Understanding Car Accident Fatality Rates
Car accident fatalities are a preventable public health crisis in America. According to a report by Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the nation averaged 11.7 vehicle fatalities per 100,000 people and 1.34 deaths per 100 million miles traveled in 2020. Additionally, IIHS found the fatality rate for Arizona motorists was higher than the national average, with 14.7 deaths per 100,000 people and 1.60 deaths per 100 million miles traveled.
How Driver Performance Contributes To Car Accidents
In a statistical analysis by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 94% of all vehicle crashes are caused by driver error. These can be further broken down into the following error categories:
- Recognition: the most prevalent cause of crashes, this error is the overarching category for inattentiveness to the road, distracted driving, and lack of road surveillance.
- Decision: this error type breaks down into incorrect evaluations of the road, such as speeding, taking a curve too quickly, misjudgment of gaps in traffic, and performing illegal traffic maneuvers.
- Performance: this cause of accidents amounts to poor driving performance, such as overcompensation and directional control.
- Non-Performance: this final category essentially amounts to falling asleep at the wheel.
Regardless of the circumstances of the crash, if another individual was at fault for the accident, they can be held liable for the damages you sustained.
