This blog has previously discussed some of the serious types of harm brain injury victims injured in car accidents can suffer. Car accident victims should be familiar with the ways personal injury legal protections can help them with their losses and the costs associated with brain injuries.
Traumatic brain injuries are severe injuries that can be suffered in a car accident and can have a serious impact on the lives of victims. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that car accidents are the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries in victims. It is important for car accident victims who have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) to be familiar with personal injury options protecting them.
Motorcycle safety and keeping motorcyclists safe on the roadway is important and it is also important for injured motorcycle accident victims to understand the legal protections available to them when they have been harmed in a motorcycle accident. Personal injury legal protections can help them recover compensation to help with their medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering damages.
Distracted driving can cause serious car accidents and injuries to victims. Because victims can be unexpectedly harmed by a distracted driver, it is important for them to be familiar with the legal resources available to help them.
Whiplash and other soft tissue injuries are a type of car accident injury many individuals may be familiar with but they may be unaware of how serious these injuries are or that they can worsen over time. Soft tissue injuries should not be dismissed or taken lightly because they can result in years of struggle for car accident victims which can result in medical bills and other challenges faced.
Car accidents are an unfortunate part of life that can cause serious injuries and damages to victims and their families. In South Carolina, there are approximately 100,000 car accidents annually. Those car accidents cause 50,000 injuries and result in 900 deaths. The harm caused by car accidents can have a dramatic impact on the lives of victims and their families.
Legal protections to both hold negligent drivers accountable and protect car accident victims from the damages associated with car accident injuries are essential for victims and their families to be familiar with. Personal injury legal protections allow an injured car accident victim to bring a claim for damages against a negligent driver responsible for the harm they have suffered.
Distracted driving poses serious dangers on roadways throughout the country and in South Carolina. When victims have been injured by a distracted driver, there are important legal protections available to them that they should be familiar with.
Car accidents can result in unthinkable damages to victims that may extend well beyond the initial accident. Victims of car accidents may face medical expenses, lost earnings and emotional damages associated with an unexpected car accident.
Technology is evolving at a rapid pace, especially in the automobile industry. One feature on newer automobiles that may be especially attractive to buyers in South Carolina is the "infotainment system." These systems allow a motorist to connect their smartphone to the automobile, which then can be operated using a touch screen or voice command on the vehicle's dashboard.
