Liability For Avoca Car Accidents
Car accidents remain one of the leading causes of serious injury and death in the U.S. According to the IIHS, “There were 39,508 fatal motor vehicle crashes in the United States in 2021 in which 42,939 deaths occurred. This resulted in 12.9 deaths per 100,000 people and 1.37 deaths per 100 million miles traveled. The fatality rate per 100,000 people ranged from 5.7 in Rhode Island to 26.2 in Mississippi.” There are a number of steps that should be taken after any car accident.
- Eye witnesses should be interviewed.
- Medical records should be preserved.
- The police report should be examined.
- An experienced personal injury attorney should be consulted.
The vast majority of car accidents are preventable and involve some amount of human error. The family of any person that died in a car accident may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim. Sadly, though, insurance companies will often fight hard to deny liability for any collision. This is why it is so important that evidence is properly preserved after a crash.
