Legal Aspects of Car Crashes
A common American person files only one case of collision in 18 years. It is good because a large number of drivers tend to drive their vehicles daily and a driver needs to be involved in three accidents to lose his driving license.
America has the most number of registered vehicles than any other country of the world. There are roughly 254 million registered vehicles which exceeds the number of drivers in America. Americans also tend to drive more as compared to other countries and as a result avoiding accidents is almost impossible. According to National safety council there are approximately 10 million car crashes every year which includes all big and small crashes.Mostly in crashes, only a few people actually get hurt but still the property damages occur widely. Once in every five accidents, someone gets hurt who requires medical expenses. These cases can be put in a civil court for property damages, small injuries as well as big injuries.
If no one is injured the case could easily settled by paying expenses or contacting the relative insurance company.If injuries are of such nature that one could recover in just a few days and there is nothing more than cuts and scrapes and medical expenses are less than 1,000$ than it's a minor case. This can be settled by paying the medical bills. However, if the injuries are serious and can cause a permanent disability then it is necessary to contact a lawyer to manage the case.
