Our life is full of elements which gives and takes a lot of things in this small time on earth. But some things donot actually have much to give. Accidents are one of them. It takes away the most and in return it only gives lessons and tears.

Car accidents and injuries are a vast area of accidents. Let’s see some statistics to see how vast it is:

Global Car Accident Statistics 2013-2015

According to the Association for Safe International Road Travel, the current statistics for auto accidents are as following:

  1. Around 50 million people injured each year.
  2. Almost 300,000 teenager deaths every year.
  3. Stated as the ninth leading cause of death worldwide.
  4. Annually US$518 million damage cost.

Now that we know how serious it is, let me tell you how it can affect your life even if you survive a car accident.

Physical Damage

Even the smallest car crashes can leave you with bruises and pain. And you may have to spend a lot for medical expenses and property damages. In cases of fatal accidents some people are left badly injured. Sometimes it is so bad that a lot of people cannot even work anymore to earn their livelihood.

General Mental Disorders

Injuries caused to your subconscious mind may not be visible from outside, but it kills you inside. Serious accidents may cause you sleep and eating habit disorders. Even worse, you can get injured mentally for lifetime.

Aftermath

Accidents can collapse your economic condition. Medical expense, getting an accident lawyer, loss of wages etc. are the first things you will face. Your personal life can turn into a mess affected by an accident as well. Statistics shows that accident injuries are a major cause of marriage and relationship problems also.

Avoiding Car Accidents

As you can see, car accident can be even more dangerous than death itself.So always try to maintain the followings:-

  1. Don’t drive unless you are licensed to do so.
  2. Always wear your seatbelts, and tell your passengers also.
  3. Never drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  4. Never drive without supervision if you are new.
  5. Always maintain traffic rules.

“If a neighbor is killed in a car accident, do you sell your car and stop driving?” –That’s what Mario Andretti mentioned. Fatal injuries may leave you with serious damages. A bruise or broken bone may heal, but if any part of your gets damaged totally then you won’t be able to do anything about it. So instead of being scared of the road, try to get along with it.

    Contact an attorney regarding the accident immediately after it happens, as there is a statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit for accident compensation. The attorney will file the lawsuit before the expiration of the statute of limitations. Once the lawsuit has been filed, additional pleadings are required. The defendant must file an answer and counter claim in a certain number of days. Both parties must provide discovery within a certain amount of time (time frames depend on individual states and can be found within the rules of procedure for that state).

    Thanks to streamlined auto insurance procedures, the process of what happens after auto accidents is fairly simple. In normal situations, both parties would contact their insurer after an accident occurs to provide them with details. In some cases, they must also make statements to the other party’s insurance company.

      A defendant may also attempt to illustrate that the plaintiff had a poor reputation in the community, in order to diminish any claim for damages resulting from the defamatory statements. A defendant who transmitted a message without awareness of its content may raise the defense of “innocent dissemination”. For example, the post office is not liable for delivering a letter which has defamatory content, as it is not aware of the contents of the letter.

    In work accidents resulting in death, the attorney can help the estate of the deceased recover compensation for the wrongful death. Compensation for wrongful death may include, but is not limited to loss of companionship, suffering, funeral expenses, and loss of wages. If a heinous act caused the accident, the deceased’s estate may be entitled to punitive damages. In work accidents resulting in injury, compensation may include, but is not limited to loss of wages, medical bills, and if a heinous act was the cause of the accident, punitive damages.

    If home accident involving drowning took place on the property and the homeowner did not notify the insurance company that a pool was installed, the insurance company may not pay the claim. In such cases, an accident attorney can help collect the compensation that is due to the injured or the deceased’s estate.

    • Structured Settlement

      March 31, 2015 at 3:38 pm

      Home insurance policies generally have a deductible and, depending on the deductible amount, the homeowner may have to pay as few as $500 or as many as $5,000 out of pocket. Hiring an attorney after a home accident will help to ensure that the injured party’s expenses get paid, either by the insurance company or the homeowner. Insurance policies may not cover all liabilities in home accidents. In the case of a dog bite, the insurance company may not pay the claim if the homeowner misrepresented to the insurance company the type of dog living on the premises. If the homeowner obtained a dog that is on the insurance company’s dangerous dog list and did not notify the insurance company, the insurance company may also refuse to pay the claim.

    It’s also a good idea to retain a lawyer when fault is under dispute. Since being found at fault for auto accidents can impact your ability to receive affordable car insurance coverage as well as making you liable for the other party’s damages, having someone knowledgeable on your side is of critical importance. Work accidents are common, especially in such physical occupations such as factory work, construction, and professional cooking. Injuries from accidents in different jobs can be as diverse as the jobs themselves. Accidents can range from slamming a finger in a drawer to death from a fall or a malfunctioning piece of equipment.

      An uncommon defense is that the plaintiff consented to the dissemination of the statement. Under the First Amendment of the United States Constitution, as set forth by the U.S. Supreme Court in the 1964 Case, New York Times v Sullivan, where a public figure attempts to bring an action for defamation, the public figure must prove an additional element. Another big issue is that defamation cases tend to be difficult to win, and damage awards tend to be small.

    A structured settlement can provide for payment in pretty much any schedule the parties choose.

    When a settlement is paid in this manner it is called a “structured settlement”.

    Often the structured settlement will be created through the purchase of one or more annuities, which guarantee the future payments.
