The facts are staggering. There are approximately 6 million car accidents in the United States every year. Of these 6 million car accidents, there are 3 million injuries–about 2 million of which are permanent, including paralysis, paraplegia and quadriplegia. Car accidents are responsible for killing over 40,000 people each year. Fatal car accidents serve as the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 34. Every day, approximately 115 people die from motor vehicle accidents. Damages from auto crashes total $150 billion annually. One of every 100 Americans will be in a car accident this year. Most of us will be in at least one car accident by the time we reach age 30. Many car accidents are minor, but many others are devastating. Physical injury is not the only cost. Economic loss from car accidents was $230.6 billion in 2000. This included time lost from work, property damage, medical expenses and traffic delays. Car accidents also leave emotional injuries. According to the American Psychological Association, car accidents are the most frequent cause of emotional trauma for men and the number two source of trauma for women.
