Minnesota & Nebraska Drunk Driving Accident Lawyers
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the number of people injured in auto accidents in the course of year totals more than two million people. Tens of thousands of those are killed in fatal auto accidents. Unfortunately, many of those accidents are caused because someone is being negligent because they are distracted in some way. They may be putting on makeup, adjusting the radio, texting, talking on their cell phones, or do something else that takes their attention away from the road.
The NHTSA says that 16 percent of fatal auto crashes and 21 percent of all crashes that cause injury are the result of distracted driving. If you or a love done is a part of these statistics, it is important to contact an experienced car accidents attorney as soon as possible to discuss if you have a case.
