Motor Vehicle Accidents


According to the World Health Organization, motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Driving-related injuries are often the result of recklessness and negligence on the roads due to distracted or aggressive driving, fatigue, poor weather conditions, alcohol and drug use, defective vehicle parts, or a disregard to traffic laws. The impacts of a motor vehicle accident can have life-altering effects to the victims involved, and injuries may range from minor bruises and cuts to concussions, paralysis, disfigurement or even wrongful death.  


Motor vehicle accidents are classified into two forms: auto accidents and motorcycle accidents. In the unfortunate event of a motor vehicle accident, victims may be entitled to compensation for their pain and suffering, medical bills and prescriptions, lost wages or any others costs related to the damages sustained in the accident.
