Have you been injured in a freeway accident?
Don’t be a victim of the insurance companies.
Freeways are an especially dangerous place, and because of that, many accidents occur there. Whether it is an accident involving just one car or a pile-up involving 10 cars, freeways are where some of the most serious car accidents happen. Depending on the circumstances of an accident, serious, or even fatal, injuries can occur.
Because vehicles travel at higher speeds on freeways, accidents tend to be much more damaging than those on roads with lower speed limits. If you have been involved in a freeway accident, it is important that you contact an accident attorney immediately. The attorneys at Bighorn Law specialize in accident and injury litigation, and know how to get you the compensation that you deserve.
As with any accident, it is vital to seek medical attention immediately following an accident. Even if you do not think that your injuries are that serious, you still need to be checked out by a medical professional. If you decide to file a lawsuit, you will need to have medical documentation to prove that you were injured; otherwise, you will not be compensated. While the cost of medical treatment may seem daunting, never let that stop you from seeking treatment; Bighorn Law will work to get you reimbursed later.
Most Common Causes of Freeway Accidents
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, there were 30,800 fatal motor vehicle crashes in the United States in 2012. With these kind of numbers, it is essential to be aware of the various hazards that can cause vehicle collisions. One of the most common causes of freeway accidents is poor visibility from fog or precipitation. While accidents caused by weather are sometimes difficult to avoid, many other accidents are caused by driver negligence. For instance, if a driver is using a cell phone or is driving recklessly, his or her lack of attention can cause serious accidents. And because drivers travel at higher speeds, other drivers that are coming up on an accident may not have adequate time to brake in order to avoid the accident. If this happens, multiple vehicles may be involved. The more individuals injured in a pile-up, the greater legal burden the negligent driver will have.
