Up to 50,000 Americans die each year in wrongful death accidents from seizures and other related incidents caused by epilepsy, but how does this data on epilepsy affect car accident statistics?
Our car accident attorneys believe that with more and more epilepsy diagnoses, there will be an increase in automobile accidents and fatal car accidents due to drivers suffering from epileptic seizures while behind the wheel.
Epilepsy in America is as common as breast cancer and just as many people die from it. More than three million Americans are affected by epilepsy, with 200,000 new cases every single year.
According to experts, one in ten people will have a seizure in their lifetime. The mortality rate for people with epilepsy is two to three times higher than the average person and their chance of death is 24 times greater than the general populous.
But studies show that the opposite might also be true.
Car accidents could increase the number of epilepsy cases seen in the United States because epilepsy tends to occur in injured persons who have suffered traumatic head injuries.
Aside from handling auto accidents, we are also personal injury lawyers, and believe that anyone having pain and suffering caused in a car accident should not have to struggle alone, especially if those personal injuries lead to medical bills and the development of epilepsy.
