Motor vehicle accidents are a widespread issue, resulting in a substantial amount of injuries and deaths annually. As a personal injury litigation office committed to meeting our clients' requirements, The Licatesi Law Group is aware of the significant effects these incidents may have on people and their families.
Car accidents involve a range of injuries, which can be either mild or serious. It is important for victims and their legal representatives to have a thorough awareness of these injuries. Common injuries resulting from sudden halts or crashes include whiplash and soft tissue injuries. These injuries can include neck strain, soreness, and damage to muscles and ligaments. Car accidents can generate a significant amount of force, which can lead to fractures and the breakage of bones in various areas of the body. Incidents often involve head injuries, which can range from mild concussions to traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) with significant cognitive repercussions. Collisions can result in spinal cord injuries, which can lead to permanent effects such as paralysis or decreased mobility. There is also a significant and maybe fatal chance that internal organ damage from an accident's force could occur. In addition, motor vehicle accidents can lead to emotional discomfort, characterized by symptoms such as anxiety, sadness, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in the aftermath.
Forbes magazine reports that approximately 38% of all accidents in New York lead to fatalities or injuries, highlighting the widespread consequences of these events. According to data from the New York Department of Health, there was an average of 1,098 deaths per year caused by unintentional injuries related to motor vehicle traffic. This corresponds to a rate of 5.6 deaths per 100,000 residents of New York. Males and individuals aged 65 and older had significantly higher rates, with the 20-24 age group following closely behind.
