Motor vehicle accidents
Each year in the United States there are over six million accidents. Fortunately, a large majority involve only property damage—damage to the vehicle as opposed to injury to the occupants. However, one in three accidents involve personal injuries to the driver or passengers, and of that number, two out of every ten accidents leads to fatal injuries.
