So What Is A Traffic Accident Anyways?

First, traffic accidents typically involve two or more wheeled vehicles striking each other or hitting another fixed or moving object. Sometimes, there are single-vehicle accidents where a poorly designed, maintained, or manufactured small car catches fire, the brakes fail, or in cases, for example, of sudden acceleration.

But most single-vehicle accidents happen when a passenger car’s tire falls into a pothole or runs over dangerous debris.

Personal injury lawyers usually help traffic accident victims when they require money to pay for lost wages, lost contracts, and medical bills. An efficient and appropriately trained accident lawyer can also help customers recover what we call intangibles. Intangibles are things like love, happiness, and even sexual relations.

Sometimes when a person is badly hurt, they lose these pleasurable things that bring us all happiness and joy in our lives. Because of this, courts and politicians have crafted and shaped negligence laws. Before negligence laws, people would have feuds, duels, and even fight long-term wars seeking a “pound of flesh” or “revenge.” But it got so bad that innocent people were dying. And all of this back and forth put a negative strain on the local economies and law enforcement capabilities of ancient England and early America.

In time common law developed into this money for injuries type of situation. Luckily, there are mandatory auto insurance laws. People can also get extra insurance coverage if the person who hits your car lets their insurance lapse or never had any to begin with. The long and short is that Ehline Law Firm Personal Injury Attorneys, APLC uses these laws to recover our client’s money for what rules call “damages.”
