Why Should You File A Law Suit For Car Crash Injuries

When most people leave the house to make their daily commute, they do not think about the fact that they could be involved in a serious car accident that can change their life forever. However, a car accident occurs every 10 seconds in the United States. A fatal car accident occurs every 15 minutes.

Despite the fact that there have been many campaigns made encouraging people to be safer drivers, many drivers are still negligent. Many people still choose to drive a vehicle after they have been drinking. This is one of the top causes of car accidents. In fact, it is estimated that three out of the 10 fatal car accidents involve alcohol.

People who drive a car after they have been drinking are likely to suffer from a slowed reaction time and impaired judgment. Reckless driving is another one of the top causes of car accidents. Reckless driving is the act of driving without regard for the rules of the road. Driving above the maximum speed limit is an example of reckless driving. Turning without using signals, failing to yield and running a stop sign are other examples of reckless driving.

Many people today also drive while they are distracted, and this leads to thousands of accidents per year. Cell phones are one of the top distractions today. Despite the fact that some places have banned cell phone use while driving, many people today still continue to use them while behind the wheel. People take their eyes off the road while they are dialing a number, answering a call or sending a text message. A person can be involved in an accident even if she is only distracted for a split second.

Defective automobiles and roads can also lead to car accidents. The car manufacturer could be held responsible if the automobile is defective. Government agencies could be held responsible if the roads are defective.

If a car accident results in a catastrophic injury, then a person may not be able to work. He or she may also be left with permanent disabilities. Medical bills and physical therapy are not cheap. People who are out of work may find it nearly impossible to pay their bills. That is why we encourage people to contact our firm if they have been injured in a car accident.
