Sometimes when you fall down, you might not be able to get up, especially when a serious injury such as a head injury or broken hip occurs.
If you were badly injured on someone else’s property then you may be facing a painful physical recovery. The hospital bills alone will be difficult to manage. You may also be subject to missed wages from work. It can be tempting to file a lawsuit against the business or owner of the property where you were injured.
Almost every driver has been in a car crash. It may not be an regular occurrence, but it’s commonplace enough that people don’t always remember how serious the effects can be. A 2011 study by the auto insurance industry estimates that the average driver will file a claim for a crash every 17.9 years. For someone who drives from their late teenage years into retirement, that averages four or more crashes in a lifetime—not including your experience as a passenger.
