Post-Traumatic Stress Symptoms As A Crash-Related Serious Personal Injury

For years, serious physical personal injury remained a primary legal focus of lawyer cases involving survivors of motor vehicle accidents (MVAs). The accumulation of state information followed a like format. In the 2012 Alabama Crash Facts data report in-depth MVA crash facts pertained to the likes of:

Common And Serious Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries

Motor vehicle accidents make up the largest proportion of personal injury claims nationwide. In 2012, there were 5.6 million motor vehicle accidents, 1.6 million of which involved injuries. Injuries vary between cases, which is why it is vital to get an opinion from a doctor. Furthermore, those who have been injured in a motor vehicle accident should consult an experienced car accident attorney to secure the compensation to which they are entitled.

Statistics on Personal Injury Pre-trial Settlements

Only about five percent of personal injuries cases in the U.S. go to trial, meaning that up to 95% of such cases are given out of court settlements. Of these (cases that go to trial), 90 percent end up losing, meaning that the plaintiff loses out on compensation. Those who win cases that go to trial only do so when the case is brought before a trial judge rather than a jury. Trial judges also seem to provide higher compensation than a jury.

The higher risk of highway deaths when trucks are involved

Larger motor vehicles, especially trucks can create a greater safety risk for other drivers on the highway. Especially for passenger cars, sedans and other smaller motor vehicles. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation's 2014 FARS ("Fatality Analysis Reporting System") report, one out of every ten highway deaths were involved in a truck-related accident. This means that when a truck is part of a car crash, the risk of death for drivers and passengers goes up. A troubling statistic but the reality of highway safety.
