There is no tragedy that compares to losing a loved one – especially if the death was the result of another person’s negligence. In addition to the confusion and heartbreak, a wrongful death can put a family in financial jeopardy.
A car accident may last only a few seconds, but the injuries that result can last a lifetime. There are millions of collisions across the United States each year, and according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, many of them result in debilitating injuries and fatalities. In 2012, there were 30,000 fatal car crashes, and more than 1.6 million caused serious wounds.
Nevada roads host a multitude of car accidents each year, and a significant percentage of them are either fatal or cause serious injuries to the driver or passengers involved. According to the Nevada Department of Transportation, there were 235 fatal crashes on state roads in 2010, as well as more than 18,000 injury accidents. When counting crashes that caused property damage, the total accident count during that year exceeded 50,000.
Compared to nearby Vegas, over the border in Nevada; St George, Utah appears small and quiet. Nevertheless, St. George does seem to have more than its fair share of automobile accidents. Far too many people are not paying attention when making left hand turns on a yellow blinking signal.
Accidents Can Happen to Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere
No one really knows when or how the next accident will happen. For example, we suspect that the unfortunate couple who were killed by a large boulder while sitting inside their home had no idea that that day would be their last. Our prayers certainly go out to the family of those good folks. When we leave our homes each day, we don’t know if we will be injured by someone breaking the rules of society, whether it be someone speeding, texting while driving, or engaging in road rage. Because of this possibility, we encourage everyone to protect themselves, their families and their wealth by making sure they are adequately insured and have purchased insurance to protect themselves not just the other person involved in the accident. A good St. George Personal Injury Lawyer can help you with you pre-accident planning.
If you’ve been injured by someone breaking the rules of the road or society’s rules, for your own protection, you should consult with a good St. George Personal Injury Lawyer. You should do this before you do damage to your case.
