Scottsdale Accident Attorneys
The National Center for Health Statistics, which meticulously tracks and records injuries in the U.S., has compiled the following list of statistics concerning accident injuries in the U.S. According to the NHS, annually in the U.S. there are:
• 1,903,000 injury related hospital discharges
• 29,529,000 injury related emergency room visits
• 31,128,000 injury related doctor’s visits
• 3,852,000 injury related outpatient visits
• 162,000 injury related deaths
Accidents and unintentional injuries are in fact the leading cause of death of those under the age of 35 in the U.S. Accidental deaths are the fifth leading cause of death in the U.S. Accidental deaths rank higher than deaths by suicide or homicide among all age groups in our nation.
The costs of accidental injuries can be astronomical. Statistics show that the average annual emergency room visit costs:
• 6,095,000 for superficial wounds and contusions
• 5,756,000 for open wounds
• 5,510,000 for sprains or strains
• 3,443,000 for fractures and breaks
• 359,000 for injuries to internal organs
For the average accident victim and their family, an accidental injury can have devastating financial consequences. But these are not costs you should be forced to shoulder alone. If you have been injured in an accident that was the fault of another individual or a corporate entity, you may have the right to recover your losses through a personal injury claim or a wrongful death claim.
Car accidents are a leading cause of accidental injuries in the U.S. In fact, over 6 million car accidents occur every single year in the U.S. alone. In nearly half of all accidents someone is injured. Further, around 2 million car accident victims suffer permanent injuries as a result of the accident. Many individuals feel they should just accept a quick settlement from the insurance company following their Arizona automobile accident—but such a decision may leave you with thousands of uncovered future medical bills and years of uncompensated pain and suffering.
