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.
