As personal injury lawyers we find these numbers very troubling.
In Canada, over 700 young people (aged 15-24) are killed every year in road crashes, including car accidents, truck accidents and other motor vehicle accidents. On top of that, around 50,000 children are seriously injured in car accidents. These numbers make motor vehicle crashes the leading cause of death among young people, surpassing suicides and other accidents. The Traffic Injury Research Foundation addresses this issue and its future trends in detail and emphasizes the importance of finding new effective initiatives to prevent so many deaths and injuries.
