Car Accident Injuries: Our law firm is currently working with a young lady who was involved in a car accident, resulting in injuries. It all started when she was driving with her friend westbound on Agoura Road, in the #2 lane. The defendant, who was exiting a store parking lot, failed to yield the right of way to our client/driver. This resulted in the defendant’s vehicle crashing into our client’s vehicle causing bodily injuries to both our client/driver and client/passenger requiring medical treatment.
In 2012, more than 2.5 million Americans went to the emergency department for crash-related injuries [A]. Car accidents can result in brain, head, neck, spinal cord, back, limbs, facial, internal, and even psychological injuries. Americans incurred lifetime medical costs of 18 billion in 2012 [A]. Although you can take action to prevent a car accident and its associated injuries, such as wearing your seatbelt, car accidents are unfortunately sometimes unavoidable. Always remember to be careful and aware while driving!
