This web site named “Care for Crash Victims” is a project of a small business public benefit enterprise, Louis V. Lombardo, LLC. The mission is to improve care for crash victims before, during, and after a crash. We are all crash victims — past, present, and future — as individuals, families, friends and society. All of us are impacted by crashes as consumers, insurance premium payers, and tax payers.
The vision is to advance the prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of serious crash injuries. Currently in the U.S. each day nearly 100 people die of crash injuries — more than half die without transport to a medical treatment facility — and another estimated 400 people suffer serious injuries. U.S. DOT dollar values for preventing such losses currently amount to about $2 Billion each day.
Since 1978 in the U.S., more people have died and suffered serious crash injuries than died or were wounded in all wars since 1776.
This work continues 45 years of research, writing, and public interest advocacy described and documented to some extent on this web site — along with some key historic publications.
This project offers a monthly report “Care for Crash Victims” to subscribers, and consulting services to organizations working to advance auto safety. Subscribers receive data, information, analysis, and insights to help them in their efforts to save lives, livelihoods, and losses from crash injuries.
