Colorado Springs Car Accident Attorney
Car Crash Statistics
Car accidents are among the leading causes of accidental injury or death in the United States, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported 34,485 fatal car accidents in 2009 alone. Cars and other motor vehicles are the primary means of transportation in our country, and as a result motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for people who are between the ages of 11 and 27. It was estimated that an average of 90 people died every day in motor vehicle crashes in 2010, one every 16 minutes. Thousands upon thousands of individuals and families are affected by accidents every year, and the effects of a serious car accident can last for a lifetime.
According to statistics provided by the Colorado Highway Patrol, El Paso County has the second-highest rate of car accidents in the state. The leading causes of car accidents statewide are reported to be:
- Speeding (which includes exceeding the posted speed limit as well as driving too fast for conditions)
- Distracted driving
- Accidents involving animals such as deer
- Lane violations
- Following too closely
- Drinking and driving
- Failure to yield the right of way
