Auto accidents cause millions of injuries and tens of thousands of deaths each year in the United States. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the CDC) reported that in 2006, over 45,000 people in the U.S. died in traffic accidents and nearly five million more people were hurt badly enough in an auto accident that an emergency room visit was necessary.
Gacovino, Lake Auto Accident Attorneys
In fact, the CDC notes that auto accidents are the leading cause of death for people from age 1 to 34. At Gacovino, Lake & Associates, our personal injury attorneys are acutely aware of the upheaval that even a relatively minor auto accident causes in the lives of all involved, and we strive to do all that is possible to bring about a fair and satisfactory legal resolution to auto accident cases.
Whether or not an individual injured or killed in an auto accident was partly responsible, he or she has a right to legal representation. Many vehicle accidents are complex events that require the attention of experts in the field, whereas other accidents have very clear causation. In far too many scenarios, a driver who has had too much alcohol, mind-altering drugs, or both is responsible for other persons' injuries or death.
As a personal injury law firm, Gacovino, Lake & Associates has a great deal of experience with auto accident cases. We have represented hundreds of auto accident victims, each with a unique set of circumstances. Our attorneys are highly skilled and knowledgeable about what it takes to obtain the best possible settlement or court award in such cases.
Oftentimes, an auto accident needs extensive investigation— of, for example:
- the surrounding environment
- weather conditions
- traffic patterns
- persons involved— including factors such as alcohol, drugs, fatigue, cell phone/texting use
- vehicles involved (some may not be traceable)— including vehicle defects
- law enforcement oversight (highway patrol, sheriff, local police)
