Driving is such a part of our lives that it’s easy to forget how dangerous the roads can be. According to federal statistics, more than 35,000 Americans are killed in auto accidents each year. Another 2.3 million are injured, some so seriously that their lives will never be the same. And the economic costs of these injuries, including high medical bills, loss of income and more, can throw an ordinary family into financial uncertainty. Victims of auto accidents have the right to claim compensation from the wrongdoers insurance company. But if the insurance company refuses to pay what it owes, don’t hesitate to contact a motor vehicle accident attorney.
