If you or a loved one sustains injuries in a car accident caused by the negligence of other parties, an experienced automobile accident attorney at Fallgatter & Catlin, P.A. in Jacksonville can help you pursue the compensation you need to meet medical and other expenses related to your injuries.

More than 6,000,000 auto accidents take place in the United States every year. An estimated 3,000,000  injuries occur as a result of these accidents — and 2,000,000 of those injuries are permanent. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration predicts that by 2020, highway crashes will result in more than 50,000 fatalities every year.

Underlying causes of auto accidents

Numerous auto accidents are caused by either negligence or intentional, reckless conduct by drivers.  Other accidents result from factors such as unsafe roads, hazardous weather conditions or defective vehicle parts. Improperly functioning safety equipment, such as faulty seat belts or airbags, can also result in needless injury. When a party involved in a car accident — whether another driver, a commercial transportation company, a manufacturer or the local government that bears the responsibility for maintaining safe roads — fails to exercise reasonable care, grounds may exist for a personal injury claim.
