Here are some sad facts regarding car accidents in the US:

On the average, 6 million vehicular accidents affect millions of people with serious injury and worse, fatality.

  • 25% of all car drivers were involved in vehicular accidents in five-year period.
  • 40% of these are caused by drunk drivers.
  • 60% of the car accident fatalities are caused by reckless driving and over speeding.
  • In every 12 minutes, one person dies in car accident.
  • Injury caused by a car accident happens in every 14 minutes.
While some accidents can’t be avoided, many of these resulted from reckless driving. It is unfortunate that victims suffer from head trauma, brain injuries, spinal damage, bone fracture, neck injuries and even death.
