Every hour, nearly 150 children between ages 0 and 19 are treated in emergency departments for injuries sustained in motor vehicle crashes. More children ages 5 to 19 die from crash-related injuries than from any other type of injury.
When an accident involves three or more vehicles, how do you determine who is at fault or liable?
Multi-vehicle accidents often happen when three or more vehicles hit each other in a “chain” of rear-end accidents. Typically, we assume that the driver who does the rear-ending is at-fault, but that is not necessarily the case in a chain reaction accident.
When you have been in a car accident, sometimes serious and even life-threatening injuries are not always visible immediately. What you may not realize is that your body may be in shock and not registering what is wrong. In fact, it is not uncommon for symptoms to show up hours or days, sometimes even weeks, after an accident.
Approximately, 5,000 people in passenger vehicles die every year in automotive accidents involving semi-trucks. Large commercial truck accidents tend to be more complex than those that occur between standard passenger vehicles.
Night time driving is a must for anyone who works second and third shifts as well as for those who are taking care of day-to-day activities or who just want to enjoy the evening with family and friends.
Unfortunately, driving gets more dangerous as the light fades. While we only do one quarter of our driving at night, 50% of traffic deaths happen at night. In fact, more than 40,000 people were killed in car crashes in 2016 (according to Injury Facts).
At times, it may be necessary to bring in experts to assist in proving negligence in motor vehicle accidents. Accident reconstructions are one tool we can use to help determine liability.
Often, we assume that parking lots and parking garages are relatively safe places to drive. These do not seem to be the type of place where car accidents are likely to occur, so we let our guard down. However, according to the National Safety Council, on average, more than 50,000 crashes occur in parking lots and parking garages annually.
Did you know …
In 2016, 3.2 trillion miles were driven on U.S. roads. Is it any wonder that, on average, each year there are 6,000,000 motor vehicle accidents occurring?
Often the question arises as to how much money a claim is worth or how much an accident victim might be entitled to. Without knowing the details of your situation, that question can’t be answered; however, we can tell you that a fair settlement will depend on several factors such as the severity of your injuries, the medical treatments needed, and who was at fault or negligent to start.
