Prince George’s County, Maryland Car Accidents Can Mean Hefty Costs

By Alpert Schreyer on August 14, 2012

About 122 motorists are killed each year in Prince George’s County car accidents, according to the state Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA). On average, Prince George’s County has the highest auto accident death rate in Maryland.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that the costs of motor vehicle accident deaths statewide in Maryland are about $576 million each year. This means that Prince George’s County families must absorb millions in car accident costs every year. These expenses consist of medical bills, lost wages, and other job benefits.

Although a car accident can claim a life at any age, the largest age group killed in car accidents each year is young adults, ages 20-34, according to the CDC. These young workers have often begun a career, but their highest years of productivity are ahead of them. When a car crash claims a young adult’s life, the opportunity to establish themselves and to earn raises and promotions – sometimes, for several more decades – disappears in an instant. These losses contribute to the high costs of lost wages and benefits due to car accidents.

The highest cost in a fatal car accident is always the loss of a human life. But the financial costs, too, are substantial, and far too often they must be borne by a family already struggling to move forward in the face of its grief. At Alpert Schreyer, our experienced and compassionate Prince George’s County wrongful death car accident attorneys can help you get the compensation you need to make ends meet after a crash.
