A car accident results when a motorized road vehicle of any kind collides with another vehicle, pedestrian, or bicycle. The cause may be the fact that the at-fault driver was not paying proper attention, was distracted (texting or otherwise), was confronted with road debris, or for any number of reasons discussed in the pages above. The results of these crashes can be devastating to the drivers of the vehicles, the passengers, as well as to all others involved, including family and friends. Damages often include property damage, personal injury, and even death. Personal injury damages often include past and future medical bills, past and future lost wages, past and future pain and suffering, loss of useful life, permanent injuries, and scarring. The vehicles involved may include cars, small trucks, semi-tractor trailer trucks, delivery vehicles, recreational vehicles (RV’s), moving vehicles, SUVs, passenger vans, motorcycles, and more. The biggest cause of MVA’s is operator error but may also include vehicle design, road design, driver distraction (texting or talking on a cell phone while driving), road debris, and DUI or other driver impairment (drugged driving). All of us have to look out for the road hazards on today’s roadways. No matter how safe you drive you may become a victim.
