However, that is not always the case. If you are facing an uphill battle to recover your entitled compensation, the best move to make is to obtain experienced legal representation from a qualified attorney.

Common causes of car accidents include:

  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Poor weather conditions
  • Bad road conditions
  • Tired driving
  • Reckless driving
  • Defective auto parts

Types Of Car Accident Injuries

Based on a study conducted by Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in 2013, 30,057 fatal motor vehicle collisions occurred in the United States that year, which resulted in 32,719 deaths. While common injuries stemming from car crashes include whiplash, seat belt injuries, cuts and bruises, what appear to be minor wounds may have an enduring impact in the long run.

Other types of injuries from car accidents are the following:

  • Broken bones
  • Severe burns
  • Brain and head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
