In a matter of seconds, an automobile accident can drastically change your life. The loss of a family member’s care and support cannot be adequately measured in purely financial terms. Even a less serious accident can mean discomfort and a damaged or lost vehicle. There can also be longer-lasting, or even permanent, effects: physical impairments, required therapy, lost income, reduced future earnings, pain and suffering, property damage, and more.
If you or a family member has been injured in a car collision, you should get the help you need to restore your life as fully as possible, and receive fair compensation for the care you need and the damage you have suffered. Especially if someone else caused or contributed to your injuries, you should have the skills and knowledge of an experienced auto accident attorney in dealing with insurance companies to represent your interests. Let the King Firm help ensure that you get what you need.
Proving what caused an accident, identifying all parties who may be responsible, and documenting your damages can be complex issues. Insurance firms have adjusters, investigators and attorneys to protect company interests; without your own skilled advocates, who will effectively represent your interests?
Auto Accidents Can Cause Major Damages — Get the Help You Need
Automobile accidents are daily occurrences, but also serious business. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has identified the nation’s almost 33,700 motor vehicle accidents in 2010 as the year’s leading cause of death by injury for Americans between the ages of 5 and 24, and the second-leading cause of death for all other age groups, except for infants in their first year. The same was true for 2009, and in both years motor vehicles were the top cause of fatal injuries overall.
In 2000, the Census Bureau reports Florida’s more than 2,550 traffic-related deaths marked the third-highest total among the states, behind only California and Texas, which each had over 3,050. Using data from 2005, the CDC also put the economic cost of fatal motor vehicle collisions, from medical expenses and lost productivity, at $41 billion. The economic cost rises to $99 billion, when the costs of medical treatments and lost productivity for the 2.3 million drivers and passengers hurt in non-fatal accidents are factored in.
