Result-Driven, Focused on Your Recovery

After losing a loved one, help is there for you

Car accidents happen in many places. It may seem like it's hard to predict where one could happen, but the reality is that there are some specific places where they're more likely to happen to you. Did you know, for example, that crashes are more likely when you're driving close to your home?

The reason is simple: People feel more comfortable driving near their homes, and they may get distracted or be less alert, which then leads to an accident. Individuals traveling close to home may also not use their seat belts, which could lead to more serious injuries if a crash does occur.

Another interesting fact about crashes is that fatal crashes are more likely to happen between 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. In 2013, 16 percent of all fatal crashes took place during that time period. This may be due to the fact that schools let out around that time, or it could be because of the sun sitting lower in the sky during that time of day, which makes it more likely for drivers to be blinded by glare. It's also possible that crashes could be more likely due to rush hour, when people get off work and head home for the day.

It's difficult to lose a loved one in a crash, and with the combination of stress from your own injuries, you may not be sure where to start. Your attorney can handle the legal aspects of your case, so you can focus on your recovery as well as taking care of your loved ones.
