An estimated 40,000 people died on U.S. roadways in 2016, which is a 6% increase over 2015 and 14% increase over 2014. This rise of fatalities in 2014–2016 is the most dramatic two-year increase in 53 years.
For car accident cases we conduct a thorough investigation of the circumstances leading to the accident, often relying upon accident re-constructionists and experts who help us prove the facts.
YINGLING V. GENERAL MOTORS CASE SUMMARY
CONCLUSIONS: In April 2016, General Motors reached a confidential settlement with the Pittsburgh-based law firm Pribanic & Pribanic in a wrongful death lawsuit: filed on behalf of the family of James E. Yingling III – a Pennsylvania man killed in a November 2013 one-vehicle crash. The case was selected as the third in a series of bellwether trials related to the company’s extensive recall of defective ignition switches. General Motors won the first two bellwether cases, but days before the Yingling case was expected to go to trial, General Motors offered a settlement that both Mr. Yingling’s widow, Nadia, and lead attorney Victor Pribanic found acceptable.

What to Do After a Car Accident?
The most important thing to do is seek medical treatment if you have been injured in an accident. And there are other steps you can take to improve your chances of securing compensation, like preserving evidence. Taking photographs of the vehicles involved as well as the accident scene can be helpful, while getting the vehicle repaired can compromise important evidence.
It is also important to be careful about what you say to the insurance companies. They are trying to limit their liability and may try to get you to make statements that hurt your case. To ensure your rights are protected, consult with an experienced car accident attorney before saying anything to an insurance company.
