In 2014 over 2.3 million Americans were injured
in vehicle collisions
The Department of Transportation estimated that in 2014 over 2.3 million Americans were injured in a motor vehicle collision and another 32,675 were killed.
While it is encouraging to see such statistical improvement over prior years, this study looks only at police reported collisions and does not define “injured”. Given the known numbers from the NHTSA we have estimated that the odds of any individual being involved in a motor vehicle collision in any given year is about 1 in 25.
As for the DOT determination of “injured”, we know that what may start out as “a little stiffness” or anxiety about getting back behind the wheel may seem relatively minor, but if left untreated these can become more complicated over time.
Our mission is to provide doctors and lawyers with the tools to properly diagnose, document and manage personal injury cases to insure that those who suffer motor vehicle injuries get the best care possible and are fairly compensated for their injuries.
AAMVI Vision Statement
We believe that those injured in a motor vehicle collision should be helped toward a full recovery and justly compensated for their injuries and losses. Given the support of properly trained professionals, we aim to insure that those so injured do not suffer again at the hands of insurance companies.
The need to train doctors and lawyers on how to diagnose, treat, and manage these cases is why the American Academy of Motor Vehicles Injuries was founded.
We offer two levels of training:
Each of these have distinct requirements in terms of hours of instruction, time in practice, and testing.
