Over 1.5 million people are injured in car crashes each year, according to the United States Department of Transportation. Many of these injuries are minor, and can be treated at the scene, without a hospital visit. Unfortunately, many of these injuries are much more serious, with some of them resulting in permanent damage to the brain, resulting in a lifetime of medical bills. In many cases, the medical bills incurred far exceed the limits of auto insurance policies, creating a tremendous financial hardship for someone who may have done nothing wrong except to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. People who are seriously injured by the negligence of other drivers in accidents may be entitled to compensation for these expenses.

About 5,000 of those deaths are pedestrians or cyclists who have been caught up in car accidents. Obviously, pedestrians and bicyclists are far more vulnerable to injury or death than those protected by the body of an automobile, with seat belts, air bags, and other safety measures. The number of pedestrians and cyclists killed annually represents about one out of every 6 traffic fatalities. This shocking statistic highlights the need for pedestrians to be constantly aware of their surroundings, but also for drivers to keep an eye out for pedestrians at all times.

While cars crashing into buildings are not nearly as common as other types of car accidents, they are incredibly dangerous. Obviously, a person sitting on the sofa watching television in his or her living room is not expecting a vehicle to come through the front wall, and the injuries suffered can be catastrophic. Additionally, the people inside the car can face terrible injuries in the crash. And it goes without saying that the damage to the building will be extremely costly to repair. While this is one of the reasons that insurance exists, in some cases, your insurance company may actually require you to file a legal claim against the person who caused the damage.

91-Year-Old Woman Is Taking Action Against Her Insurance Company

 Posted on March 29, 2013 in Uncategorized

A 91-year-old woman who lost her home in the Waldo Canyon Fire is taking action against her insurance company and the agent who wrote her policy, according to the Denver Post. Sometime before the fire, the woman was given a quote from another insurance company, and went to her agent to see if he could match the quote. She wanted him to raise her deductible as a way of bringing down her monthly premium, but instead he lowered her fire coverage. As a result, when she lost her home to fire, she was unable to afford to have the home rebuilt. She believes that the agent wrote the policy negligently, and has sued him and the insurance company for damages.

When someone behaves negligently, it means that they act in a way that no reasonable person would, or that they fail to act in a way that any reasonable person would. When claiming that a professional acted negligently in performing his or her job, that person is held to a standard of what a reasonable person who is appropriately trained for that job would do. In medicine, for example, there is a standard of care that medical professionals must meet. The question isn't whether any reasonable person would do what the doctor did, it is whether a reasonable doctor would do what the doctor did. The same kind of test may apply to car accidents; would a reasonable licensed driver do what a driver did that caused an accident.

These accidents are obviously unexpected, and sometimes result in extremely serious injuries to passengers in the car as well as occupants of the buildings.

According to the Century Council, 127 Coloradans were killed in drunk driving accidents in 2010. Of those 127 Coloradans, 18 of them were killed in crashes involving a drunk driver under the age of 21. Some people debate the validity of drunk driving statistics, arguing that someone with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% isn't "really" drunk. One statistic put forth by the Century Council is that more then three quarters of drunk driving fatalities involved a driver with a BAC of 0.15%. This is just about double the legal limit. The good news here is that the number of drunk driving fatalities has trended significantly downward since the year 2000.
