Auto Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), someone is involved in a car accident every ten seconds in the United States.  This high frequency of car accidents makes motor vehicle accidents the most common personal injury cases in the courts today.  In most states, motor vehicle accidents are covered by negligence law, although some states have laws (known as “no-fault” laws) that state that the driver that caused the accident is irrelevant to the case.  Generally, however, motor vehicle drivers have to use the amount of care that a reasonable person would employ under the circumstances.
