Motor Vehicle Accidents
Cars, trucks, and motorcycles allow most Americans to enjoy opportunities they likely wouldn’t have without a motor vehicle: A commute to a job that isn’t available in your hometown; the ability to visit family living elsewhere in the state. But this opportunity comes with the risk of serious injury and sometimes death. In the United States, there are 42,000 fatalities from motor vehicle accidents every year. There are about 4,000 spinal injuries resulting in quadriplegia resulting from accidents every year. Motor Vehicle Accidents are the cause of 3 million whiplash injuries every year, with 10% of the injured becoming disabled. Accidents with motorcycles and automobiles impacts results in many riders suffering broken bones, road rash, soft tissue injuries, disfigurement, head trauma and many other serious injuries. These accidents leave many people struggling physically and financially in the aftermath. It’s imperative that negligent drivers be held accountable.
The loss of a parent, spouse, child or other family members can be difficult to fathom. It feels like one moment they’re in your life and the next they are gone. When you lose someone before their time because of carelessness, it’s even harder to handle. There are a surprising number of wrongful death suits brought against negligent parties and insurance companies as a result of catastrophic motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice and elder abuse among other reasons. In these cases, it would be grossly unfair for your family to bear the burden of medical bills, funerals costs and the lost income that person brought into you family.

The long-term repercussions can affect your quality of life indefinitely. Having a personal injury lawyer help you understand the breadth of the loss can bring clarity about realistic financial needs and compensation. Many times, long-term care is more costly than people comprehend.
