Motor Vehicle Accidents

It is no secret that motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of death in the United States, with over 30,000 people killed annually. Often overlooked is the economic impact from these auto accident related deaths. A large study conducted by the Center for Disease Control in 2005 showed that the lifetime costs (both medical and loss of work) of crash-related deaths were $41 billion per year. Of that $41 billion, Delaware residents accounted for $107 million, and Pennsylvania residents accounted for a staggering $1.52 billion.

If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident and suffered a personal injury, you may be able to obtain compensation for your lifetime costs, including: medical costs, on-going care, damaged property, and loss of income. Sometimes you may even be able to receive compensation for damages that are more difficult to assign a monetary value, such as pain and suffering, loss of experiences, and emotional distress.

At the Law Office of Michael J. Hood, we bring more than 31 years of experience to accident victims in Delaware and Pennsylvania. Our clients appreciate our straightforward approach to personal injury claims.
