Car Accidents Can Cause Devastating Injuries
According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, millions of auto accidents occur each year. In 2014, for instance:
- Over 6 million accidents were reported by law enforcement.
- Over 2.3 million people were injured in these accidents
- 32,675 people were killed in these accidents
Many types of injuries can be caused by car accidents, including:
- Broken bones
- Permanent disfigurement or scarring
- A significant head injury
- Brain damage
- Scarring or burns
- Loss of limbs
- Permanent disability
Whenever an auto accident results in injury or death and is caused by the fault of an involved driver, injured parties and their families are entitled to seek compensation. A car accident lawyer can help with this process.
How a Car Accident Lawyer Can Help
When negligence results in injury, an injured party suffers loss in various ways. Drivers or passengers who are injured in car accidents may be able to file a lawsuit with the help of a car crash lawyer and recover compensation for damages resulting from their injuries, including:
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Loss of ability to earn
- Scarring and disfigurement
The families of those who have died may be eligible to recover money for funeral expenses and the pain that comes with losing a loved one.
If the actions causing injury are malicious or so reckless that intent to harm can be inferred, the responsible party can be liable for punitive damages to punish wrongful conduct and deter similar conduct in the future.
Victims of negligence and their families are encouraged to seek the counsel of a car accident lawyer to learn more about their rights and remedies.
