A car accident is a collision involving an automobile and anything that causes damage to the automobile, including other automobiles, telephone poles, buildings and trees. Sometimes a car accident may also refer to an automobile striking a human or animal. Car accidents – also called traffic collisions, auto accidents, road accidents, personal injury collisions, motor vehicle accidents and crashes – kill an estimated 42,000 people in the United States each year, and injure over three million.
In addition to car accidents, a personal injury attorney can help if you have been injured in a truck or motorcycle accident. While the dangers posed to motorcycle riders are obvious, cases involving injuries resulting from a trucking accident can be extremely complex. Laws and regulations are specifically designed to protect motorists from the negligence of the truck companies and/or truck drivers. A person who is injured in a truck accident, or has lost a loved one due to wrongful death caused by a truck accident, can sue the persons or party at fault.
