There is one unfortunate yet inevitable truth: accidents happen – and many of those result in serious injuries. According to the most recent data available from the National Safety Council, approximately 46.5 million nonfatal injuries occurred in the United States in 2018, totaling upward of $1,059 billion in costs (including damages recovered from the responsible party by a California personal injury lawyer like Maryam Parman, Super Woman Super Lawyer). To put the numbers in perspective, that’s roughly one injured individual for every seven citizens. The statistics for fatal injuries in the United States tell a grim tale as well, with preventable injury-related deaths rising 93% to 167,127 over the past 26 years, from 86,777 in 1992.
In California in 2018, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported a staggering toll of workplace injuries alone, revealing a figure of roughly 466,500 reported injuries among all industries including private, state, and local government – many of which required the service of a California personal injury attorney. Laborers held the most frequently injured occupation at 7.6%, while truck drivers came closely behind at 5.5%. In addition to workplace related traffic collisions and injuries, car accidents continue to be a leading cause of both nonfatal and fatal injuries, with the California Office of Traffic Safety citing 3,563 traffic fatalities in the state in 2018. Nationally, the U.S. Department of Transportation and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimated a total of 6,734,000 motor vehicle crashes in the United States in 2018, resulting in approximately 1,894,000 injuries.
