Some car accidents occur as the result of random chance or bad luck, when elements in the universe conspire against all of those involved. These wrecks may be caused by bad weather, bad road conditions, or objects such as an animal that darts into the road.
However, many other car wrecks are caused by negligent drivers who get behind the wheel when they should not. These irresponsible people may be:
- Drunk Drivers
- Overly aggressive
- Distracted Driving
- On drugs
As you can imagine, these drivers can cause a wide range of car crashes. They may slam into another driver in an intersection, veer into another car’s lane on the interstate, or even drive head-on into another vehicle on a two-lane highway.
These wrecks can cause serious and debilitating injuries for all of those involved. You or your loved ones may suffer serious cuts or burns, broken bones or internal injuries, back or neck injuries and head or brain injuries that can easily be fatal.
If you or a family member has been injured in a car wreck caused by a negligent driver who should not have been on the road, you may be eligible to recover damages from the crash. You may be able to receive financial compensation for your medical bills, ongoing care or physical therapy, lost wages from missed time at work and even pain or emotional suffering.
