The odds that you will someday be in an automobile accident are incredibly high. In the first six months of 2015 alone, there were nearly 2.3 million serious accidents in the United States with an economic impact of about $152 billion.
Not all accidents, of course, are serious. If you are lucky, you will escape your car wreck with just a few bumps and bruises and a dented fender.
If you are not as fortunate, a car accident can result in serious, even permanent, injuries. This, in turn, can lead to dire financial consequences such as large medical bills and income lost while recovering from your injuries. In some cases, the ability to earn the same income as the accident is greatly diminished because of the severity of the injuries.
At Morton & Gettys, our attorneys have represented clients in a wide variety of cases stemming from auto wrecks. We’ve helped those who have been the victim of negligent and reckless driving, including speeding, failure to yield right-of-way or to obey traffic signals, or driving aggressively. We also have experience in car wrecks due to impaired driving, whether the impairment is due to DUI or drugs. Distracted driving due to phone use or texting is a rising problem, and we are familiar with the intricacies of those cases as well.
Regardless of the cause or type of motor vehicle accident, injured victims often face long-term health problems that require extensive hospitalization or on-going treatment. A return to work or school can be delayed, adding another layer of complication to their lives. When the victims are children, such as one young client who was struck by a car while walking home from school, serious injuries can lead to a lifetime of expenses.
Our attorneys have the skills and experience to help injured victims through any of these situations, so they that do not have to fight the insurance companies alone.
