Car accidents result in countless injuries and deaths each year. Automobile accidents can injure people even with no visible signs of vehicle damage. They can also cause grave accidents leading to serious injuries. A large percentage of auto accidents are caused by negligence and recklessness of drivers. Approximately 2 million Americans are injured in whiplash accidents. Ten percent of whiplash victims become disabled. A lot of accident victims settle their case with the insurance companies before getting evaluated from a doctor trained in soft tissue injuries.
Accidents involving large trucks are among the most serious and most deadly in the U.S. Trucking companies are required to follow Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations concerning their equipment and their drivers' hours of service. A typical fully-loaded large commercial truck can weigh 80,000 pounds or more. While statistics show that truck drivers are much more careful on the road than automobile drivers, and fatal crashes involving trucks and other large vehicles have declined in recent years, large truck crashes still accounted for 5350 fatalities and 133,000 injuries in 2001.
Personal injury cases can include Auto Accidents, Defamation of Character, Product Defects and Medical Malpractice. Personal injury cases are brought about by physical injury or mental anguish caused by actions or negligence of another party. Personal injury law covers the physical harm the individual may have endured. Personal injury cases often involve grave injury, permanent disability, as well as death.
Wrongful death occurs when a person is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another individual or company. The purpose of wrongful death laws is to compensate the survivors of a victim of wrongful death. Every state has a civil set of statutes which establish the procedures for bringing wrongful death actions. A wrongful death claim may arise out of a number of circumstances, such as, medical malpractice, death during a supervised activity, or automobile accident.
