The Simple Fact Is, Accidents Can And Do Happen

Car accidents occur with a rather startling frequency, statistics show that in the US between more than 38000 people die every year due to motoring related incidents in the US, (That's approximately one fatality every 13 minutes on US roads). Global figures are even more stark, due to the poorer infrastructure and varying levels of health and safety in different countries and cultures. On average roughly 3700 people in the world die every single day in road traffic incidents. An approximate 20-40 million people suffer serious enough injuries to warrant medical attention, in the US that figure is around 3-4 million injuries per annum. It is important to know of some of the options available to you, should you or someone you know ever be in such an incident.

The legalities of the whole process can be very intimidating to a lot of people, and many people simply are not aware that they have options open to them, if only they are aware and willing to seek them out. For example, there are solicitors who specialize in car accident cases, and others who specialize in the field of personal injury. Therefore whether you or your vehicle  sustains any damage you should ensure that you give yourself the best possible chance to secure any compensation or reimbursement etc that you are entitled to. 

If you are involved in a car accident then one thing you could potentially do if you are able is to make a record of everything which happened before, during and after the incident, and take photographs, be thorough, many angles etc. The pictures especially could be worth their weight in gold when used as evidence further down the line when making any potential claims.

Who Do I Contact To Find Out More

By contacting a reputable solicitors firm such as Kinnet, Fernandez and Boire who specialize in such matters, you or someone you know can rest assured, safe in the knowledge that you will have a team of experts working collaboratively for your best interests. If they assess you as having a rightful and legal position with regards to making a claim, then they will take you through the process. 

In the UK there tends to be a uniform ‘3 year rule’, whereby a person has up to three years to make a claim, the most common claim being for ‘negligence’. In the USA the time limits allowed can vary from State to State so it is worth looking into, especially if you have been in a car accident or suffered a personal injury in recent years. 

Most Lawyers will only charge a fee if they secure a payout for you, and so there is no harm in at looking into it. As mentioned, many people are put off by the complexities of the legal system. Many people are simply not aware that by entering a simple search online, you can easily find out more. Most firms will have websites and some will offer assistance online, as well as the usual methods such as email and phone numbers. 

It has never been easier to find good legal representation.
