Personal Injuries

Personal Injury Statistics

As a personal injury attorney, I’ve witnessed first-hand the staggering amount of damage personal injuries commit. Furthermore, personal injuries are life changing. How many people are being effected by personal injuries? Around 31 million people across America report personal injuries that need medical attention said the National Center for Health Statistics. Of that 31 million, some 2 million are hospitalized due to serious injury. Consequently, 162,000 of these injuries are fatal. Various types of personal injuries are included in these statistics. The National Highway Safety Administration reports around 5.5 million car accidents in the United States each year. Of those, 3 million were injured and 40,000 were fatal. Semi-truck accidents add another 60,000 injuries and 5,000 deaths each year.

Personal Injury Case Statistics

Of these personal injuries, how many people acquire legal help? In 2005, the U.S. Department of Justice found 60 percent contained some form of personal injury. Furthermore, of the 75 most populous counties in the United States, more than 7,000 personal injury cases were heard in state courts. Only about 4% of personal injury cases even end up in court. Most personal injury cases are settled out of court. Therefore, there are about 409,925 personal injury cases each year in the United States.
