Auto accidents negatively impact the lives of tens of thousands of people each year. In fact, they are one of the leading causes of serious injuries and death in the U.S. At The Baxter Law Firm our seasoned New Jersey auto accident lawyers have successfully represented auto accident victims, and we know how much trauma is inflicted on individuals and families who have experienced property loss and injuries that so often accompany auto accidents.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about two and a half million people are injured in auto accidents every year in the U.S. Shockingly, motor vehicle collisions are the cause of more deaths among children and young adults than any other single cause. Americans drive millions of miles and spend thousands of hours on the streets, roads and freeways that cover our nation. For the most part, these hours are spent uneventfully. However, about 43,000 Americans die each year in some type of motor vehicle crash, including auto accidents.
The cost to the nation of all these auto accidents comes to more than $150 billion per year, but the costs to an individual or a family involved in an auto accident can be even more overwhelming. Aside from the cost of repairing an auto, SUV or truck that is damaged in an auto or truck accident, accident victims usually face a slew of other financial losses as well, including:
In addition to financial losses, people who are injured, or who lose a loved one in an auto accident also suffer devastating emotional and physical damages including: permanent disabilities or disfigurement, loss of ability to engage in daily activities and mental anguish.
Victims of car crashes may be eligible to recover compensation for their losses. An experienced auto accident attorney will thoroughly evaluate the accident to find out the exact cause. After determining liability for the accident, he/she will be able to fight on your behalf and recover compensation from any responsible parties. If a person is killed in a car collision, a qualified auto accident lawyer for auto accident victims will be able to determine who is liable. If the accident was caused by another driver’s negligence or recklessness, or a defective auto part, the family will be eligible to seek compensation from the liable parties by filing a wrongful death lawsuit. Individuals who have suffered from their involvement in an auto accident have legal rights that will be protected and upheld by a skilled, aggressive New Jersey accident lawyer from our firm. Losses due to an auto accident may be eligible for financial compensation. Contact our offices to schedule a complimentary consultation with an attorney today.
