Car Crash Injuries Up.
Newsweek reports that U.S. traffic deaths, injuries and related costs are up in 2015.
The United States is on track to have its deadliest traffic year since 2007, the National Safety Council says, with nearly 19,000 people killed as a result of motor vehicle accidents between January and June—a 14 percent increase over the same period last year. The number of injuries and the costs associated with traffic accidents also rose significantly, according to estimates from NSC’s statistics department released Monday.
Nearly 2.3 million “serious injuries,” which the NSC defines as those requiring medical consultation, were sustained during the six-month period, up 30 percent when compared with the first half of 2014. In a similar upward trend, the estimated costs of these crashes—including medical expenses, wage and productivity losses and property damage—increased 24 percent, to roughly $152 billion.
NOLO reports that the most common types of personal injuries from car crashes range from concussions to traumatic brain injury. Even when there is no physical sign of trauma, the brain is at risk of being jostled inside the skull because of the impact of a car crash. Next on the list are back injuries. The impact of the crash and resulting torque on the bodies of drivers and passengers can cause fractures, disc injury, lumbar radiculopathy and spine injury. Face injuries are also on the list. These injuries range from temporomandibular disorders to serious dental injuries.
The average time to get a personal injury case to trial can be between two to four years. This creates a severe hardship of the victims of car crashes and their families. People with car crash injury may be permanently disabled and unable to work. This is where Lance Lawsuit Funding can help.
