Car accidents can be a nerve-wracking and traumatizing experience. They can result from driver error, driver distraction, excessive speed, failure to comply with the “Rules of the Road”, road or vehicle defects, and much more. In today’s technologically laden days, it is extremely easy for drivers to become distracted through the many portable electronic gadgets the average person carries around. An act as simple as making a phone call or sending a message can have potentially deadly consequences on other people on the road as well as the driver.
While many car accident injuries are minor, a significant portion can have catastrophic consequences on an individual and his or her family. These injuries are not always as serious as one might think. Common injuries that have long standing impacts may be as seemingly minor as whip lash or soft tissue damage, and they may also be as obviously debilitating as brain or spinal injuries and severely broken bones. It is important to find an attorney who will work with you, your insurance company, the police, and any other parties involved to make sure you receive the maximum compensation for your suffering.
