Every year, approximately 2.5 million people are injured in motor vehicle accidents. Every 12 to 15 minutes, someone is killed. Drunk drivers, speeding, driving distractions and faulty motor vehicle equipment are just a few of the reasons that millions of motorists, passengers, bicyclists and pedestrians become victims of car accidents. The motor vehicle accident lawyers at DePaolo & Zadeikis believe that even one severe injury, or one death, is one too many.
When at-fault drivers are not forced to pay the price for their negligence, recklessness or intentional behaviors, they continue to speed, text while driving, and disobey traffic laws, jeopardizing the safety of others on the road. And sadly, it is victims like you who are left to shoulder the costs. It’s time to put the brakes on misconduct behind the wheel.

Car accidents are caused by a wide variety of behaviors, road conditions and equipment failures. According to the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration, the most common causes of car accidents include:
When people are involved in serious car crashes, the injuries that result are frequently life-changing. While some car accident injuries are temporary and many go unnoticed, even minor fender benders can cause permanent disability, suffering, and emotional distress, which result in substantial costs for medical treatment. Brain damage, amputations, permanent disfigurement, paralysis and PTSD are common injuries sustained by victims of serious motor vehicle crashes.
When you’re involved in a serious car accident, the initial shock from the crash may have a significant impact on your judgement, your ability to make decisions, your sense of pain and loss, and more. The way you handle the minutes, days and weeks after a crash, however, can substantially affect your ability to recover full and fair compensation.
Our auto accident attorneys provide guidance and legal representation from the moments right after a crash until your case is settled to ensure that your rights are always protected.
