According to the United States Department of Transportation’s report on Traffic Safety, there were 6,328,000 motor vehicle crashes in the United States in 2003. As a result of those crashes, 2,931,643 people suffered injuries and 42,643 of those injuries proved fatal. On an average, roughly 7,915 people a day suffer injuries as a result of the negligent and reckless driving of others. Unfortunately, it is likely that you could be involved in at least one motor vehicle crash in your lifetime.
Accident victims face medical bills, loss of wages, physical pain, emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life. If injuries are severe or permanent, families suffer economic loss, mental anguish and the loss of companionship in caring for an injured family member. In the event of death, families are torn apart without any warning.

It is important to know what to do to protect the legal rights of yourself and your loved ones. Time is of the essence in serious injury cases because physical evidence may be destroyed or lost, witnesses’ memories may fade, and recovery of out of pocket expenses can be delayed.
