Busy highways are known for being some of the most dangerous places on our roads where accidents happen more commonly than other accidents. In just one recent year’s time in the entirety of the U.S., over 2.5 million accidents took place due to the reckless acts of others, many of these on busy highways. These accidents happen in the blink of an eye when drivers are not paying close attention to the roads around them. If you have been hurt in a collision, you should always have a legal advocate by your side.
