There are few things more devastating than having a car crash. Your world is turned upside down, you are injured, sometimes permanently, and you don’t know where to turn.  Not only that, but you have to often fight against the people who caused your accident and who injured you.

If you have been injured in a car accident, you are not alone. According to , the statistics from 2013 reported that:

  • One individual got killed every 2 hours 36 minutes.
  • One individual was hurt every 2 minuets and 16 seconds
  • There was a reported crash every 1 minute, 11 seconds.

In Lubbock and the surrounding area, there have been some recent serious accidents, some of which seriously injuring or killing the occupants.  Unfortunately, the people who cause accidents such as these often will get off without paying a cent or paying the bare minimum.

Hiring a personal injury lawyer is about a lot more than taking revenge on someone who injured you. It’s about being compensated for your injuries and your pain.  The sad truth is that not only do you have to fight against the person who caused the accident, but you often also have to fight against your .

Having a personal injury lawyer can make the process much easier for you and your loved ones. It’s also important to remember that not all crashes involve two automobiles. For example, a nine year old boy was recently injured in Odessa. The boy was lucky – he survived the accident and his condition was last listed as fair.

But he is one of the lucky ones.  According to the CDC, almost 1 in 5 children ages 5-9 that were killed because of a traffic accident were walking.  But imagine what would have happened if that little boy had been confined to a wheelchair or he had lost one of his limbs? Who would be paying his medical bills? Who will be paying his medical bills? A good  would stand up for the boy’s rights and make sure that he received what was due to him.

Having a personal injury lawyer is not just about getting money or sticking it to the person who injured you. It’s about getting the help that you need to take care of yourself and your family while you are unable to work. It’s about showing the person that injured you that they did wrong and that they need to be held responsible for what they did.

Don’t just think about yourself the next time that you are injured in an accident. Think about your family, think about the future, and think about the next person that the driver might hit. If you choose to hire a lawyer and go after them for your injuries, they might think twice about speeding the next time. They may just drive more carefully and realize that what they did has consequences.
