 Car Auto Accident Lawsuit 

On June 22, 2013, the family of a 22-year-old Chicago man killed in a road accident won compensation worth $3.75 million following the settlement of a car accident injury lawsuit filed against ATS Specialized Inc. A vehicle of the trucking company hit the victim’s car on Interstate 57 near Ludlow from behind in November 2012, leading to his death. The police found that driver was driving at a dangerous speed at the time of accident and failed to slow down despite hitting the victim’s car. Two days prior to this accident, another car accident injury lawsuit resulted in $1.29 million compensation to a Hollywood woman. In May 2013, a Philadelphia jury awarded $19.1 million to a Bensalem man, who lost his leg in a two-car collision in 2009.

Over a million car accident injury lawsuits are filed in the United States each year. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, car accidents in the United States lead to at least 30,000 deaths and 3 million injuries, ranging from minor to serious ones, causing permanent disability every year. The national economy loses more than $230 billion annually following damages caused by car accidents.
