How Common Is Injury?

Accidents happen every day, many happen to people at no fault of their own. If this sounds all too familiar, you don’t have to be a victim. At the Massey Law Firm, we will review your case for free to see if we can seek compensation for injury. 

Here’s the latest data about accidents and injury in the United States from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

  • 72.6 million visits to physician offices for injuries
  • 37.9 million emergency department visits for injuries
  • 246,041 injury deaths
  • 75,797 poisoning deaths
  • 37,595 motor vehicle deaths  
  • 39,707 firearm deaths
  • 21.5 deaths per 100,000 population due to overdose

Most of this information comes from years 2019 and previous, and the numbers continue to rise each year.

According to the National Safety Council’s Injury Facts, there were 173,040 preventable injury-related deaths in 2019 — a number that increases 3.5 percent per year on average. This is only death. The number of accidents in which people sought medical attention, that didn’t result in death, was 48.3 million.

Why Sue After An Accident?

If you’re not sure about suing, there are some reasons why you may want to consider it. If you seek monetary compensation or protection, suing may be the right decision. 

Some accidents result in big losses such as pain, medical expenses, lost income, and more. If we can prove negligence or fault of the other party involved, you could likely receive compensation for associated damages, but we’ll help you identify if you have grounds for a lawsuit or claim.
