Auto Accident Attorney

Once upon a time people had to walk for miles to get to somewhere. But after the revolution of steam engines mankind got the taste of automobiles. Now anywhere is just a drive away. And car is a part of our everyday life. And that’s why E.B White said that, “Everything in life is somewhere else, and you get there in a car.”

But with major uses, major faults come along. And this is why car accidents are a frightening element for drivers. Here are some statistics to show what I am really talking about:-

Car Accident Statistics of USA

  1. Number of average car accident death every day is around 104, that makes it over 37,000 deaths every year.
  2. 70% road kills are among people aged 15 to 44.
  3. Nearly 400,000 deaths each year of people aged fewer than 25.
  4. 8,000 deaths each year involving drivers aged 16 to 20.
  5. Cost of road accidents each year is US$ 230.6 billion each.

There are a lot of accident laws to prevent and reduce car accidents. But the government alone is not capable enough to handle such a problem alone without co-operation of the mass people. So there are a few things we have to do as well.

Auto Recall

Auto recall is the admittence of the manufacturer that a vehicle from their production line has a defect. An auto recall is compulsury if:

  1. A vehicle does not go along with the Federal Motor Vehicles Safety Standard. This includes defect in motor vehicle equipments components and chasis.
  2. The vehicle has a safety related defect. This includes:
  1.             Equipments causing failure to control the vehicle.
  2.             Defective wheels.
  3.             Improper design of seats.
  4.             Electricity wiring problems.
  5.             Protective equipments that doesn’t work, like seat belts or air bags. Etc.

What to do

Basically, auto recalls are initiated by the manufactures. And you will be notified of the problem. Others are initiated by NHTSA Investigation or by vehicle owners complaint.

When you get notified about the recall you should contact the manufacture or dealer for a repair, refund or replacement. But if for some reason you are refused to get any of those then you can get a product liability attorney to file a lawsuit. And in case of an accident relating to this, you can contact an auto accident attorney.

Conclusion

Did you know, that billions of people die each year globally because of car accidents? Not only that, its also declared as a major reason of deaths. So you must not only drive properly, you car must be in the condition to handle the driving as well.

    Because the plaintiff must demonstrate the defendant’s legal liability for the plaintiff’s injuries, the plaintiff’s opening statement is usually given first, and is often more detailed than that of the defendant. In some cases, the defendant may wait until the conclusion of the plaintiff’s main case before making its own opening statement.

    It doesn’t matter how smart or educated you are — the law can be very confusing for anyone, and a seasoned attorney will be able to help you make sense of your options. Injury lawyers are trained to look for opportunities to avoid trials or weaken the opposition’s arguments through motions. Contact a qualified lawyer for a free consultation before making such important legal decisions.

    After the plaintiff concludes its case-in-chief and “rests,” the defendant can present its own evidence in the same proactive manner, seeking to show that it is not liable for the plaintiff’s claimed harm. The defense may call its own witnesses to the stand, and can present any of its own independent evidence in an effort to refute or downplay the key elements of the plaintiff’s legal allegations. Once the defense has rested, the plaintiff has an opportunity to respond to the defense’s arguments through a process known as “rebuttal,” a brief period during which the plaintiff may only contradict the defense’s evidence (rather than present new arguments). Sometimes, the defense may in turn have a chance to respond to the prosecution’s rebuttal.

    In some cases, your lawyer may conclude that the facts set forth in the complaint do not state a legal claim for relief. For example, the complaint may allege that you did some negligent act that injured the plaintiff. The law may provide that you don’t have any responsibility to look out for the plaintiff under the circumstances described in the complaint. If you don’t have a legal responsibility, you cannot be held liable for the plaintiff’s injuries.

    “Venue” refers to the particular location of the court. States have statutes setting forth the places within the state where you can be sued. If you are not sued in one of those places, the site of the lawsuit is inappropriate. A venue may be legally improper even if the court has personal jurisdiction over you. A frequent solution to this problem is not to dismiss the case, but to order that it be transferred to the proper venue. A case may be dismissed if there is a technical defect in the summons (which is rare), or if you were not properly served with the summons and complaint (which is more common). Service may be improper for a number of reasons, so be sure to tell your lawyer about how you were served and any odd circumstances so your lawyer can determine whether it could lead to the case being dismissed.

    The following list of injuries includes general torts, such as assault; medical malpractice claims, including birth defects; car accidents; dangerous foods and drugs; injurious consumer products; and more. Talk to a personal injury lawyer in your area if you need additional legal help.
