Car Accidents: A Serious Problem
Every year, according to the Association for Safe International Road Travel (ASIRT), car accidents claim the lives of more than 37,000 people in the United States, alone. Additionally, 2.35 million others are hurt in car crashes in the States, with many of those injuries being serious and life-changing. All told, car accidents in the United States cost an estimated $230.6 billion every year, or an average of $820 per person.
Almost half of passenger vehicle occupants killed were not wearing seat belts according to the NHTSA. Research shows almost one in three fatalities involved drunk drivers or speeding. One in 10 fatalities involved distraction. Click here for a 2015 Lives Saved Research Note. Click here for a 2015 Overview.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that, on average, each emergency room visit that comes from a car accident – the CDC says there are approximately 2.5 million of them – costs $3,300. If these visits turn into a hospital stay, it can cost more in the range of $57,000.
And these are just the costs faced by those who survive. ASIRT says that, across the globe, car accidents have become the leading cause of death among people between the ages of 15 and 29, and the second leading cause of death worldwide among people between the ages of 5 and 14.

What to Do if You Have Been Injured in an Accident
Our Berks County car accident attorneys recommend that you take several important steps after an automobile accident. First, insist upon receiving immediate medical attention. Even if you do not feel injured at the moment, it is possible that you will develop injuries later. If you feel any pain at all, no matter how insignificant it seems at the time, insist that the medical provider include that in his or her report. Also, request that the driver of the other vehicle receive a medical exam, as well. Under no circumstances should you sign any documents that say you are not injured. Do not give interviews that could potentially be used against you in the future.
If possible, you will also need to contact the appropriate authorities so that you can give your account of the accident. You will want as much documentation as possible in the event that you find yourself in litigation.
Finally, contact The Brod Law Firm to consult with an expert Pennsylvania car accident injury lawyer regarding the collision. Remember, time is of the essence and it is possible that your attorney can gain valuable information soon after the collision that he or she might not be able to gather later.
