…On average, there are 5.25 million car accidents in the U.S. every year—that works out to about 1 every 60 seconds, according to the National Highway Traffic Administration. Over the past 5 years, 1 in 4 Americans was involved in a car accident. Almost 3 million people a year suffer injuries, ranging from minor to severe, as a result of a car accident, and about 43,000 car accidents result in a fatality annually.
