According to statistics, one out of every 18 drivers in the state was involved in a traffic accident in 2018.

Even the most cautious motorists run the risk of being involved in a serious accident. After being wrongfully injured by a reckless driver, it is critical for those injured in a car accident to pursue the compensation they deserve.
