Liability For Clayton Car Accidents
Speeding is one of the most common causes of car accidents in the United States. It has been estimated that around 1/3 of all collisions involve a speeding driver. What many people don’t realize is that driving the speed limit can be dangerous during even slightly poor weather. The roads tend to be the most slick just after it rains. Victims of car accidents tend to suffer very serious and costly injuries including:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Organ damage
Any person that is injured in a car accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. Many people may not realize the full extend of their injuries for a long period of time after a collision. A car accident attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
