Car Accident Statistics & the Lasting Effects of Personal Injuries
According to Driving Tests, “Around 2 million drivers in car accidents experience permanent injuries every year. 66% of traffic fatalities are caused by aggressive driving. 37% of aggressive driving incidents involve a firearm. In 2014, 0.7% of drivers admitted to regularly blocking other vehicles from changing lanes. 0.3% of drivers admitted to regularly cutting off other vehicles deliberately. 0.1% of drivers admitted to regularly bumping or ramming other vehicles intentionally.” If you have been run off the road or cut off and have gotten into a serious accident as a consequence, you may be able to sue the other person with the help of an attorney and ensure you receive compensation for your damages.
Per Family Doctor, “for most people who are in a traffic accident, the overwhelming feelings go away over time. [But] sometimes those feelings don’t go away, or they become stronger. They can change the way you think and act. Strong feelings that stay with you for a long time and get in the way of everyday life are signs of post-traumatic stress. If you have post-traumatic stress after a car accident, you may have some of the following problems: an ongoing, general feeling of uneasiness, anxiety about driving or riding vehicles, not wanting to have medical tests or procedures done, irritability, or excessive worry or anger, nightmares or trouble sleeping, a feeling that you’re not connected to other events or people, ongoing memories of the accident that you can’t stop or control.”
If you or a loved one have through a car accident, truck accident, or any other traumatic event that caused you personal and you believe the accident was brought one by a negligent party, we recommend contacting a personal injury attorney in Omaha, Nebraska at Rensch & Rensch.
