What’s the problem?
Car accidents are a leading cause of unnecessary deaths in the United States and therefore the number one source of personal injury claims in the nation. According to a recent crash test data report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 6,087,000 cars were involved in traffic accidents in the year 2005 alone. This comprised 56.1 percent of all motor vehicle crashes. In that same year, fatal automobile accidents took the lives of 18,440 people, and injury accidents harmed another 1,573,000.
In car accident lawsuits, the case is usually against the driver who caused the accident. In multiple-party accidents, there is usually one driver who is at fault. Car accident lawsuits are typically brought forth against the negligent driver in order to gain compensation for damages either to a person or property. The person injured in the accident has to prove that injuries were caused by the accident and by the driver’s negligence.
Other external cases, such as poor road conditions, broken traffic signals, and other unsafe driving conditions can cause auto accidents that are not the fault of the driver or drivers involved. While city or state governments can be held accountable in accident lawsuits of this kind, it is often difficult to make such lawsuits stick in court. A personal injury attorney experienced in auto accidents can help determine the merit of a case against a city or state transportation official.
