Automobile Accidents

While the number of fatal motor vehicle accidents has fallen nationwide over the past 12 years, it ticked up 7 percent in 2015. Overall, more than 35,000 died in motor vehicle accidents in the United States in 2015, costing the economy more than $242 billion.

According to research from the International Institute for Highway Safety, factors that contribute to the state’s deadly roads include:

High interstate speed limit.

Low seatbelt usage

A disproportionate amount of traffic deaths occur on rural roads.

Mitigating Factors in Auto Accidents






Getting into a motor vehicle accident does not necessarily mean that you will lose your license, but certain circumstances can actually make that happen. For example, you can lose your license if your accident included:

  • DUI. Driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol can cost your driving privileges for 90 days for a first offense.

  • Leaving the scene.

  • Reckless driving.

  • Vehicular homicide.

  • Operating a vehicle during the commission of a felony.


Finally, suspension may fall into one of two categories:

  • Mandatory: This is a suspension for a set time frame.

  • Indefinite: This is obviously an open-ended suspension.


You can also have your driver’s license revoked, which is essentially an outright cancellation that can only be reversed following an investigation. If you have been in a car accident and you are facing the loss of your driver’s license, do not take any chances. Get the legal help you need immediately from a Burg Simpson criminal defense lawyer.
