Liability In Car Accidents
According to ASIRT, “Nearly 1.25 million people die in road crashes each year, on average 3,287 deaths a day.” Accidents involving cars going into storefronts may seem like a freak occurrence. But they are actually incredibly common. Drivers sometimes experience “pedal confusion.” In other words they mistake the gas pedal for the brakes.
Any person that is injured in an accident with a negligent driver may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. Many victims may not even realize the full extent of their injuries until several weeks or months later. A car accident attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
