A car accident can happen at any time and often close to home. All it takes is one crash or act of neglect on the part of a driver to forever change the lives of other drivers and passengers. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 30,000 fatal crashes occurred in 2012. If you’ve been involved in a wreck, however serious, you may need a personal injury lawyer to help you get what you deserve.
Defensive driving may not be enough as the constant bustle of Texas highways leads to collisions every day. Speeding down I-10, running a red light on Westheimer, or failing to yield at any on-ramp can easily take the life of someone else on the road. When a person is injured or killed through negligence in an auto accident, the party at fault should be held responsible.
Common causes of a car accident include:
- Failure to obey traffic signals or stop lights
- Driving distracted by passengers, makeup, or food
- Texting or using a cell phone while driving
- Reckless driving
- Road rage
- Driving drunk or under the influence of drugs
A car accident can lead to a wide range of injuries, from back or head injuries to broken bones. The speed and location of impact can make a big difference in the severity of injuries. Even low impact collisions can cause a good deal of pain and aggravation for those involved.
A car accident can cause a number of injuries, such as:
- Soft tissue injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Neck injuries
- Spinal injuries
- Broken bones
- Internal injuries
Victims of a car crash may face a variety of losses as a result of the injuries they suffered. Medical bills, lost wages from missed work, and the cost of future medical care, including physical therapy can add up quickly, leaving victims facing mountains debt for an accident that wasn’t their fault. Do not settle for the insurance company’s first offer; be sure that any resolution of your claim compensates you for all of your harms and losses.
