Car accidents are dangerous accidents, but car accidents that happen at highway speeds are that much more so. In fact, the higher the speed involved, the more likely it is that an accident will happen in the first place and the more likely it is that the accident will be fatal. As such, auto accidents on the highway are some of the most dangerous traffic accidents out there.
If another driver’s negligence leaves you injured in a highway accident, 388CEDA offers comprehensive medical services that include pain management, and we can also recommend an experienced car accident attorney if you request that we do so.
The majority of highway auto accidents are caused by driver negligence. Whenever a motorist gets behind the wheel of a car, he or she takes on an immense responsibility that includes adhering to the rules of the highway he or she is traveling on, and failure to live up to this important responsibility can lead to exceptionally dangerous accidents. Unfortunately, driver negligence comes in wide-ranging forms.
Driver distraction continues to play a role in far too many accidents on our highways, and one of the deadliest distractions out there is texting and other smartphone activities. When a driver takes to his or her phone to read or send a text while tooling down the highway, it amounts to about five seconds of pure distraction (on average), which translates to driving blind for about the length of a football field, and that is a terrifying thought.
Traffic on our highways is often quite congested and tends to run at top speeds. When you combine these factors with driver impairment, it is a frightening proposition. Driver impairment often gets top billing in statistics related to fatal highway accidents.
A driver who nods off behind the wheel at highway speeds puts everyone on the road at increased risk of being seriously injured – or worse. Drowsy drivers experience physical and cognitive deficits that are very similar to those experienced by drunk drivers.
We say that speed kills for one very good reason and that is that excess speed is often deadly. Highway speed limits are set fairly high, but they are intended for ideal driving conditions only. Motorists who blast past the set limit or who refuse to take the condition of the road and/or the deleterious effects of bad weather and more into consideration greatly increase the odds that dangerous highway accidents will happen.
The damages associated with auto accidents on the highway can be overwhelming. Obtaining compensation that covers your losses in their entirety can play a significant role in your ability to fully heal, which makes carefully accounting for your total losses critical.
If you’ve been injured in a car accident on the highway, you will likely suffer serious injuries that require extensive medical care and attention, which can include any of the following:
