At some point in their lives, most people experience a car or motor vehicle accident. The number of car accidents increases every year involving millions of Americans. Even though a common event, an accident is unanticipated, and the impact and resulting injury are, to some degree, life changing, even if only for a short time. However, for many, injuries are disastrous, last a lifetime or result in death.

Saggese & Associates has experience in every kind of motor vehicle accident injury lawsuit. We have successfully prosecuted cases against careless drivers of cars, trucks and motorcycles, corporations employing these drivers, and automobile and truck manufacturers whose vehicles fail to meet "crashworthiness" standards.
