Injury statistics examined by National Safety Council data experts confirm that preventable deaths rose 10% nationwide last year. Based on new injury statistics, an American is accidentally injured every second and killed every three minutes by a preventable event — which may include a vehicle crash, a fall, a drowning, or another preventable incident.
Last year alone, the U.S. had 224,935 preventable deaths and 62 million injuries.
To bring awareness to these startling statistics, our Houston personal injury attorneys at the Hollingsworth Law Firm list some of the most common preventable accidents that lead to catastrophic injuries throughout Texas.
