Fatal Automobile Accidents

Fatal Automobile Accidents: The CDC states that auto accidents are the leading cause of death for Americans ages 5 to 34. This situation is so serious that the UN General Assembly has proclaimed 2011 to 2020 to be the “Decade of Action for Road Safety.” Annual NJ costs from fatal accidents are estimated to be roughly $650 million. The bulk of those numbers involve wages lost as a result of an accident. If you have lost a loved one in an auto accident, the NJ Auto Accident Legal Team at Gill & Chamas can help.

At the Law Offices of Gill and Chamas we provide dedicated and aggressive legal representation. There are few legal cases so emotionally charged as a fatal auto accident, and you need to be able to rely on your legal team for clear-eyed insight. Our personal injury lawyers have been successful in arguing for damages in fatal auto accident cases for nearly 30 years, and we are here and ready to assist – from seeking recovery for lost wages to covering other costs associated with the accident.

The firm has recovered many settlements and verdicts for fatally injured victims involved in automobile accidents. In one case a Middlesex County jury awarded $3.375 million to the family of a man killed after his SUV was hit by a drunk driver. The plaintiff was driving on Route 35 in Middletown when he was hit from the back by a car driven by the defendant. The plaintiff was ejected from his SUV and passed away three hours after the accident. The defendant had a BAC of .189 percent an hour and 45 minutes afterwards. The plaintiff’s NJ auto accident attorney was Peter Chamas who has been representing fatally injured clients for almost 20 years.
