Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:
On the 4th of July holiday, Legal Reader has published an article I submitted to them pro bono on this subject.
Historically each and every holiday weekend, hundreds have died and thousands have suffered vehicle injuries. And all across the country emergency medical teams are activated to save people while often endangering themselves.
This article calls attention to GM OnStar’s latest ad campaign, NHTSA’s call for information to improve EMS, and possible upgraded national attention by DOD and HHS to improving trauma care in the U.S.A — which the American people have long needed.
It is that need which I, and many others, have worked on for decades and led to the creation of “Care for Crash Victims.”
On July 3rd, 2018, NHTSA published its annual report Traffic Safety Facts 2016 copy attached. The statistics on pp. 16 and 17 show that fatalities and fatality rates per 100,000 people have been rising the past decade.
Let’s hope that we are closer to making substantial advances because we can and we must do better and save more lives.
