Automobile accidents happen fast – often a few seconds is all it takes to completely alter the course of someone’s life.
According to the World Health Organization, nearly 1.25 million people die in road crashes each year for an average 3,287 deaths per day – and an additional 20 to 50 million people are injured or disabled in these unfortunate events. The high globalrate of fatalities and disabilities related to car accidents has been called an epidemic and even identified as a major public health concern.
Car wrecks are also a major problem right here in our home state. According to the latest available California Highway Patrol statistics, automobile crashes and car accidents resulted in 2,995 deaths and 226,544 injuries in 2012 on California roadways.
Because they are so common, odds are one of these automobile-related tragedies has affected you personally. Perhaps a road crash has taken the life of someone you love, or maybe you were injured in an auto accident and are struggling to regain a sense of normalcy in the aftermath.
Road crashes can cause a number of serious and potentially debilitating injuries. The most common include:
- Whiplash (muscle, ligament, and tendon injuries)
- Scrapes and cuts
- Head injuries
- Broken ribs and other broken bones
- Internal bleeding
- Knee trauma
Recovering from an accident is hard enough without having to navigate a complex and potentially overwhelming legal landscape, especially when insurance companies are involved. Knowing your rights and having an experienced attorney on your side can help ensure the best possible financial outcome for you and your family while you focus on more important things like healing, recuperating, and getting your life back to normal.
