A Car accident can be a situation beyond our control; these incidents alter both the natural flow of traffic and of our lives. The damages caused by this type of accident can include property damage, psychological effects, and personal injuries. In the United States alone, fifteen people die every day due to car accidents.
We can avoid some accidents by taking the necessary precautions, such as using a safety seatbelt and avoiding distractions while driving. In just the last year in the United States, 3,154 people died because they were distracted while driving.
If you have been in any type of vehicular accident and were injured, you have the right to be represented in court by a car accident attorney. By law, you have three years to file a suit in the case of a minor accident, and only two years if the accident is fatal. Keep in mind that if you do not bring the suit to court within the time established by law, you will lose the right to sue.
