Traffic Collision Results in Injuries

Indeed, driving is essential for many in order to move about in their lives. It is one of the most dangerous activities we do daily. 

Many people do not suspect what follows in the event of a car crash.

Furthermore, according to the United States Department of Transportation (DOT), there are approximately 300,000 merging accidents every year.

Moreover, a personal injury occurs when a person suffers any kind of physical, emotional, or psychological injury. The term “personal injury” covers a wide range of cases that occur from car accidents just like what happened in Highway 97 hit-and-run crash, assaults, slip and fall accidents, injuries from defective products or machinery, and some more cases.

When the involved individual/ suspect failed to meet their duty of care, unexpected and unnecessary personal injuries can take place.

Damages from a personal injury lawsuit range from emotional trauma, physical and mental disability, pain and suffering, disfigurement, bodily injuries, and a range of financial losses.
