If you have survived a car accident, you are probably feeling hurt, scared and confused. It can be difficult trying to move on from this stressful time when no one completely understands your physical pain or emotional suffering.
You are not alone when it comes to surviving an auto accident. In fact, the latest research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicates that:
- Combined, car accident victims in the United States spend about one million days in the hospital each year.
- More than 2.5 million people across the United States go to emergency rooms every year due to car accident injuries. Of those, an estimated 200,000 are admitted to the hospital.
- Lifetime medical costs for car accident injury victims cost nearly $18 billion. Around three quarters of those costs occur in the first 18 months following a collision.
- In 2012, income lost due to car accidents in the United States alone was about $33 billion.
The above statistics show you that you are not alone. Many people suffer from the significant impact of non-fatal car accident injuries every single day.
