Accidents & Injuries
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Automobile accident fatalities may be on the decline due to the rise in gas prices but statistics still indicate that on an average, more than six million motor vehicle accidents occur on U.S. roads each year. Three million people are injured yearly with more than 50% of the injuries having permanent repercussions. Insurance companies are aware of these trends, too. In order to reduce the amount of money paid out in claims each year, insurers employ their own experts in order to question the extent of a claimant’s injuries and the causes of an accident. That’s why establishing a balance of power in the courtroom is essential in auto accident cases.

- Talking or texting on cell phones
- Poor Roadway Maintenance

Automobile Accidents – A Leading Cause of Teen Deaths
Motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of death in teenagers. Contributing factors to teen driving deaths include lack of experience, distracted driving, excessive speed, aggressive driving, not using seat belts, driving while drowsy, drunk driving, drug use and “dare-devil” activities like racing and/or weaving in and out of traffic at high speeds. At The Nation Law Firm, we represent clients in wrongful death cases involving teen drivers. When alcohol or reckless endangerment is involved, we look at the terms of a teen driver’s policy, as well as the victim’s, in order to recover damages proportional to our client’s loss.
