Decline in car accident deaths

According to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Nebraska residents have a much greater chance of dying from heart disease than from car accidents. Data that was gathered about the 2.6 million U.S. deaths that occurred in 2013 showed that about one in every 77 people died in a car accident while one in every four people died from heart disease.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has reported that car-related fatalities in the U.S. have gone down by over one-third over the last three years. The numbers of car accident fatalities have also gone down steadily since 1985. Over the past few decades, advances in safety technology and improvements in vehicle designs have contributed greatly to this decline.

The CDC data showed that the chances of dying in a car accident are the same as the chances of dying from a firearm. Suicide kills one in every 63 people, general accidents kill one in every 20 people, and alcohol and drugs kill one in every 34 people. Some of the least common causes of death are skin cancer, which kills one in every 276 people, drowning, which kills one in every 640 people, and fire, which kills one in every 821 people.

A person who has been injured in a motor vehicle accident that may have been caused by the negligence of another driver may want to meet with a personal injury attorney to discuss how to move forward. Based upon a review of the accident investigation report and other evidence such as eyewitness testimony, the attorney may be able to demonstrate that the at-fault party should be held financially responsible for the victim's losses.
