Accidents Are Common And Can Happen To Anyone

Easily one of the most common causes of injury in the U.S. today, vehicular collisions are a major cause for safety concern that affect nearly everyone, whether they are drivers or passengers. Automobile accidents, including tractor-trailer collisions and other types of wrecks can cause severe bodily injury, physical disability and incur high costs in damages on their own – all of this without considering the costs of the time you may spend recovering from injury away from work or the pain and suffering that sadly accompany severe accidents.

As if the inherent risks of driving at high speeds weren’t cause of enough accidents, road distractions such as signage, use of cellphones, texting and animal crossings make the possibility of a serious collision even higher. Modern technology, while convenient, can create distractions leading to death or serious bodily injury.

The Damages From Car Wrecks Are Extensive

Speeding, reckless driving, distracted driving, vehicle malfunction, traffic signal malfunctions or poor weather conditions, are all common causes of traffic collisions, roll overs and rear-end accidents. Despite the usage of the term “accident”, however, very few car wrecks are truly unpreventable. Even if another driver is found to be at fault for your accident, that does not necessarily mean that their insurance will give you a fair deal. Your cost of physical injury, be it broken bones, head trauma, spinal injury, back pain or any other serious condition, is the most obvious consequence of your wreck.

However, there are many other costs to evaluate as well. Did you miss time from work? Did you have to rent a car? Are you able to perform the same activities at the same level you could before? Are you able to fully care for those who may depend you or your ability to drive? All these concerns and more are things you should consider when looking back at your wreck and the injury you and your family have suffered. These are all issues that insurance may not consider when evaluating your claim.
