Motor vehicles are the second-most common type of accidental fatality in the United States, accounting for more than 40,000 deaths. Moreover, auto accidents cause more than 3 million injuries each year, creating so much suffering for so many –– including friends and family of the accident victims. These types of accidents can also involve motorcycles, buses, trucks and even pedestrians or bicycles.
The insurance industry is established to help victims — but too often it is not motivated to do so. When negligence plays a role, as it so often does, legal assistance is typically necessary to set the matter right. This includes compensation for loss of work or the ability to work, as well as medical costs and more. There are certain steps you need to take if you have suffered an injury from an accident.
