Liability For Tuxedo Car Accidents
Car accidents remain a leading cause of preventable injury and death. According to the IIHS, “A total of 42,939 people died in motor vehicle crashes in 2021. The U.S. Department of Transportation’s most recent estimate of the annual economic cost of crashes is $340 billion. Contributing to the death toll are alcohol, speeding, lack of seat belt use and other problematic behaviors.” Victims of car accidents tend to suffer very serious injuries including:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
The vast majority of car accidents are due to speeding. Drivers are much more likely to lose control of their vehicles at higher speeds. If a driver fails to slow down to avoid a collision, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. Any person that is injured in a car accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. A personal injury attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
