WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 3, 2017) – Every year the National Safety Council shares its predictions about traffic safety, but this year the news is alarming as they expect a 6 percent increase in the number of deaths last year in 2016.

“It’s disheartening to see the number of fatal crashes increasing last year,” said Attorney James Johnson. “We can’t change the past, but moving forward it’s important that we as drivers all do our part to ensure the safety of others.”

Despite efforts to educate the public about traffic safety, human choices account for roughly 94 percent of all traffic accidents, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The three main factors that contribute to roadway deaths remain booze, seat belts and speed, but distracted driving and the public’s inability to refrain from using electronics devices behind the wheel are also big factors contributing to fatal collisions.

Police do everything they can to help prevent fatal collisions by providing high visibility enforcement of traffic laws, encouraging and educating the public to be aware of how to make the roads safer and just doing their jobs. If drivers don’t do their part, however, there will continue to be increases in traffic fatalities. Hopefully statistics will show a decrease in 2017.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.

You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case.
