Each year, there are almost 6.5 million car accidents in the United States, in which around 43,000 people die.  That amounts to 1 death every 13 minutes, every day.  Car accidents have become a major part of our lives.  In fact, car accidents are the leading cause of death for people under 33 years old.  In many cases these injury claims can be settled, out of court, without a lawsuit.

There are many reasons a car accident may occur, but if the cause is recklessness, negligent or intentional then someone must be held responsible.  These types of accidents can cause serious injuries, such as: head trauma, spinal cord paralysis or nerve damage, broken or dislocated bones or limbs, or perhaps lost use of certain limbs.  Health issues such as these can linger throughout your life, and even cause complications when no symptoms were present. 

If you have experienced injuries such as these you should immediately pursue the appropriate legal remedies.  Because of your injury you may have the right to:

•  Have your medical bills paid.

•  Recoup and lost wages you may have lost.

•  Have treatment for your injuries paid in the future. 

A car accident attorney will be able to maximize your the amount you recover.  Regardless of the severity of your auto crash, you should have the appropriate parties pay for their actions.
