Motor Vehicle Accidents

Vehicle Accident Photo

This year alone in the U.S.:

  • there will be more than 6,000,000 motor vehicle accidents;
  • more than 3,000,000 people will be injured in these motor vehicle accidents; and
  • more than 40,000 people will die as a result of injuries suffered from these motor vehicle accidents.

Anyone injured in a motor vehicle accident may experience:

  • pain and suffering from the injuries;
  • medical expenses incurred in receiving treatment for the injuries;
  • loss of income from a resulting partial or total inability to work following the injuries; and
  • a loss of the ability to enjoy normal life experiences due to limitations from the injuries
The most immediate concerns and questions are likely to revolve around medical bills and the loss of income while recovering from the injuries sustained. Depending on the nature of the injuries, however, there may also be questions about what the future holds. Will there be permanent problems resulting from your injuries? Will recovery from the injuries be sufficient to be able to return to work? These are valid concerns and appropriate questions.

For some, recovery will be quick and the experience will be little more than an inconvenience. For others, however, the injuries will be severe and permanent. It may not be possible to return to work or even to experience a normal life.

Motor vehicle accident cases are characterized by many lawyers as routine. Insurance companies and their lawyers count on the fact that most lawyers will handle motor vehicle cases as routine. Yet motor vehicle accident cases are anything but routine. Each accident and each client’s injuries are unique and may have hidden complexities. Sufficient evidence must be developed to demonstrate that someone else was at fault for the accident. This may require obtaining police reports, interviewing witnesses, taking photographs of the scene and the vehicles involved, and possibly even reconstructing the accident. In addition, the nature and extent of your injury must be fully understood before settlement is even considered. In some cases, it may be important to have a thorough examination by medical specialists to determine whether you have any long term injuries resulting from the accident. When the case is prepared from the very begining as though it will reach a trial, you and your attorney will be in the best position for settlement and for trial.
