The terrifying truth lawyers know about the frequency of car accidents
One of Weitz & Luxenberg’s experienced car accident attorneys will be the first to tell you just how common negligent driving is on today's roads, and how often such irresponsible disregard for the rules erupts in a traumatic accident.
Approximately 43,000 people are killed in car accidents each year in the United States, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics, equivalent to the population of a mid-sized American city. The NHTSA also reports that most drivers engage in activities that take their attention away from the road, such as talking with other passengers and using a cell phone, which is illegal in many states. Other significant factors in accidents include speeding, failure to adjust for inclement weather, and drunk driving, which accounted for 35% of traffic fatalities among drivers ages 21 to 24 alone.
Just imagine one of these negligent drivers taking his eyes off the road to fiddle with the radio and drifting into your lane. Through no fault of your own, you are now bereft of your health, freedom, savings and income. The attorneys at Weitz & Luxenberg believe you are owed compensation from the guilty party.
