Driving Your Car

The Most Common Unexpected Injury Accidents

The United States has some of the busiest and most crowded streets in the world. When compared to other similarly developed nations, the U.S. leads with the number of car accidents reported each year. In 2020 alone there were 276 million registered vehicles in the country. Every year there are more than 40,000 fatal crashes that happen that take the lives of more than 90 individuals. Also, as high as two million people will be permanently injured in the aftermath of a crash.

Workplace Injuries

Anyone can be injured on the job but certain industries report the highest rates of injuries each year. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, construction, transportation and warehousing, and agriculture are the top three when it comes to workplace injuries.

Defective Products

From toxic pharmaceuticals to malfunctioning products, there are thousands that are recalled each year because of the danger these items pose to the public. 

Medical Malpractice

Patients treated by medical professionals have some amount of trust that their best interests and health will be preserved. Unfortunately, medical mistakes happen, and research out of Johns Hopkins indicates that medical malpractice is responsible for 10% of deaths across the country.

Slip and Fall Incidents

Even though the elderly are the most vulnerable demographic for slip and fall incidents, everyone can slip, trip, and stumble causing great injury and even death.

Animal Attacks

Wild animal attacks can happen just as bites by domestic animals can. America’s favorite pet, the dog, is responsible for millions of biting incidents annually that cause serious harm. Each year as many as 800,000 people will need medical attention for a dog bite.
