Thousands of people slip and fall all over the United States ever day. Some of these people walk away with little or no injuries, while others end up severely hurt. In fact, more than a million people each year seek treatment in emergency rooms due to slip-and-fall injuries. They happen both to people who are at work and to people visiting a store or walking down the sidewalk.
A motor vehicle crash instantly stops your day. It might result in injuries that require treatment, or someone could suffer fatal injuries. As someone who is a victim in a motor vehicle accident, it's your right to receive medical care and other assistance. Typically, the person who caused the crash becomes responsible for those expenses.
Distracted driving has been a problem since long before cellphones started adding to the incidents. In general, distracted driving is the cause of approximately 25 percent of all car accident fatalities. It is more than likely that you have seen a distracted driver or possibly even been the victim of one. Whether or not you have been involved in a wreck with a distracted driver, it can help you to avoid future accidents by knowing what causes this behavior.
