Car Accidents

 

Since 2012, car crashes have caused more than 1.5 million injuries and 30,000 deaths each year in the United States.

 

Car accidents are too often catastrophic

 

  • Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among teens.

  • Per miles driven, teen drivers aged 16-19 are nearly three times more likely than drivers aged 20 and older to be in a fatal crash.

  • In 2018, there was an alcohol-impaired traffic fatality every 50 minutes in the United States.

  • Around 2 million drivers in car accidents experience permanent injuries every year.

Car accidents can be overwhelming

 

Auto accidents can change the life of an individual or family overnight. In addition to the damaged vehicle, insurance questions, and paperwork, many people have serious injuries that require medical treatment and time to heal.

​Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo will hold accountable any potentially liable parties including:

  • A driver who failed to follow the traffic rules

  • An inattentive driver, including someone texting or talking on the phone while driving

  • A drunk driver

  • Commercial truck drivers and their employers

  • Car and car parts manufacturers

  • Bars, social hosts, clubs and restaurants that serve intoxicated drivers

  • Local governments who fail to provide safe intersections and streets
