CDC Reports Fewer Children are Dying in Vermont Car Accidents
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported in February that the rate of fatal car accidents involving children dropped by 43 percent between 2002 and 2011. The report attributes much of this drop to increased use of safety belts. Safety belt use among children ages seven and below rose to 91 percent between 2002 and 2011.
Increased safety belt use may have led to fewer children dying in car accidents over the past nine years, but too many children are still seriously injured in Vermont and other states in avoidable auto accidents every day. When you or your child are made victim by someone else’s driving, you have every right to hold them accountable and seek compensation beyond the offerings of insurance companies.
