No one expects to be hurt and the other party will take on the responsibility to make you whole again as they are the first assumption. Sadly, that’s seldom the reality. Statistically, by no fault of your own, you or someone you know is more likely to be hurt or damaged and sometimes it is a personal injury lawyer who is required to help ensure that the responsible party is kept responsible for their acts. Feel free to visit their website at Flagler Personal Injury Group for more details.
Three primary reasons are attributed to 75 percent of all deaths in the United States among adolescents and young adults between the ages of 15 and 24; accidental injury, suicide and homicide. Nearly half of those involved in unintended incidents (45 percent) are the result of a motor vehicle accident. These figures are staggering, not only because of the high number of young people dying, but because of the high number of young people who are involved and survive in these traffic accidents, mostly due to the fault of someone else with permanent injuries or disabilities.
The three million employees who are hurt or killed at work every year are another group of people who also suffer injuries. This amounts to an average of 18 wounded or killed employees a day. The daily news is full of reports of miners dying in explosions in failing mines and oil rig employees blown up, but even workers in safer jobs can be injured or killed on the job and they depend on their employer to do the right thing when they are injured.
Unfortunately, most corporate employers measure the loss of human life and harm to their cost of doing business, and even OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) may have a hard time implementing those corporations’ worker safety regulations.
The liable party for personal injuries will of course, step up to pay for medical bills, lost earnings and other economic damages due to personal damage without lawsuits in an ideal world, but we don’t live in a perfect world and the injured party frequently bears the cost of personal injury.
