Car Accident Injury Attorneys
Of all personal injury claims, auto accidents are the most prevalent. Thousands of car accidents occur every day across the US from any number of causes. Although most accidents are minor and do not result in injuries, a substantial number do injure, maim and kill thousands of motorists, passengers and pedestrians every year.
What Are the Causes of a Car Accident?
Car accidents occur from any number of factors. Some of the more common factors are listed below:
• Distracted driving (cell phone use, eating and talking)
• Running a red light or stop sign
• Motor vehicle defects such as faulty brakes
• Defective highway design
• Failure to warn motorists of hazards
Highway patrol and law enforcement agencies investigate car accident injuries and fatalities, but often the cause is disputed or is unclear. An experienced car accident lawyer at Ready Kiernan & McNally LLP can retain accident reconstruction experts and investigators to delve more deeply to determine which party or parties should be held responsible for causing your accident.
Types of Injuries in Car Accidents
While most car accident injuries involve minor bruises or a neck strain, many prove to be catastrophic if not fatal. Typical car accident injuries include:
• Neck and back strains
• Broken bones
• Spinal injuries
• Knee injuries
• Internal organ damage
• Head trauma including brain damage
• Emotional trauma
Many of these injuries can cause extreme financial hardship as well as drastically alter an injured victim's lifestyle, sometimes permanently.
