For most Americans, auto accidents are one of the most common threats of daily life. In any urban area, the risk of getting involved in a car accident goes up even more. Unfortunately, even the safest driver can be placed at risk when sharing the road with incompetent, distracted, or otherwise negligent drivers.
The statistics are staggering, and despite recent improvements in car crash ratings and public awareness of auto safety, car accidents remain one of the biggest causes of death in the United States. Every year more than 2.5 million Americans are injured, and over 40,000 killed in traffic accidents. In San Diego alone, there were over 15,000 car accidents in 2013 according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Many severe auto accidents take place at high speeds and on major roads like Highway 8 going in and out of El Cajon.
The severity of an auto accident depends on a variety of factors including safety belt use, road conditions, auto repair issues, and time of day. In just a moment, the occupants of a vehicle that sustains an auto accident can see their trip turn from routine to devastating. The injuries suffered from auto accidents are as varied as their victims. Everything from bruises and scrapes to broken bones, whiplash, facial disfigurement, paralysis, traumatic brain injury, and death can await an auto accident victim. And gaining competent medical treatment is often only the beginning of the victim’s long struggle for justice and compensation for issues such as ongoing medical care, pain and suffering, necessary psychiatric intervention, lost wages, and the need for vocational rehabilitation.
But it’s not just car accidents that leave El Cajon residents in pain, disabled and unable to work.
Accidents can happen anywhere – walking across or driving down the street, at the park or a construction site, in a boat or bus, etc. And you can take all the precautions necessary to avoid them, but you can’t control the actions of others.
