Every year millions of people are injured in motor vehicle accidents many are very serious. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), every 10 seconds someone in the United States is involved in a car accident. There were an estimated 6.3 million police reported traffic crashes, in which 41,744 people were killed an approximately 3.2 million people were injured.

Car accident lawyers provide a free consultation, work on a contingency fee, an accept no fee until they recover money for you by injury settlement or trial. A personal injury attorney will sometimes visit you at home or the hospital per your request. They will also initiate an investigation of your case without cost to you.

Car accident lawyers after a car accident will first establish who is legally at fault. The first step is to move quickly to preserve the evidence which may disappear in time. This evidence may include such things as, damages to all vehicles, roadway conditions and skid marks, as well as witness statements while the events are still fresh in their minds. You should not speak to any representative from an insurance company without first consulting your rights with an attorney.

You should hire a car accident attorney to seeking damages for your loss including pain and suffering if:

1. There is a broken or fractured bone suffered.

2. Permanent and/or serious disfigurement is caused.

3. Death is caused.

Some examples of these factors include:

• Driving too fast or slow.

• Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

• Failing to signal when turning.

• Disobeying traffic signs or signals.

• Failing to drive on the right side of the road.

• Disregarding weather or traffic conditions.

Automobile accidents are generally decided when using the law of negligence. Persons who are negligently operating a vehicle may be required to pay for damages caused by their negligence, either to a person and/or their property. Generally, people who operate automobiles must exercise reasonable care under the circumstances. Failure to use reasonable care is the basis of most law suits when damages, injury or death are caused.

Examples of accidents:

In certain cases accidents are caused by factors unrelated to the way a person is driving. One of these examples is when an automobile manufacturer or supplier may be responsible for injuries caused by a defect in the automobile. An example of this would be the Firestone Tire Litigation. A product liability suit is a lawsuit brought against the seller of a product for selling a defective product that can cause injuries to consumers or people around them.

Another example is if a mechanic fails to properly repair a vehicle, and then that failure causes an accident because of an improper repair. At this point the repair shop, may be help liable for injuries sustained. Other factors such as, poorly maintained roads, malfunctioning traffic signals, improper road design, maintenance, construction, signage, lighting or other highway defects, as well as improper striping on the roads passing lanes, or a sharp obstruction or problem in the roadway that obstructs a drivers vision. If an accident is caused by an intoxicated driver a bar or social host may also be held liable for damages sustained if they served too many drinks to an already intoxicated guest.
