Auto accidents can happen to anyone. As explained earlier the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration reported that in 2009 there were over 206 million licensed drivers in America. These drivers travel over 2.9 trillion miles per year. Every year more and more drivers hit the road. More drivers and more cars equals more accidents. In 2009 the odds of you being in an automobile accident were 5 percent one out of 20. No matter how skillful or careful you are as a driver the odds are that you’ll be involved in an accident. There are other drivers who are speeding, eating, texting, talking on their cellphone. This in addition to poor weather conditions, road construction and road debris all add to the likelihood of you being involved in an accident.
If you have been injured in any type of auto accident, including a hit-and-run car accident, you may be eligible to collect compensation from any negligent parties. If you have sustained any kind of injury, you should hold the negligent parties responsible for any loss of income and medical expenses.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that more than three million people are injured each year in motor vehicle accidents across the United States. Injuries vary based on the circumstances of the accident, but many car accident victims typically suffer from similar types of injuries, such as:
Soft Tissue Injuries: This type of injury involves damage to muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissues. As one of the most common types of injuries from car accidents, it typically results in serious neck and back pain. Whiplash is also a common injury that plagues many car accident victims and is caused by sudden movements of the head and neck.
Head Injuries: There are different types of head injuries that range from minor to serious injuries. Sudden stops or changes in direction will usually cause the head to move in unnatural ways, leading to extreme strain in the neck and back muscles. When sudden movements happen, the brain can also collide with the skull and lead to concussions or even brain damage.
Scrapes and Cuts: During a collision, everyday objects such as phones, purses, and coffee mugs can become dangerous objects that can cause serious scrapes and cuts. In most severe cases, these cuts can lead to serious blood loss and require stitches.
Chest Injuries: Common types of chest injuries include broken ribs or internal organ damage. This is typical for drivers because of the impact with the steering wheel. In addition, strong bruising in the chest can also be caused by seat belts or shoulder harnesses.
Arm and Leg Injuries: Arm and leg injuries often occur when a person's arms and legs are propelled against the car's doors. In high-speed crashes, the force of impact can lead to bruises, sprains, and even cuts.
