3 common types of pi accidents
Every day, a milieu of people suffer personal injuries, and consequently need to seek out the best personal injury attorneys they can find. Some personal injuries, however, are far more frequent than others. Here are just a few of the leading personal injuries in the nation:
Ever year, there are more than 6 million car accidents in the United States, 3 million of which cause injuries. Car accidents are so frequent, in fact, that 90 people in the United States die in car accidents, and another 500 older adults (ages 65 and up) are injured in car crashes, every single day.
Medical malpractice is tragically one of the leading causes of death in the United States. Each year between 44,000 to 98,000 Americans die in hospitals due to preventable medical errors. What makes this so sad is the fact that human error is behind almost 80% of adverse events in complex healthcare systems, making it the sixth leading cause of preventable death in America. Whether it’s unnecessary surgery, medication errors, infections born in hospitals, or the adverse effects of medication, medical malpractice is a serious issue, and one of the leading types of personal injury in the country.
Slip and Fall.
Though it may not seem like a big deal, the best personal injury lawyers take on slip and fall cases all the time. According to the National Safety Council, slip and fall accidents accounted for the death of over 20,000 Americans back in 2007, and contributed to more than 7 million injuries.
