Auto Accidents

Auto accidents are a leading cause of injury and death in the United States.  Millions of injuries and tens of thousands of fatalities occur each year from auto accidents.  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2013, there were 21,132 passenger vehicle occupants who lost their lives in traffic crashes and an estimated 2.05 million passenger vehicle occupants who were injured.  There were an estimated 9,892,000 vehicles involved in police-reported traffic crashes; 96 percent (9,538,000) were passenger vehicles.  There were also 44,811 vehicles involved in fatal crashes, of which 77 percent (34,691) were passenger vehicles.


Victims of auto accidents often suffer catastrophic injuries, traumatic brain injuries, burn injuries, other personal injuries, and sometimes death.  Auto accidents have the potential to negatively impact your health, your family,  your job, and your quality of life. Even an apparently minor traffic accident may result in serious injuries.


Victims of auto accidents can recover compensation for accidents caused by the negligence of drivers or other individuals, corporations, or businesses.  The following are some of the factors that may be considered negligence in an auto accident:


      •The Driving Speed: A person driving either too fast or too slow may cause an accident

      •Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs

      •Failure to observe traffic laws, such as stop signs, red traffic lights and other traffic signs

      •Reckless or careless driving

      •Failure to use headlights

      •Text messaging or talking on a cell phone.


If you have been hurt by the negligence of another driver, individual, corporation or business, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries, including pain and suffering, past and future medical bills, and lost income.  The attorneys at the Santana and Carlos Law Firm, P.C. represent individuals who have suffered catastrophic injuries, traumatic brain injuries, burn injuries, and other personal injuries, and family members of individuals who have been killed in auto accidents.
