Auto accidents, whether from a car striking another car, a pedestrian or property, are on the rise, with the National Highway Safety Administration reporting the largest increase in traffic deaths in 2015 since 1966.
Motor Vehicle Crashes: Overview
In California, the California Highway Patrol indicates that in 2013, (the most recent statistics available), one person was killed every two hours and 5 minutes as a result of a traffic collision. On average, one person was injured every two minutes and 21 seconds as a result of a traffic collision.In the aftermath of a car accident, what matters most is the impact on the victims and their family and the burdens they carry of escalating costs of care to themselves and loved ones. There’s also the expense of repairing or replacing their own vehicles and haggling with insurance companies concerned about their bottom line.
