Vehicle accidents are the leading cause of injury in the United States for people ages 1-34. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, someone in the United States is involved in a car accident every 10 seconds.
When they occur, auto accidents can cause severe and permanent injuries. Such injuries often result in devastating financial losses to the individuals involved and their families. Fortunately, the law provides an injured person with the right to recover money damages from the responsible party and their insurance company. Such damages include medical expenses, lost wages, funeral expenses and other economic losses. Individuals are also entitled to recover for the pain and suffering caused by their injuries and treatment. Although a monetary recovery can never repair the damage done to the individual, it can ease the financial burdens created by the car accident.
