Auto accidents are among the most common causes of personal injury to date. An auto accident can completely transform a person’s life, or hinder their ability to normally function or provide for themselves or their families. The devastation that serious vehicle accidents can have on a person or their loved ones can be short or long-term. Damages from auto accidents can include medical and rehabilitation expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other burdens that affect one’s physical, financial, mental, or emotional state. Even those involved in mild to moderate car accidents may be forced to suffer from having to deal with a long process or procedure for getting their lives back in order.
Causes of auto accidents and related injury auto accidents can result from careless or drunk driving, defects in vehicle parts, road hazards, negligence, and other causes. SUV rollover accidents, car wrecks, and tractor-trailer accidents are some of the most common types of accidents reported, and contribute to some of the most devastating injuries incurred. Defective car seat belts and fuel fed fires are also triggers for auto accident injury.
Unfortunately, insurance companies and other parties responsible for damages incurred from accidents all too commonly make more attempts to not fulfill their obligations than to help make accident victims whole again. The experience of insurance companies in using a variety of methods for avoiding paying victims the compensation they are entitled to can be intimidating for first time accident victims unfamiliar with their motives.
