Atlanta Car Accident Lawyer, Montlick & Associates, Discusses Impact of Auto Accidents on US Economy
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the financial toll of auto accidents in the US is now close to 100 billion dollars each year. This is a staggering amount considering that most auto accidents involve some form of unsafe driving practice by one or more of the drivers involved.
According to the NHTSA, the top causes of auto accidents are distracted driving; driver fatigue; drunk driving; speeding and aggressive driving. "The reason we are so committed to our driver safety programs is because we know from experience, that with proper education and a little extra care, many accidents could be prevented", says David Montlick, CEO of Atlanta Car Accident Law Firm, Montlick & Associates. "Of course, the heavy financial burden that car accidents place on our economy, that is a big concern too." In the video above, Montlick & Associates Family Safety Advocate, Jacquie Palisi, shares important tips for preventing auto accidents. "In light of the CDC's report, it is worth reminding ourselves: to slow down, pay attention, show common courtesy to other drivers, and to always wear a seat belt. These are simple steps we all can take every day," says Palisi.
