The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that nearly 30,000 fatal car accidents occurred in the United States in the year 2011, resulting in more than 32,000 deaths. These fatalities included:

  • Drivers
  • Passengers
  • Motorcyclists
  • Pedestrians
  • Bicyclists

Like most car wrecks, fatal car accidents are usually caused by human error. Common reasons for fatal traffic collisions include:

  • Distracted driving (texting, etc.)
  • Driving under the influence
  • Fatigued driving
  • Defective auto parts
  • Poorly constructed / maintained roads

While some crashes may be the result of unavoidable weather conditions, many are caused by carelessness and negligence. If your loved one’s death was caused by another’s irresponsible actions, you may be able to sue the responsible party for your loved one’s suffering, along with the following damages:

  • Loss of care, if he / she provided your income
  • Loss of future income
  • Sorrow and lost companionship
  • Burial and funeral expenses

At Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata, & Siegel, P.C., we believe that accident victims and their families should be compensated for their losses if their loved one was taken from them as a result of the negligence of another. To learn more about your legal options available in these situations, including wrongful death claims and survival actions, contact us today.
