Each year, more than six million car crashes occur in the United States, in which almost three million people are injured per year at a cost of more than $200 billion in damages. Moreover, more than 40,000 people are killed as a result of these crashes every year. (By comparison, 58,913 people died in the Vietnam War between 1956 and 1975.) Every 13 minutes, someone dies in an auto accident in the United States.
From these statistics it’s easy to see that driving or riding in a motor vehicle is risky – perhaps one of the riskiest activities in which a person can participate. Yet driving a car is something most people do without a second thought – until an accident happens to them.
Then things become complicated. Property damages can mount to the thousands of dollars from even the tiniest scrapes. Ambulance and hospital bills appear if someone gets hurt. And insurance can only do so much.
If you have been injured in an auto accident, you need a personal injury attorney to represent your interests – a auto accident lawyer.
