Coping with Causing a Serious Accident
Every year in the United States, accidents kill about 100,000 and seriously
injure over 20 million people. Yet statistics about the number of people who
accidentally cause injury or death to another are not available. A
conservative estimate, however, is  over 1 million people per year.
