Victims often have many questions after a car accident. If your accident was caused by another driver’s negligence, they may be liable for the resulting damages. While on the roads, even a seemingly minor act of negligence can cause a major accident and serious injuries. Call the Gutierrez Law Firm to speak to attorneys who are experienced in handling motor vehicle accidents and resulting injuries.
Causes of Car Accidents Can Include:
Additional dangers come with used or rental cars, which often aren’t updated for recall issues that can lead to accidents and injuries.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that 2.4 million people were injured on U.S. roads in 2015. With over 4 million miles of road in the United States according to the Federal Highway Administration, even a fender-bender or other minor incident can cause lasting and serious injuries.
The impact of a wreck can cause a wide range of injuries, including:
These injuries can lead to overwhelming costs, including medical care, lost wages from missed work, and rehabilitation. If you have been seriously injured, insurance companies may offer you a settlement amount to close your claim. This amount may sound like a large amount, but remember that any amount you receive must cover your long and short-term costs. If injuries require lengthy care, such as surgery, medications, physical therapy, or medical equipment like a wheelchair, your costs can quickly add up to more than the offered settlement amount. A vehicle accident lawyer can help you determine what amount will truly cover all of the costs incurred as a result of the other driver’s neglect or after a single vehicle accident that occurred as a result of outside negligene.
