There are More Than 6,000,000 Motor Vehicle Accidents on US Roads Every Year

With dozens of motor vehicle styles and types on the roads today, and with more and more drivers distracted by modern-day conveniences like cellular phones, iPads, Nooks, and Kindles, the National Highway Traffic Association (NHTA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) estimates that a motor vehicle accidents occur in the United States roughly once every five (5) seconds. This is an absolutely staggering statistic as it effectively estimates the following:

  • 12 motor vehicle accidents per minute
  • 720 motor vehicle accidents per hour
  • 17,280 motor vehicle accidents per day
  • 120,960 motor vehicle accidents per week
  • 520,129 motor vehicle accidents per month
  • More than 6,000,000 motor vehicle accidents per year

And of the 6,000,000 motor vehicle accidents each year, it is estimated that more than 2,000,000 people suffer permanent injuries. That’s right, one third of all people involved in a motor vehicle accident will suffer some sort of permanent injury that will affect them for the rest of their life.

Insurance Industry Standard – DELAY, DENY, DEFEND

In 2007, CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Kathleen Johnston produced an exposé detailing a common scheme employed by ten (10) of the top twelve (12) insurance companies – delay handling your claim, deny you were hurt in the accident, and defend against your claim in long, drawn-out court battles. The purpose of this tactic, as one insurance company brazenly wrote in their training manual, is to “force smaller, walk-away settlements.” It’s a despicable practice, and it’s rampant in the insurance industry.

How do you combat this practice? With a skilled, experienced car accident attorney. Just look at our Notable Victories page for a series of cases in which the insurance companies delayed, denied, defended, and ultimately paid our Bucks County clients millions of dollars because we had the law on our side.

Auto Accident Case Win:

$235,000.00 Settlement in Montgomery County, PA: $235,000.00 settlement for two motorists who suffered numerous broken bones when another car forced their car off the road and directly into a 100-year-old tree. The defense initially argued that one of our clients caused the accident by speeding and illegally passing the defendant driver on the right, but we were able to disprove this argument with the defendant driver’s own testimony and the help of an accident reconstructionist.
