Have you or someone you love been injured in an auto accident? There are an estimated 102 auto accidents that occur daily in the United States, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. That results in an estimated 34,436 traffic crashes every year. The chances of an individual being involved in an auto accident are very high considering the amount of accidents that occur regularly on the roadways. In fact, it is estimated that an individual will be involved in not only accident but four auto accidents during their lifetime.
Many auto accidents occur due to the negligence of others. Some of the most common causes of crashes include distracted driving, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, speeding, dangerous roadways, and reckless driving. In the event that another entity is responsible for your accident, you could be entitled to compensation for your damages.
