Approximately 17000-18000 car accidents happen in America daily. This amounts to about 6 million per year, and out of that number, roughly 1.2 million are fatal. This gives us an idea of just how frequent auto accidents are, and how much damage each one can cause to the lives of the victims. Whiplash, head injuries, and spinal injuries are only a few of the physical injuries that car accidents can bring. Very often, car accidents also leave people with mental anguish and emotional trauma.
The entire experience can really change a person’s life for the worse. Fortunately, the law provides car accident victims with opportunities to recover damages for personal injuries. The wronged party may file for a compensation claim against the negligent party in the vehicular accident.
Unfortunately, there can sometimes be hindrances that aim to keep a person from upholding their rights and pursuing justice. For example, some insurance companies have been known to resort to dirty tricks to save money. They will send people called insurance adjusters to the homes of car accident victims to offer unfairly small amounts of cash in exchange for a settlement.
Victims who are unaware of their rights might accept these offers and never get the chance to go to court to get a real shot at a reasonable amount of compensation because they had already settled for a petty sum. The best way to avoid something like that from happening is to find out what exactly you are entitled to after being injured in a car accident.
