Accidents tend to result in injuries that require medical assistance. This is where attorneys come in. Because without the correct legal assistance, you can end up with less funds that you require. 

Car Accident Risks are Rising

According to the Wall Street Journal, 10.4 percent more deaths in car accidents happened in the first six months of 2016 than in the first six months of 2015. There were around 17,000 deaths in car accidents from January to June. It is especially troubling that car accident deaths rose so much in 2016. Since between 2014 and 2015 there was also the biggest year-to-year increase in deaths since 1966.  Ironically, more accidents are happening because people are driving with better financial conditions in the current economic climate. Low gas prices and lower unemployment rates can yield situations where accidents can occur. Distracted driving and a variety of other dangerous driving behaviors are also contributing to rising crash rates.

What to Do After a Car Accident

If a car accident happens, you should contact a personal injury attorney right away. Your attorney can help you to understand whether you have an accident claim and can assist you in identifying who you should be making your claim against. With the help of your lawyer, you can also pursue an in-court or out-of-court case to try to get full and fair compensation for the full extent of damages caused by the car wreck.
