What is the leading killer of people under 45?

Attorneys use a lot of terminology that you might not hear in day to day life. One of those phrases is “unintentional injury.” It doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, but it’s important to talk about.

Unintentional injury is the leading cause of death for people under age 45 in the United States. A closer look at the statistics confirms that over 60,000 Americans died from such causes in 2016 (the most recent data available), which is nearly double the total deaths from medical conditions such as heart disease and cancer among that age group.

Everyone on the road has a role in preventing motorcycle crashes

Motorcycle crashes are among some of the deadliest and most injurious collisions year after year. Motorcyclists and their passengers are at a heightened level of exposure and risk of injury from collisions. While it is important that these riders take the necessary safety precautions to avoid accidents and injury, the responsibility of motorcycle safety does not stop there.

Every person on the road, whether operating a two, three, four or 18-wheeled vehicle, can contribute to the safety of motorcyclists in Georgia. In addition to the training and safety precautions these riders take, drivers need to do their part in understanding and mitigating the risks of serious injury or death in a motorcycle collision.
