Car accidents are a leading cause of unnecessary deaths and therefore the number one source of personal injury claims in the United States.
The basic reason for such accident is usually because of negligence on the part of one of the drivers involved. When a car accident is caused by a driver’s negligence, people who are taking effect from the accident – those who are harmed – have to compensate for medical expenses, pain and suffering as well as other damages whether they like it or not. Negligence is when a driver being unaware for the surroundings, underestimating the risk of the environment, such as:
- Driving While Distracted
- Taking Lightly on Road Conditions
- Traffic Law Violations
- Equipment Failure
- Driver Error
- Road Design
As a legal matter, a car accident occurs when a passenger car (convertible, sedan or station wagon) is involved in an event or series of events that causes harm, such as property damage, injury and/or death. Frequently, insurance companies handle car accident claims, but these companies only handle the loss of property – and not the personal injury that one is suffered. This is the time when a personal injury lawyer is needed.
The loss of property is nothing in comparison when someone you love getting injured or died. Let us put an example, a family of three – the father, the mother and the child – went together in their car. Then an accident happened. The father who was responsible to make a living for the family, died. And the child was severely injured and need to be hospitalized. The mother is in grief, and at the same time being overwhelmed with hospital bills and more economic hardship to come. She needs to recover some money, to help the child, to support their living.
