Vehicle Accidents

According to data collected by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 5.4 million vehicle accidents occurred on American roads in 2010 alone. That’s an average of one accident every six seconds and almost 15,000 accidents each and every day. In those accidents, more than 32,000 people were killed and 2.24 million people injured.

Given these statistics, no matter how safe, experienced, and responsible a driver you are, at some point in your life, you probably will be in a vehicle accident. When it happens, knowing when to contact an attorney specializing in person injury can mean the difference between being stuck paying for your losses out of your own pocket and getting what’s fair and what you deserve.

If you were injured in the vehicle accident and required medical attention, you should immediately contact a personal injury attorney, especially if your injuries were serious. Not only are you due compensation for the costs of the medical care, you also have the right to be fairly compensated for any time you missed at work due to the injury, as well as other damages.

You should also contact a personal injury attorney if, after filing a claim with the insurance company, they are uncooperative or hesitant to cover it. Contrary to what they may say, insurance companies are not there to look after your best interests; their priority is their own financial bottom line. They have teams of in-house attorneys whose job it is to avoid having to pay out on claims. Without proper representation, the insurance companies can try to deny your claim or intimidate you into settling for far less than you deserve. A personal injury attorney can help you in dealing with the insurance companies and ensure that your needs are being fairly represented.

If the other driver in the vehicle accident was uninsured, you might think that there is no way for you to collect compensation for your losses. That’s not true. A personal injury attorney can help you through the process of collecting repayment for your losses, whether that means negotiating a settlement with the other driver, or having to go to court and fight for what you deserve.

Being in a vehicle accident is not something anyone ever wants. But it happens and, when it does, having a personal injury attorney looking out for your best interests can help bring peace of mind and make sure that you are treated fairly and compensated for your losses.
