Every day, motor vehicle accidents impact the lives of innocent people across our state. In countless instances, victims require emergency medical attention due to their injuries. Although most motorists are careful and are considerate of other motorists sharing the road, we see many accidents take place due to driver error. In fact, over 80% of collisions involve some form of negligence.
. In many cases, victims are left with painful injuries from accidents caused by drunk drivers, distracted drivers, and those who choose to engage in reckless driving actions. These and other negligent actions leave countless innocent parties with broken bones, spinal cord injuries, internal organ damage, and other injuries that demand both immediate and long-term medical care.
