Have you been injured or have you lost a loved one in an auto accident?
Although most people do not anticipatebeing involved in a motor vehicle collision, car accidents constitute one of the leading causes of severe injury and death in the U.S. Over five million people per year are involved in car accidents that result in two million people suffering injury and more than 30,000 fatalities. Car accidents also constitute the leading cause of death for children and teenagers. Four children under the age of 14 die in car accidents, and over 500 additional children of the same age suffer injury on a daily basis in the U.S.Statistically, every driver in the U.S. will be involved in at least one serious accident at some point.
When you are involved in a serious car accident, there are a number of actions you should take to protect your health and your future right to compensation. A driver involved in a car accident is required by law to stop and exchange insurance information with the other driver if anyone has suffered injury. It is important to summon police and medical personnel so that anyone who is injured can get immediate medical attention. If you suffer even minor injuries, no matter how slight your symptoms, it is in your best interest to seek medical advice because serious injuries can often initially appear minor. Another important step that you should take is to obtain the identity and contact information of anyone who witnessed the accident and take pictures of any vehicle damage, the positions of the vehicles, injuries suffered by anyone, and the accident scene.

If you take these precautions following a serious car accident, you establish a solid foundation for your car accident claim. Most traffic collisions are caused by the negligent or reckless conduct of those driving motor vehicles. Negligence in this context is a legal term that essentially describes a driver who engages in unsafe driving conduct that creates an unreasonable risk of injury to others. The leading causes of negligence-related car accidents are driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, distracted driving, and speeding.
It is particularly tragic that the leading causes of crashes are entirely preventable if people simply abstain from unsafe driving practices. Despite tougher laws to prevent drunk driving and stiffer penalties, drunken drivers still account for 32 percent of all car accident fatalities. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has indicated that distracted driving, particularly involving handheld electronic devices like mobile phones, may have surpassed drunk driving as the number one cause of fatal car crashes.
