Auto Injury Cases
Each year, over 40,000 Americans die in car crashes. Vehicle-related accidents are the leading cause of severe injury or death. In fact, since 2021, seven states have experienced an increase in motor-vehicle deaths of greater than 50%. As more fatal crashes occur, these people need an attorney to help fight. So, what kinds of auto injury leads are abundant this year?
1) Car Accident Injuries
Millions of Americans get on the road and drive to work and school every day. These quick drives should not seem life-threatening, but fatal car crashes are more common than you think. And yet, there are approximately 17,250 car crashes nationwide. More than 90 people die in car accidents every day, with the most common cause of car crashes being drunk driving and speeding. And nearly half of the fatalities – 47% – did not use a seatbelt.
2) Commercial Trucking Accidents
Commercial truck transport is rising, with about 70% of all products reaching their destination via commercial truck. More truck drivers mean more trucking accidents. In fact, every year, there are more than 400,000 road accidents involving large vehicles and trucks.
3) Motorcycle Accidents
Fatalities are more common in motorcycle accidents than in any other road accident. While they only make up about 3% of all registered vehicles, motorcyclists account for 14% of traffic fatalities. Plus, motorcycle accidents have an 80% injury or mortality rate. That’s 4x higher than car accidents. The most common causes of fatal motorcycle crashes include speeding, sudden turns and lane changes, reckless driving, and lane splitting.
At some point in life, everybody is a pedestrian. All pedestrians risk collisions from crossing the street to walking on a sidewalk. Sadly, pedestrian traffic collisions occur more frequently than you think. In fact, more than 7,000 pedestrians were killed by traffic collisions in 2020. That is the equivalent of one death every 75 minutes.
When the pandemic began, more people began cycling. This has resulted in increased cyclist collisions, and biker safety is more important than ever. In fact, on average, nearly 1,000 cyclists die in fatal bicycle accidents, and over 130,000 are injured each year in the United States. These crashes exceed over $23 billion in costs each year.

In the last few years, electric scooters have become a prevalent mode of transportation. A study done by the CDC calculated that for every 100,000 e-scooter trips taken, 20 individuals will end up with a fatal injury. And of those rides, the CDC found that 33% of those injured were first-time riders. In fact, as scooters become a more popular mode of transportation, more accidents will occur. Injuries from micromobility devices like scooters have spiked 127 percent from 2017 to 2021.
Skateboarding is a fun sport and a convenient way to get around. However, this sport can be fatal. The risk of dying while skateboarding is close to zero in a skate park. But this is not the case while riding near or on the road. Only about 5% of skateboarding injuries are severe, which occur from a vehicle accident.
In the United States, there have been approximately 682,000 hit-and-run accidents yearly since 2006. That is equivalent to a daily average of 1,868 hits and crashes. Most of these hit-and-runs are unsolved cases, leaving victims without justice.
