A study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) analyzed the cost of auto accidents by including expenses for medical care, lost earnings, auto damage, and other factors. The study revealed that for every auto accident fatality there were eight people who were admitted to the hospital and over 100 who spent time in an emergency room. Non-fatal auto accidents caused 3 million emergency room visits in 2012 at a cost of $18.4 billion.

Consulting a Clayton County attorney after an auto accident enhances a victim's ability to receive a reasonable settlement. If you have been injured in an automobile accident you should discuss your case with an accident attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith.

According to the CDC report, elderly drivers and passengers were the largest demographic among those who were admitted to a hospital following an auto accident. Recovery time was the longest and medical expenses were the highest for this group.

The CDC reported that in 2012, more than 1 million total days were spent hospitals for auto accident-related injuries. The average hospital stay for auto accident-related injuries was over 5 days at an average cost of over $56,000. Average emergency room visits for auto-accident related injuries cost over $3,300.
