Jacksonville car accident statistics for 2016
Due in large part to the military presence, Jacksonville is one of the youngest cities in America, with an average age of 22.8 years. This youthful population enjoys a wide range of cultural and recreational amenities consisting of military memorials and museums, parks, trails, greenways, and the Riverwalk Marina. Jacksonville is a perfect community for active young adults who enjoy running a 5K or 10K, cycling, and team sports. Unfortunately, all it takes is one tragic car crash to rob a young person of a promising future.
Jacksonville, like any small city, has high-speed traffic lanes, such as those on U.S. 17 and Rte. 24, as well as dangerous intersections on surface streets, such as U.S. 17 and Western Blvd., Western Blvd. and Liberty, and U.S. 17 and Georgetown. In 2016, there were 2,537 serious car wrecks in the city, causing 593 injuries and two fatalities. Of these crashes, 47 were alcohol-related and produced 14 injuries; 19 crashes injured a total of 18 pedestrians, one fatally; and five involved bicycles, causing four injuries. Any auto accident has the potential to upend your life. As you try to recover your health, you need a determined legal team to protect your rights.
Pursuing full compensation for Jacksonville car accidents
If a driver is at fault for an accident that injured you, you have a right to recover damages, such as medical expenses, lost income, and compensation for pain and suffering. But you must be able to prove the other driver was negligent, and proof is not always easy to obtain. At Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban, our attorneys have vast experience determining fault in auto accidents. By working with accident reconstruction experts, examining police reports, and interviewing witnesses, we are often able to establish the cause of an auto accident, which could be:
- Distracted driving, such as cellphone use
- Aggressive driving, speeding or exceeding a safe speed for road conditions
- Failing to yield right of way
- Improper lane change
- Wrong way driving
- Alcohol or drug use
- Improper turning
Our North Carolina car accident lawyers have handled injury cases involving single cars, multiple cars, motorcycles, tractor-trailers, commercial vehicles, bicycles, and pedestrians. We capably manage cases arising from all types of accident scenarios, such as:
- Head-on collisions
- Rear-end collisions
- Side-swipe accidents
- T-bone accidents
We also take on difficult cases where certain complications make a financial recovery difficult, such as crashes caused by underinsured motorists, unlicensed drivers or drivers with suspended licenses .
But most importantly, we have a strong track record of success when it comes to maximizing the amount of compensation our clients receive. Our highest duty is to deliver the greatest recovery possible for our clients, as we have done consistently, especially in tragic cases of catastrophic injury and wrongful death.
