CDC report sheds light on the cost of crash injuries

It is not news that car accidents can cause lifelong, debilitating injuries. These injuries can lead to people having to find new careers, or even stop working all together. Others will find themselves being billed for tens of thousands of dollars worth of medical services. These are services and treatments that, in many cases, were needed to save their lives -- and are continuously needed try and improve or maintain their quality of life. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently published a report highlighting the financial damage caused by motor vehicle accidents. The results may be shocking to some of our California readers. 

According to the CDC, across the country, people in the U.S. spend more than 1 million days in the hospital due to injuries sustained in accidents.  

However, the news does not stop there. In fact, in 2012 alone, according to the report, crash injuries led to $18 billion in lifetime costs. The same report also claims these injuries in 2012 will lead to $33 billion in work lost due to crash-related injuries. 

What all of this goes to show -- without a doubt -- is that the injuries sustained in car accidents can be not only painful and life changing, but downright expensive too.

If someone else's negligence caused the accident though, know that there may be legal options available to those injured. Depending on the specifics to a person's case, a personal injury attorney will be able to provide more information on what next steps to take.
