The Rising Numbers of Auto Accident in the US
According to the United States Department of Transportation, there are approximately 300,000 merging accidents every year.
Roadways, while scrupulously created and mapped for efficient travel, are one of the most dangerous settings.
As common of an occurrence as they are, many people do not suspect what follows in the event of a car crash.
The most valuable step you can take in response to a vehicle crash is hiring a personal injury attorney.
