1. Minimum Accident Speed to Cause Injury

Studies involving live humans have demonstrated that a motor vehicle accident collision of as little as 5 mph can induce cervical (neck) injury. However, other studies have shown that cars can often withstand crashes of 10 mph or more without sustaining damage.

2. Time for Symptoms to Present

Symptoms arising from injuries sustained in motor vehicle accidents were once thought to present immediately following the accident. However, research and clinic experience now demonstrate that a delay of symptom onset seems to be the norm. Also, delay of symptom onset does not eliminate the possibility of severe injury.

3. Number of Disabilities from Automobile Accidents

Most experts have found that 10 percent of all motor vehicle accident victims become disabled.

4. Symptom Resolution Statistics

Many studies have found a significant number of individuals to be symptomatic for many months and even years after a motor vehicle accident. In one such study, 75 percent of individuals remained symptomatic 6 months after the accident.

Another study, published in the European Spine Journal, found that during the period of time between the first and second years following a motor vehicle accident over 20 percent actually had their symptoms worsen.

5. Number of Annual Motor Vehicle Accidents

According to the National Safety Council (NSA), there are more than 12 million motor vehicle accidents annually including more than 20 million vehicles. This results in over 5 million non-fatal accidents annually of which approximately 2 million are disabling injuries including approximately 1 million work-related auto disabling injuries.

6. Injury Severity in Motor Vehicle Accidents

A 1990 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) study reported found that about 28 percent of occupants in motor vehicle accidents incur minor to moderate injury while 6 percent incur severe to fatal injuries.  

7. Likelihood of being Involved in a Motor Vehicle Accident

The US Department of Transportation estimates that the typical driver will have a near automobile accident one to two times per month and all will be in a collision of some type on average of every 6 years. 

8. Annual Costs of Motor Vehicle Accidents

According to a report released back in 1993, the total costs for motor vehicle accidents in the US was over $333 billion in 1988.  

9. Who Pays for Injuries Sustained in Motor Vehicle Accidents?

According to the Insurance Research Council:

  • 63 percent of injuries are paid by the injured individuals own automobile insurance company
  • 55 percent of injuries are paid by the auto insurance company of another vehicle
  • 36 percent of injuries are paid by health insurance
  • 20 percent of injuries are paid by government programs
  • 19 percent of injuries are paid workers' compensation insurance

Testimonial

I have been a patient of Dr. Pisarek for a few years now. Every morning I have to say "thank you Dr. P.!". Your care and your treatment renew my energy... no more pains in my lower back, knee and foot. With your help I lost 20 pounds and I am keeping it off. I am really grateful to you and your wife Hilda for taking care of me. My retirement got a new meaning, thanks to you.
