Car and Truck Accidents
According to the National Highway Safety Administration, motor vehicle crashes resulting in death have risen steadily during the last decade. Additionally, according to the World Health Organization, traffic collisions kill more than 1.2 million people worldwide each year.
When you are involved in a motor vehicle collision, you may have rights against the driver who caused the collision. If you have suffered physical injury or lost wages because of another driver's negligence, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. So accidents involve more than one defendant. For example, a negligently designed car or truck may have caused the accident. In some cases a poorly designed roadway may have led to the accident. Regardless of the cause of an accident you should seek the advice of a qualified lawyer anytime you have been injured in an accident.
You have the right to be fairly compensated when the negligence of another driver injures you or your family.
