How Often Does the Average Person Get in a Car Accident?
According to most car insurance industry estimates, the average person gets into a car accident about once every 18 years. This means that, over the course of an average person’s driving lifespan, they are likely to get in about 3 or 4 accidents.
Additionally, a study conducted by Esurance, 77% of motorists have been involved in at least one accident. The same report also noted that your chance of being in an accident on a 1,000-mile trip is 1 in 366.
While these numbers can seem somewhat alarming, the good news is that the majority of car accidents are relatively minor with mild or no injuries. However, the Maryland Department of Transportation reports that there were 530 traffic-related fatalities in 2019—a nearly 4% increase from the previous year. Year after year, studies show that there are tens of thousands of car accidents in Maryland alone, with tens of thousands of people suffering injuries as a result.
While the average person may go nearly 20 years without being involved in an accident, motor vehicle collisions happen every single day on our highways and roads—and thousands of people are affected annually. If you were injured in a car accident or lost a loved one in a devastating crash, our firm is here to help. Contact our Laurel car accident lawyers right away for a free consultation.
