What Percentage of Car Accidents Are Fatal?

Car accidents happen far too often, and far too often, they are fatal. If another driver’s negligence leaves you or your loved one injured – or worse – in a car accident, it’s time to consult with an experienced Atlanta car accident attorney.

The Numbers

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) reports the following numbers in response to the percentage of car accidents that are fatal in the United States:

  • In 2019, there were 36,096 car crash fatalities in the United States.
  • This statistic translates to 11 fatalities per 100,000 people, and 1.11 fatalities per 100 million miles traveled.
  • The fatality rate per 100 million miles traveled ranges from a low of 0.51 in Massachusetts to a high of 1.73 in South Carolina.
  • The fatality rate per 100 million miles traveled in the State of Georgia is 1.12.

Fatal car accidents happen, and the numbers in Georgia are not encouraging.
