Clinton Car Accident Lawyers
Car Accident Lawyers in Clinton
Car crashes are the leading cause of accident injury and death and are the most common type of personal injury accident across the nation. Whether you live in a bustling metropolis or a smaller city like Clinton, Maryland, there are always cars on the road and there are always drivers who are not taking their responsibility for the safety of other road users seriously. Car accidents can cause a wide range of injuries, which, in turn, result in various consequences, none of them positive. The worst part of a car accident is that even if you do everything right as a driver, passenger, pedestrian, or bicyclist, you are still at the mercy of others on the road.
Common Forms of Negligence on the Road
When the negligence or recklessness of another is to blame for a personal injury accident, the injured victim can hold the at-fault party liable in civil court for the losses and damages they have suffered. As far as traffic accidents are concerned, the most common forms of negligence or recklessness that cause injury accidents include:
- Drunk driving;
- Distracted driving;
- Inattentive driving;
- Right-of-way violations;
- Running red-lights;
- Fatigued driving;
- Improper braking; and
- Unsafe lane changes.
Generally, if a motorist causes a car accident as the result of violating any traffic laws, they can be considered negligent, and thus responsible for the injuries and other damages resulting from the crash. In the case of serious injuries, pursuing compensation from the at-fault party may be the only way to obtain the medical services you need.
Serious Injuries Require Serious Action
Although some auto accidents may be minor and result in simple cuts, scrapes, and/or bruises, the majority of crashes result in injuries far worse, especially in the event of a pedestrian accident or bicycle collision. Serious injuries that may occur include broken bones, crushed bones, deep lacerations, brain injury, and spinal cord injury. These injuries need much more than a band-aid to heal. The medical treatments and other services necessary to recover from such serious injuries are expensive and extensive, and, at the end of it all, you may still suffer from partial or even total disability. Without adequate compensation, the long-lasting effects of such injuries can create financial and emotional hardships for you and your family.
Getting the Compensation You Deserve
Car accidents occur every day and the worst part of it is that you are not in complete control of your own safety. You cannot protect yourself from the actions of other drivers, even by taking every safety precaution, but you can make sure you are well informed of what can be done should you fall victim to a negligent or reckless driver.
