Car Accidents: Overview
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimated auto accidents with serious damage and injury occur at a rate of once every 14 seconds in the United States. Each year, millions of people are left permanently disabled and many rely on the expertise of experienced car accident attorneys to help with recovery.
Car accidents cannot always be avoided by being alert and driving carefully. We all share the road with other drivers, and accidents caused by road conditions or faulty equipment are often beyond our control. However, many car accidents are caused by negligence, so it is imperative that anyone involved in a car accident contact an attorney.
A motor vehicle accident may involve a pedestrian hit and run, a semi-truck accident, a bike-car collision, a bus accident, drunk driving accident or a motorcycle crash. If the traffic accident was caused due to a defective product such as a tire blowout or an air bag malfunction, the case would fall under the law of product liability. Car accidents can result in wrongful death or serious injuries such as catastrophic burns, broken bones, amputation, traumatic brain injury, neck, back, and spinal cord injuries.
Do not accept any claim before you speak with an attorney. Many large insurance companies have adopted settlement policies that encourage their adjusters to offer quick payments to persons involved in an accident. Insurance adjusters will contact you or your family shortly after an accident to try to gain your confidence. In doing so, insurance adjusters often try to present themselves as the friend of the injured person or the family of the person who was killed in an accident. The goal of such contact is to settle the case on terms as favorable as possible for the insurance company.
