Millions of Car Accident Injuries
Auto accidents are the leading cause of death for teenagers in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As sobering as this statistic is, it simply reflects the reality of car accident injuries and fatalities in America: more than 2,500,000 people suffer car crash injuries in the U.S. each year.
All vehicle drivers and passengers – teenagers, children and adults – are vulnerable to car accident injuries. The U.S. population puts in hundreds of millions of miles on the road each year, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that about 5,973,000 car accidents occurred in 2006. The economic cost of vehicle crashes is upwards of $250 billion each year, for damages such as lost productivity, medical costs, and disability care.
