Fatal Car Crash Lawyer
The loss of a loved one is painful. No matter the circumstances, the death of a loved one contributes to serious grief, years of painful remembrance, and physical and mental suffering. When the accident was preventable, the suffering only grows.
Car accidents are a main cause of fatalities:
- 80 people are killed on United States roads every day
- In 2015, there were 32,166 fatal car accidents
- In Florida, 2,699 people died in traffic accidents in 2015
To make matters worse, many of these accidents were likely preventable. A driver can easily make the decision to hail a cab if they have been drinking, or can resist the urge to check a text. However, not everyone makes these responsible choices, and other drivers suffer because of it.
- 32% of fatal accidents involve drunk driving
- 31% of accidents involve a speeding driver
- 16% of accident involve speeding
Only 11% of fatal accidents happen because of non-human reasons, like inclement weather. This truly shows that, if everyone made good decisions on the roads, the number of fatalities would greatly decrease.
In 9% of fatal accidents nationwide, the victims are between the ages of 16 and 20. The loss of a young person is especially tragic. They have their whole lives ahead of them, but everything is cut short by one reckless decision.
