Liability In Town of Canton Car Accidents

Car accidents remain one of the leading causes of serious injury and death in the United States. According to the IIHS, “There were 33,244 fatal motor vehicle crashes in the United States in 2019 in which 36,096 deaths occurred. This resulted in 11.0 deaths per 100,000 people and 1.11 deaths per 100 million miles traveled.” There are a number of common causes of car accidents.

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Inclement weather
  • Driver fatigue

If a driver was speeding prior to a crash, they could be held at fault through a civil claim. Drivers are more likely to lose control of their vehicles when they are speeding. Even driving the speed limit could potentially be dangerous depending on the prevailing conditions of the road. Victims of car accidents tend to suffer very serious and costly injuries including:

  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Head trauma

The family of any victim that died in a car accident may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. It is important that evidence is properly preserved after a collision. A wrongful death attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
