San Diego Car Accidents Cause Thousands of Injuries Per Year
The number of injuries that occur in car accidents in the city of San Diego alone is astounding. Between the years of 2000 and 2009, a total of 12,000 to 14,000 injuries occurred during each calendar month. That means that each year an average of anywhere between 1,200 and 1,400 injuries happened on a monthly basis. Friday is the most dangerous day to be on the road, with over 25,000 accidents having occurred on Fridays between 2000 and 2009. The current decade is faring no better.
What If You Have Been Injured?
While some car accidents may seem minor at first, the injuries should not be dismissed. A whiplash injury may only be sore for a few days, but could have long standing effects resulting in migraines, vertigo, and other ongoing health conditions. A concussion can result in post-concussion syndrome. Some injuries cause missed work and result in tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills. Then there is vehicle damage, which insurance companies desperately try to shortchange people for. You need help in order to receive what you are owed.
