Reckless Accident Statistics

Every year in the United States, careless drivers are responsible for hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries. “Willful disregard” for the safety of others, motorists or otherwise, is what the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration means when they talk about careless driving.

The annual toll in human suffering attributable to careless driving is challenging to predict. AAA found that between 2003 and 2007, careless driving was a factor in 56% of all accidents.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Fatal Accident Reporting System indicates that excessive speed is a factor in a significant number of different types of fatal car accidents that occur every year in the United States.

What to Do After a Car Accident

After a car crash, you must report it to the authorities right away. When communicating with authorities or an insurance company, it is important to stick to the facts and not make any assumptions. It’s unfortunate that many people who suffer as a result of accidents end up apologizing, even though they had nothing to do with the accident itself. If the policyholder acts in such a way, the insurer can deny the claim.

A copy of the report should be available from the relevant authorities upon request. You can also reach us via the online form found on this page. Once we have the report, we will begin looking into your case. Your insurance claim, no matter how big or small, will be reviewed by one of our expert attorneys at no extra cost to you.
