Get compensation and peace of mind
Every day, millions of Americans get behind the wheel of a car. Whether it’s dropping the kids off at school, driving to work, or just running errands, most people rely on cars as their primary mode of transportation. However, life can change in just a moment when cars collide. Car accidents can have a catastrophic effect on the victims and their families. Because cars hold the potential to cause such severe or even fatal injuries, drivers are expected to drive responsibly. When a negligent driver causes an accident, they need to be held responsible for their actions.
Common Causes of Car Accidents
It only takes a second for a car accident to happen. If a driver takes their eyes off the road or hands off the wheel, terrible injuries can result. Some of the most common and preventable causes of car accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Using a cell phone while driving
- Failure to yield to traffic
- Running stop signs or traffic lights
- Aggressive or reckless driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
Car Accident Injuries
Recovering after a car accident is often a long and frustrating process. Victims can suffer from broken bones, neck and back injuries, traumatic brain injuries, whiplash, bruises and lacerations, and spinal cord injuries. Many victims will not only require emergency medical treatment, but could require multiple surgeries, long-term physical therapy, specialty medical treatment, and numerous other treatments to fully recover. However, many victims suffer permanent injuries, such as paralysis, brain damage, or even death.
The true cost of a car accident is much more than an emergency room visit and a wrecked car. Recovery is a long process, and many will not be able to immediately return to work, resulting in lost wages. The financial strains after an accident can make victims and their families feel helpless, but the car accident lawyers at Whitfield, Bryson & Mason LLP can help.
