Car Accident Statistics from the National Safety Council

Car involved in an accidentUsing some of the most recent crash statistics available, a National Safety Council (NSC) report has estimated that the total number of motor vehicle deaths in 2019 dropped 2% from 2018. While this is good news, it is important to understand the full picture, which is still harrowing. In 2019 alone, about 39,000 people died in car accidents, and nearly 4.5 million more were seriously injured. Until safe, responsible driving becomes the norm for all drivers, a steep decline in annual crashes cannot be expected.

While California has some of the best safety regulations in the country, there's still more room to improve. Despite it being illegal to drive while texting, surveys show that nearly 40% of drivers check their email or text messages while driving. Even hands-free conversations, which are currently legal, are shown to be dangerous—so there’s really no shortage of dangers out on the road.

Different Types of Car Accidents

Our law firm is capable of representing you after all sorts of car accidents, including:

  • Rear-end accidents: One of the most common types of car accidents is the rear-end accident, which can be deceptively dangerous. Rear-end collisions often seem relatively minor at first, but severe injuries can become noticeable later on like is common with whiplash.
  • T-bones: When a vehicle crashes into the side of another, it is called a T-bone collision because both cars form the shape of a T. People in the vehicle that was struck are at a high risk of severe injury because there is a much smaller crumple zone on the side of a vehicle than the front or back.
  • Head-on collisions: Many fatal car accidents are caused by head-on collisions. The forces of both vehicles are additive when they collide head-on. For example, two cars driving at 30 miles per hour will affect each driver as if they hit a solid wall at 60 miles per hour.
  • Multivehicle crashes: Determining liability in a multivehicle crash can be extremely frustrating, especially when you should be focusing on your health. Leave the details and the liability investigations up to our Roseville car accident attorney instead.

Common Car Accident Causes

Obtaining a fair and maximized compensation amount for you after a bad car accident depends on proving liability. To make this point with confidence, we need to know more about what caused your car accident. Using our extensive legal experience, investigative abilities, and connections with crash reconstruction and medical experts, we can often quickly and accurately find the exact cause of a client’s car accident, which is then used to argue liability.

A few of the more common causes of car accidents are:

  • Intoxication or impairment: Drunk drivers or those who are impaired by medications, narcotics, or other substances pose an extreme risk to other drivers on the road. Each day in America, dozens of people lose their lives in drunk driving accidents that could have been prevented with better driver responsibility.
  • Texting and driving: Distracted driving habits are also severely hazardous, especially with the popularity of the smartphone. By some estimates, at least 25% of all car accidents involve at least one driver who was distracted, usually by texting.
  • Speeding: When someone surpasses the posted speed limit, they put themselves and others in danger. Speed limits are carefully calculated by considering expected traffic, road, and weather conditions, so driving faster than them is not just illegal, it is also inherently dangerous.
  • Exhaustion: Fatigue can cause sleep deprivation symptoms in drivers that are strikingly similar to those caused by intoxication, such as worsened reaction times, poor motor control, and blurred vision.

Why You Should Hire a Car Accident Lawyer

Do you need to hire a car accident attorney to help with your claim? No, you have the right to handle your claim alone if you want. But this is akin to deciding to climb a mountain by yourself with no training and no mountaineer as a guide, which is obviously a bad idea.

The truth in most cases is that liability laws are tricky and insurance companies are bullies. If you don’t know the law inside-and-out, and you aren’t prepared for what an insurer will say in defense of its policyholder, then you could easily be at a disadvantage as your claim progresses. On the other hand, the simple act of hiring a car accident attorney will make you immediately ready for the worst your case can encounter because your attorney’s experiences and insights effectively become your own when they act on your behalf.

Why should you hire a car accident attorney? Because it makes everything far less stressful for you.
