According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), an average of 3 million people are injured each year in traffic accidents across the United States.
While the NHTSA reports a steady decrease in the overall traffic fatalities throughout the years, one serious car accident can cause overwhelming physically, emotionally, and financial strains on the victims who do survive.
Traffic accident victims often face loss of income due to the injuries sustained in the accident and, consequentially, debt due to steep medical bills.
If you were injured in an automobile accident, you may qualify to receive compensation for the damages sustained in an automobile accident.
But you need to move quickly.
You typically only have one to two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit.
Insurance company's will offer you the lowest acceptable amount for a settlement, covering car repairs and medial bills.
However, working with an experienced car accident attorney could help you not only receive a higher settlement but also negotiate a settlement for the pain and suffering resulting from the accident.
And in some cases, you may be able to settle out of court.
Pain and suffering
To file a claim, you must adequately establish that the other person or driver preformed reckless behavior that put others in danger.
These reckless behaviors include:
Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
Making illegal turns
Failing to keep their vehicles safe
Breaking the speed limit
Engaging in reckless and illegal behaviors
