Although all vehicles must obey traffic safety laws, they are not treated the same under law. Some vehicles are not considered as motor vehicles, and are subject to different laws than those that are. This could affect your rights as an injured person. For example, if you are injured in an accident involving a bus, trolley or train, your rights as an injured person are affected because busses and trolleys are governed by different laws in your state, and trains are regulated by federal law.

Car accidents are the leading cause of injury and death for drivers under the age of 34 years, and the number of people over the age of 34 years injured and killed in car accidents is also alarmingly high. Over 40,000 people are killed in approximately five million motor vehicle collisions and other car accidents annually, many involving teen car accidents. In 2002 alone, nearly 43,000 people died in highway accidents nationwide. That equates to over 115 fatalities per day.

In almost all auto accidents, at least one injury is involved, which is why car accidents are one of the top personal injury claims filed in civil courts these days. The economic costs of personal injuries and property damage sustained in car accidents is staggering over $150 billion per year. What does all this mean to you? It means that all drivers, including you, are likely to get in at least one car accident in their lifetime. They also indicate that you probably will sustain an injury, and if you are injured our attorneys will give you the most professional, effective and aggressive legal representation.

Client Reviews
I have known Ira for several decades and without a doubt he represents the best of the profession- a never ending commitment to his clients and a perpetual desire for learning and sharing his expertise with his colleagues. Richard
I found, and still find, that Ira’s firm will evaluate the case fairly and provide the client with a reasonably expectation of the process involved and will avoid giving false hope where there is none. Also Ira’s firm consistently keeps in constant touch with the client as well as referring attorneys so each knows the progress of a case. Finally I can tell you that if I personally were injured, Ira Leesfield is the first person I would call. Michael Browning
