Car Accident Statistics

With the increasing number of cars on the roads each year, car accidents have become an unfortunate, but common sight.  On average there are over 6 million car accidents in the United States every year and more than 3 million people are injured due to car accidents; 2 million of these injuries are permanent.  There are over 40,000 deaths due to car accidents every year. Surprisingly, however, the number of car accident deaths has been decreasing in recent years. 

People between the ages of 15-24 are most severely affected by car accidents.  The majority of car accident victims are the drivers, then the passengers, pedestrians and lastly cyclists.  These injuries and deaths leave the victims and their families devastated and often not knowing where to turn to next.

The resulting costs after an auto accident can be overwhelming:  medical bills, ongoing physical therapy, long-term injury care, property damage.  With help, however, these expenses don’t have to be financially disastrous.  If you were involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to recover extensive money damages.  A good attorney will diligently break down the details of your case to show that you were a victim of negligence.  It is our job to show fault and ask the court to provide you with the money your family needs to recover from the accident.
