Shocking Wrongful Death Statistics

The death of a loved one is hard to understand. And when the tragedy comes at the hand of another’s negligence, the confusion and pain grow even worse. No one can plan for such things, and no one is prepared when they happen to the people around them. If a wrongful death tragedy has happened to someone you know, you may take comfort in knowing you aren’t alone. There are others like you have been affected by these tragedies.

Every year there are over 32,000 driving-related fatalities in the US, 31% of which were caused by drunk driving. Around 98,000 people die each year from preventable medical errors, like misdiagnosis and surgical error. That means 98,000 people went in for medical treatment and as a result, are now dead. The workplace can be dangerous as well, with 5,840 accidents happening a year.
