Auto Accidents are the Most Common Accidents

autoaccident1According to the U.S. Census, there are approximately 10,800,000 auto accidents occur every year in the United States. Out of this number, approximately 33,800 deaths occur, from both DUI and non-DUI accidents. The number of auto accident injuries are oftentimes only reported if the parties are involved in a legal issue. If you have been in an auto accident that injured you or one of the passengers, and it was not your fault, then it is time to contact a personal injury attorney to retrieve the losses.

Auto Insurance companies are not designed to pay their client the full amount when an accident occurs, and they often try to pay less. It takes an experienced personal injury lawyer to petition and win the full compensation that the victim deserves. Expenses come from hospital and doctors’ expenses, pain and suffering, and wages from missed work and could include housing costs and more. Insurance does not typically pay missed wages or emotional damage. Their goal is to settle quickly to save their company as much as possible.
