Every day, many people are injured on U.S. roads and highways because of vehicular accidents. There are pedestrian deaths, injuries, and deaths of passengers, and injuries and deaths to drivers. In all of these cases, the police investigate and try and pin the responsibility of the accident to one person or group of persons. Some of the accidents can be blamed on weather conditions, others on poor maintenance or manufacturing defects, some on distracted drivers and others of drunk drivers.
Police have issued tickets for the accident on Highway 34 near Adams after a 17 year old girl who was a passenger was injured. While the details of the accident and its cause are not yet clear, the victim can possibly claim personal injury compensation.
Simple Yet Important
Personal injury laws in the U.S. differ from state to state. So you need to work with someone who knows the laws of that state. That is not that difficult because any attorney who passed the bar for the laws of that state will obviously know the laws in that state. If they are working in that city or town then they will know the laws in that area.
Such cases also have a statute of limitation and as such those injured in such accidents need to file a case as soon as possible for compensation. While the statute of limitations is longer for children, it is best to contact a lawyer as soon as possible to protect your rights.
A personal accident attorney will be able to assess the case and file a suitable claim. The injured person will be compensated for the cost of medical treatment, loss of income during the recovery period, and also for the pain and suffering endured.
In many cases, one can also claim compensation of the expenses incurred to retain someone to carry our chores that one did before the accident – for instance, house work, gardening, and so on. While the injury and recovery can be difficult, the financial compensation can make the process easier to cope with.
