Car Crashes

Car crashes are one of the more common ways for people to get injured. As a car accident lawyer, I can tell you that a rear-end car accident is usually the result of the driver behind not paying enough attention, following too closely, speeding, and or distractions like talking on a cell phone or eating food. Those car wrecks are not accidents in the true sense of the term, but rather are driving errors for which the drivers should be responsible. Damages range from the consequences of injuries like medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering, to fatal car crashes. Most cases result in an injury settlement because of the injured person's costs, the insurance company's costs, and some overlap in the insurance company's and auto lawyer's settlement evaluation based on what a jury is likely to do with the case.
