It's no secret that a car wreck can cause serious injuries -- broken bones, internal injuries, spinal problems and even injuries to the brain. This is why a car crash in West Virginia may have major long-term consequences for a person who suffers injuries. Financial damages certainly can't eradicate the physical and emotional trauma associated with injury accidents, but they might be helpful for addressing emotional distress as well as pain and suffering. It also can help to cover any medical costs and other monetary losses stemming from the tragic situation.
Highway safety is a priority for West Virginia’s legislators. The possibility of an injury accident from distracted, reckless, or negligent drivers puts citizens at risk every time they venture out onto the state’s streets and highways. This is especially true in our high tech society where many people own a smart phone and cannot resist texting or connecting to the internet while driving. It takes a distracted driver only seconds to cause a car collision by not paying attention. Moreover, many people fail to use their seat belts or properly strap their children into child safety seats. It is a terrible tragedy when people suffer broken bones, internal injuries, or a brain injury in a car accident that could easily have been prevented by a driver who just took a few extra minutes to observe the rules of the road or utilize common sense precautions.
