Every time we get out on the road, we run the risk that a negligent driver will cause an accident. More and more we see the effect of bad driving behaviors. No matter how often law enforcement and others remind drivers that the law prohibits things like distracted driving, reckless driving and driving while on drugs or alcohol, drivers think it won't happen to them. They drink too much and commit dangerous and deadly maneuvers. Take an example. A car runs out of gas on a highway and is stopped on the shoulder. A drunk driver comes along, doesn't have the competency or awareness to realize the vehicle is stopped. The drunk driver rear ends the stopped vehicle that is off the side of the road at high speed. The result? The death of one of the children who is sitting innocently in the back seat of the vehicle and is killed by the drunk driver. This happened on an American highway in recent years. The drunk driver is now in jail serving a term for having caused the death of a four-year-old child. The mother was sitting in the car when this occurred. This is an example of the sort of dangerous driving that can result in serious or fatal injury.
Car accidents can vary in seriousness from fatal injuries like the accident described earlier or those that result in such things as traumatic brain injury, limb injuries and burn injuries. The consequences of these injuries can be life changing and can take many years to resolve. When injuries are caused by another driver on the road that hits or collides with your car, or causes a chain reaction accident in which you are involved, that driver can be held liable for your injuries. This means that their insurance carrier can be held to pay for a victim's injuries, medical bills, pain and suffering and other damages. What if your injuries keep you from going back to work for a while? You should not have to worry about paying your bills or feeding your family until you can get back to work. The driver or his or her insurance carrier is responsible for this when it can be shown that their driver caused the crash. When insurance companies try to avoid paying, we present your case to them in a powerful way to make them pay. If they do not pay, we will take them to court for trial before a judge or jury.
