There are approximately 6 million automobile accidents in the United States every year, resulting in 3 million injuries — about 2 million of which are permanent, including paralysis, paraplegia and quadriplegia. Car accidents are responsible for killing over 40,000 people each year.
With numbers like these, you could very well be involved in some kind of auto accident. Whether it is a "fender bender" or one more serious, it is always important to protect yourself.
We recovered $1.75 million and a full waiver of the Medicaid lien for a client who suffered dropped foot after she was involved in a head-on collision with a leased vehicle driven by someone who was intoxicated.
Always be a cautious and courteous driver. Protect yourself by owning automobile insurance. It is estimated that 25 percent of cars on the road are being driven by uninsured drivers.
You May Deserve Compensation
If you are involved in any type of car accident — including a drunk driving collision or a distracted driving crash — you may be eligible to collect compensation from negligent parties. If you have suffered an injury, you should hold the negligent party or parties responsible for injuries, loss of income and medical expenses. Common auto accident injuries include:
- Neck injuries
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
