Car accidents happen frequently and pose a serious threat to human safety, and oftentimes may require a car accident lawyer. As anyone who has ever driven on the beltway during rush hour can attest, driving in the Washington, D.C. region is a trying ordeal. It’s also dangerous. A recent study by a national insurance company found that Washington, D.C. ranked #1 in the nation for car accidents (Alexandria, Virginia was #10 on the same list). Car accidents are so common in our region that — except for the traffic they cause — you probably barely notice them during your commute.
All of this changes when it’s you in the accident of the side of the road, or in the ambulance on the way to the hospital. This is often the time when people may need a car accident lawyer most. While car accidents are a common occurrence for the D.C. area, for the people involved they are anything but common. Even if you’re lucky enough not be injured — dealing with insurance companies, taking time off work to get your vehicle fixed, and not having transportation while the car is getting repaired — it’s a huge hassle. Now, if you add that to a serious injury, and that inconvenience can become a nightmare.
Car accidents can happen for many reasons. Some of the most common causes of an accident include:
The car accident lawyer DC trusts can help in many of these cases. According to the 2016 studies from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 37,461 people were killed in 34,436 motor vehicle crashes. This comes out to an average of 102 fatalities per day caused entirely by car accidents. While death is the most extreme result of a car accident, there are also many other injuries that can be caused by car accidents. These can include:
In addition to human injury, there is also the risk of property damage. A car accident lawyer may be able to help deal with both human damage and the damage of property. Car accidents cause thousands of dollars in damage. Depending on the severity of the accident and the type of insurance available, a car accident poses a financial burden on all parties involved. This can be overwhelming to deal with and oftentimes confusing.
