Driving is a necessary part of daily life for many people in West Virginia. People can get so used to driving frequently that they forget just how dangerous it can be. But the stark reality is that auto accidents cause tens of thousands of deaths in the United States each year, as well as many more serious injuries. Accordingly, drivers should always think about safety when they get behind the wheel of an automobile.
Although all drivers have a legal responsibility to operate their vehicles safely, too many drivers shirk that duty. In today's busy world, it can be tempting to multi-task behind the wheel; talking on the phone while driving, and texting and driving are two common examples. But when one is driving it is not the time to be concentrating on anything other than the road.
The attorneys at James F. Humphreys and Associates help car accident victims get the compensation they are entitled to when a negligent driver injures them in an auto accident. When a driver lets other things get in the way of safe driving, it can cause severe injuries and death to other people. Our law firm pursues these negligent drivers so that the victims can recover damages for medical expenses and other accident-related losses.
Following a serious car accident, a negligent driver's insurance company will often try to settle claims by injured victims as quickly as possible. But victims and their family members should consider all of their legal options before agreeing to anything.
