Car Accidents and Personal Injury Claims

By Boohoff Law P.A.  Apr. 13, 2011 11:10a

The statistics are staggering, 1 out of every four people will be involved in a car accident at some point in their lifetime and the chances of getting killed in an auto accident are 1 out of every 140 people.

Car accidents remain the leading cause of death among teenagers ages 16 to 20. Every year 5,000 teens die in fatal crashes and another 400,000 ages 16 to 20 will become seriously injured in a car accident. Teenagers account for 10% of the U.S. population and they claim 12% of all fatal car accidents.

If you have been injured in a car accident, you are not alone. It would be best if you contact a Brandon personal injury attorney right away, in order to ensure that your legal rights are protected in your personal injury claim. Nearly everybody knows somebody whose life has been strongly affected by a car accident. Whether they themselves were injured or if they suffered from the loss of a loved one due to a car accident, car accidents are no stranger to Americans.

Car accidents are just that, accidents, which plainly means they could have been prevented. Unfortunately the human body is no match against thousands of pounds of steel. Whether people get behind the wheel after having a few too many drinks and later cause a drunk driving accident, or if people act in a careless and negligent manner as they text while driving, both are forms of careless, negligent or reckless driving and all of which, can cause head and back injuries, knee injuries or even wrongful death. Driver negligence leads down the same path, regardless of what unsafe action or behavior got them there.
