Motor Vehicle Accidents are Inevitable…but Not Always

Jun 3, 2014 by

There are a lot of cars in the US. Nobody really knows how many as there are quite a few that are not registered, but it is estimated that there are at least 250 million motor vehicles operating on US roads—not all at the same time, though. Nevertheless, that’s a lot of cars. Just going by sheer number, it is inevitable that auto accidents will happen.

According to the website of SC personal injury lawyer Goings Law Firm, LLC, The problem is that in too many cases, car accidents happen because someone was careless, reckless, distracted, or otherwise negligent. According to the latest fatality analysis report from the U.S National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for 2012, a majority of the 33,561 deaths from auto accidents were alcohol-related (31%), and the victims were pedestrians and motorcyclists—they weren’t even in car! Annually, about 2 million people are injured in car accidents, many severe enough to require extensive hospitalization, temporary or permanent disability, prolonged recovery and rehabilitation, and lifelong therapy that exceed most health and medical insurance coverage. It is enough to break the back of the average American.

According to the website of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. in Rhinelander, a serious car crash injury or death affects not only the victim but the family as well. Major adjustments must be made to manage the physical, emotional, and financial burden that result from the death or serious injury of one family member. It is just right if the responsible party had acted negligently that steps should be taken to require the reckless driver to share some of the burden.

If you or an immediate family member suffered serious injury or death because of a reckless, distracted, or impaired driver, find a reliable and experienced personal injury lawyer to address the issue. You need competent legal representation to make sure that your rights under the law are fully protected.
