Atlanta Auto Accident Attorneys
Car accidents are one of the leading causes of catastrophic personal injuries in the U.S. They are the leading cause of death of people of every age from 3 to 33 years old, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
According to the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT), more than 6 million people were involved in motor vehicle crashes as a driver, passenger or pedestrian from 2000 to 2006. Injuries resulting from these crashes in Georgia included:
- Almost 1 million injured men, women and children
- An average of more than 2,500 injuries each week
- 11,435 fatalities (An average of 31 each week)
At Mitchell & Shapiro LLP, we take these statistics to heart. GDOT and the NHTSA make great strides each year to increase road and traffic safety, but the numbers remain high. Attorneys Richard Mitchell and Ken Shapiro lead our Atlanta law firm in pursuit of maximum compensation for those clients who have suffered serious injury in auto accidents due to the negligence or wrongful acts of others.
