The Rising Numbers of Accidents in the United States
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 motorcycle accident.
Thus, the most valuable step you can take in response to a crash is hiring a personal injury attorney.
