Motor Vehicle Accidents

In the year 2013, 2,200,000 people were injured in motor vehicle accidents, making auto accidents the leading cause of injury and death in the United States. The NHTSA (National Highway Transportation Safety Administration) reported other very alarming statistics on automobile accidents:

  • 2,200,000 injuries, of which 32,200 were fatal
  • More than one quarter of those fatalities were people under the age of 20
  • in 40% of those traffic accident fatalities, alcohol was a contributing factor
  • 63% were caused from improper use of seat belt

If you have been involved in an automobile accident or traffic collision, you may be entitled to compensation from the negligent party's insurance company and/or your own if the negligent driver was uninsured or underinsured. Never proceed with a negligence claim without first obtaining legal advice. At the Law Offices of Kevin T. Grennan, PLLC, we will promptly investigate a crash and seek to recover all legal damages.

Things you should do after an accident:

  • Insist that a report be filed with the police or highway patrol.
  • Obtain the name, address, insurance information, vehicle license number and driver's license number of any and all other persons involved in the accident.
  • Also obtain the names, addresses and telephone numbers of all witnesses to the accident.
  • Photograph the accident scene, including all vehicles involved (before repairing) and any visible injuries (cuts, bruises). Use your cell phone camera at the scene!
  • Sign nothing without consulting a lawyer. Truthful statements made in an attempt to be helpful can sometimes be misinterpreted and used against you.
