Motor Vehicle Crashes

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2013 the U.S. crash death rate was more than twice the average of other high-income countries. For the most part, these are preventable occurrences. There are laws in place to help keep us safe: wear seatbelts, follow speed limits, keep a safe distance behind other vehicles, place infants and young children in car seats, bikers and motorcyclists wear helmets, and so on.

Despite this, some people choose to violate the rules. They betray the trust of other travelers, causing great pain and harm. If you’ve been wronged by someone whose actions have caused a motor vehicle crash, Advocates United can help.
