Car Accidents caused by distracted or intoxicated drivers are all too commonplace on our roadways. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there are over 10 million car crashes in the United States each year resulting in nearly 36 thousand deaths. In addition, there are on average 3 million people injured annually, with 2 million permanent injuries. This means that every 12 minutes a person dies in a car crash and every 14 seconds a person is injured. These injuries are of epidemic proportion in this country and state.
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration there are over 5,000 deaths and 78,000 injuries related to trucking accidents each year in the U.S. The problem with a crash involving a large truck is that more often the individuals in the car sustained serious injuries or worse, death. Bob and his staff know how to go right to work digging through the pile of evidence that is needed to hold the truck drivers liable for the injuries they cause and get the most amount of money the law allows.
All too often motorcycle accidents produce serious injuries. Motorcyclists are 35 times more likely to be involved in a deadly accident on the road than car passengers. In most cases, the motorcyclist is not at fault. Almost 90,000 motorcyclists are injured annually and over 5,000 result in death with head injury being the leading cause of death. The National Highway Traffic Safety Institute reported that 42% of fatal motorcycle crashes involved a car turning left while the motorcycle was going straight, passing, or overtaking the vehicle.
