The most common type of personal injury case filed with our courts is an automobile accident.
According to the National Transportation Safety Board, an auto accident occurs every ten seconds in the United States. Statistics show that in 2005 there were 6,000,000 auto accidents in the United States, resulting in 43,443 deaths and 2,699,000 injuries. Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for Americans between the ages of 3 and 33.
Frequently cited causes for auto accidents and car crashes include: inattentive or distracted drivers; drunk driving or drug or alcohol related crashes; and speeding or reckless driving. Other causes of auto accidents include defective products, such as defective tires or brakes, malfunctioning traffic signals, and improper design or maintenance of the roadway.
Personal injuries hurt. And whether suffered as the result of a car accident, falling down poorly maintained stairs or using a defective product, the hurt is more than physical. It often hurts emotionally, and it almost always hurts financially. Who will pay the medical bills? Who will cover the wages you lost because you were unable to work? What about unforeseen expenses? What about your family?
