A Rundown on Eye-Opening Wrongful Death Statistics

Accident statistics often yield counter-intuitive findings. Most people, for instance, might think that motor vehicle accidents lead to more accident-related deaths than any other single cause. However, numbers provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) suggest otherwise.

Per the CDC, in 2013, there were 33,804 traffic-related deaths, equivalent to 10.7 deaths per 100,000 members of the United States population. While this is certainly a high figure, an astonishing 38,851 unintentional poisoning deaths occurred in the United States in 2013. For easy comparison, that is 12.3 deaths per 100,000 people, a number that exceeds the amount of motor vehicle deaths by a substantial margin.

Similarly, unintentional fall deaths are nearly as frequent, leading to a total of 30,208 deaths in 2013, a number that adds up to 9.6 deaths per 100,000 people. Unintentional fall and poisoning deaths do not receive nearly the same amount of media coverage as motor vehicle accident deaths do, despite their wide prevalence, due to their less sensational nature.

Here are a few more eye-opening statistics concerning unintentional injury deaths:

These statistics paint a vivid picture of the wide reaching consequences of wrongful, careless and negligent actions. If you are grieving for a relative or family member lost in a car accident or hurt due to a fire, poisoning, bad fall or other horrible event, know that you are not alone.
