Chances are, you or someone you know has been involved in a serious car accident. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, at least one car accident happens every minute in the United States. In recent years, there are more than 6 million car accidents annually in the United States, and more than 3 million people are injured. In the last few years, fatalities have topped 40,000 annually.
Distracted driving is a fast-growing cause of car accidents. Distracted driving is driving while doing any activity that takes a driver's attention away from the road, such as talking or texting on the phone, eating or drinking, or adjusting the radio or navigation. It is estimated that there are nearly 400,000 injuries from distracted driving every year across the country, and it is estimated to cause more than 3,000 deaths each year.
In Rhode Island alone, 656 people died in motor vehicle accidents between 2006 and 2015. In Massachusetts, 3,682 people died in motor vehicle accidents during the same period. In both states, countless others were seriously hurt as a result of negligent or distracted drivers.
The Aftermath Of Accidents
But what happens after an accident? Insurance companies work hard to delay compensation and deny liability on even the most straightforward claims. Instead of putting your health first, insurance companies focus on maximizing their bottom dollar – even if that means minimizing your claim and future health. If you or someone you know has been injured in a car or truck accident, our lawyer at Fayan Law, P.C., can help you deal with insurance companies and their attorneys and claims adjusters. We can help you maximize your compensation for the injuries you have suffered.
Commercial Motor Vehicle Accidents
Commercial vehicle accidents are motor vehicle accidents involving 18-wheelers, delivery box trucks, buses or other types of company vehicles. It is important to hire a lawyer who is familiar with commercial vehicle accident cases because different guidelines and regulations apply to different commercial drivers.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration publishes safety regulations that govern most aspects of commercial trucking, from the number of hours a truck driver can be behind the wheel per day to how accident investigations are performed. Our attorney can help with the complex aspects of commercial vehicle accidents, ensure your claim is filed in a timely fashion and help obtain compensation.
