In an instant, a car crash can change everything about the lives of victims and their families. Car, truck, SUV and motorcycle accidents and crashes are the leading cause of death for Americans aged 8 to 34, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration; they cause one death every 12 to 15 minutes and injure more than 2.5 million people each year. About half of those injured come away with permanent disabilities like brain damage, paralysis and other injuries that rob victims of their functions, their independence and their futures.
If you’ve lost a loved one or sustained a very serious injury in a car accident because of another driver’s carelessness, you have the right to hold that driver responsible for his or her actions. Dorrity Law Office can’t make things the way they were before the crash, but we can help compensate you for the terrible, unexpected losses the crash caused. A car accident lawsuit can also help pay high medical bills and other costs caused by the accident, and provide financial support for those who’ve lost an income to an injury or an unexpected death. And in some cases, it can help you prevent the same tragedy from happening to others.
