In 2007, 301,290 people traveled 3,030 billion miles on the nation’s roads. There were 1.36 fatalities from accidents per 100 million miles traveled.
Given those statistics, there is a small but real chance you or a loved one will be involved in a fatality car accident. If you caused an accident and there was a fatality involved, contact a car accident attorney as soon as possible. The deceased’s family (the plaintiff) will most likely contact an attorney so that they may be compensated for their loss. Often, the plaintiff will try to prove negligence in an accident.
When you are involved in a legal action for fatalities in car accidents, the insurance companies are involved. While your insurance company may appoint someone to represent you, you should have your own attorney, as the insurance company’s attorneys will look out for the best interest of the insurance company first.
Our car accident lawyers represent you so that you get the best possible outcome in the legal matter. We have access to the best expert witnesses—medical professionals and accident scene professionals.
