Imagine that you are driving down a street in your neighbourhood, as you have hundreds of times before. There’s nothing to suggest that this drive will be any different than in days, weeks, months, and years past. Everything is going well — until out of nowhere, you get t-boned by another vehicle as you pass through an intersection. As a result of the crash, you suffer serious injuries and your car is totalled. Thankfully, you survive. But the next few months will still be filled with pain and suffering.
Sadly, these exact circumstances happen countless times every year across the country. Motor vehicle accidents are very common, and they can happen in so many ways. Pedestrians can be struck by other vehicles, trucks can sideswipe other cars on the road, and motorcycles or bicyclists can be ignored on the streets, leading to devastating accidents.
No matter the exact circumstances in any crash, the message in the last sentence of the first paragraph above — “the next few months will still be filled with pain and suffering” — is what rings true. Every accident victim will have to deal with the trauma and injury of a serious car accident. When the dust settles and the investigation into their crash is complete, these victims should consider a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent drivers involved in their wreck.
