According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, statistics for the first three months of this year show that there have already been around 7,630 people who have been involved in fatal
car accidents. This is just between the months of January and March of 2012. Unfortunately car accidents are one of the leading causes in deaths in the United States, it is a sad truth to have to face. Even with strict laws that involving cell phone usage while driving, or laws that have strict punishments for those who drive while being intoxicated by drugs or alcohol, the accidents continue to keep happening. It is one thing to understand that other peoples poor ability to drive or to obey the law will lead to car accidents, it is another to be injured in your vehicle because a road was poorly repaired or not at all.
Currently in the United States there are extreme budget cuts everywhere, especially with city maintenance funding. The city departments are being forced to resort to alternative methods to clean up or fix the roads; but what if those measures are not safe? People are being severely injured or killed as a result of poorly managed roads. When a car or motorcycle gets stuck or forced to quickly swerve because of a faulty road that causes other vehicles, even pedestrians to be in great danger. Thankfully cars have seat belts, and motorcyclists are required to wear helmets; that however is not always enough to protect a person from a fatal accident.
If you or someone you know has been involved in a car accident whether due to poorly managed roads, or because of a poorly managed other driver, you deserve legal representation that will fight for justice. While some injuries may heal, others don’t; and those who are killed in car accidents can never be brought back. Due to the pain and suffering that car accidents cause, you deserve compensation for the hardships you and your family have been put through. Contact the Law Offices of Thomas J.
