We are all, consciously or subconsciously, afraid of something. While some people have very specific, individualized fears, there are some events and/or things that are known to invoke fear and/or anxiety amongst the masses. Each year the National Safety Council puts together a chart, ‘Odds of Dying’, which outlines your odds of dying based on cause. Below are common fears, along with your chance of dying as a result of that item/event.

Drowsy driving accident

Thousands of drivers get behind the wheel every day feeling tired, but not anticipating that anything serious will happen due to their fatigue. However, drowsy driving has become one of the leading causes of serious car accident injuries in the United States. While these accidents have become very common, determining liability in drowsy driving accidents is still difficult.

No Doubt Liability in Car Accidents

Proving liability in car accident claims can be challenging. However, depending on the specific parameters of the accident, proving liability may not be necessary at all. This is due to a factor called no doubt liability, in which it is almost guaranteed that the other party is held liable without any argument from the insurance company.

Witness evidence

Witness evidence can be one of the strongest types of evidence in any car accident situation. More often than not, the only witnesses involved in such occurrences are the drivers of the two vehicles, making it one driver’s word against the other. Should this be the case, it is often difficult for either side’s testimony to hold much weight. For this reason, witness evidence can be key information in car accident cases.
