Statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report that each year, over 6.3M vehicle related accidents occur in the United States. Not only is this the most common cause of personal injury, it also one of the most deadly. While it’s important to understand these risks while operating your vehicle, there is no guarantee you’ll always be able to avoid significant injury, even if you are a cautious and responsible driver. The fallout from an auto-accident can be extreme. In addition to damages to your vehicle, a motor accident can result in injuries that permanently impact your life. This can prevent you from returning to your work and career and cause lingering pain that impacts your ability to function normally. In this country, there are over $800B in payments every year as a result of these accidents, so you’ll want to understand the type of compensation you might be eligible for, and what it takes to pursue damages for your physical injury and vehicle.
Why Consult a Personal Injury Lawyer?
If you are injured in an automotive accident, you should immediately consult with a personal injury lawyer as soon as you’re physically able. These types of cases require a large amount of legal work in order to build effectively, which includes gathering witness statements, evidence, medical records, and other investigative work. It also requires intense negotiations and meetings with insurance companies and their legal representative, which can make it very difficult for the average person to advocate for their best interests effectively. This is too much for any one person to do, even if you are physically healthy, and the task becomes that much harder when you’re suffering from debilitating injuries as a result of your accident. Consulting with a trained legal professional gives you the best possible chance to maximize your compensation, which becomes even more apparent when you consider that the majority of cases that go to trial end up losing.
