national accidental fatality statistics

According to the National Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), unintentional injury is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. In 2020, there were a total of 200,955 unintentional-injury deaths (61.0 deaths per 100,000 population) nationwide; notably, the unintentional-injury death rate increased by 40% between 1999 and 2017 (from 35.3 deaths per 100,000 population to 49.4). The following statistics provide specific details on just a few scenarios that might give rise to a wrongful death case.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

When we think of personal injury, the leading example that comes to most minds are vehicle accidents, and understandably so. In 2020, motor vehicle accident deaths totaled to 40,698 nationwide (12.4 deaths per 100,000 population). Further, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that in the first half of 2021 alone, 20,160 people died in motor vehicle crashes; this number represents an 18.4% increase from the 17,020 fatalities in the first half of the previous year and the highest half-year percentage increase since 2006.

Unintentional Fall

Though fatalities associated with motor vehicle accidents are common, it may surprise some to know that deaths associated with unintentional falls are even more so. In 2020, the CDC reported a total of 42,114 deaths caused by falls. Older people (age of 65 and over) are particularly vulnerable to fall-related injuries; between 2007–2016, the fall-related death rate among this demographic increased by 30% in the United States. If the trend continues, it will translate to seven fall-related deaths every hour by the year 2030.

Unintentional Poisoning

Sadly, death by unintentional poisoning is even more common than traffic-related and fall-related deaths; in 2020, the CDC reported at total of 87,404 deaths by unintentional poisoning (26.5 deaths per 100,000 population). According to the National Safety Council (NSC), this number has been on the rise for years. In 2000, the NSC reported 12,186 deaths by unintentional poisoning (4.4 deaths per 100,000 population); by 2019, the number more than quadrupled to 65,773 deaths (20 deaths per 100,000 population).

Unintentional Drug Overdose

Drug overdoses are often measured as a specific category of poisoning. Unsurprisingly, the ongoing opioid epidemic in the United States is the leading culprit behind the 45,489 preventable deaths caused by opioid overdoses in 2019; those between the ages of 25 and 54 account for 73% of the fatalities. In particular, there were 12,537 such deaths among those aged 25–34 years in 2019; this represents a 4% increase from 2018 and a 921% increase since 1999. Males are especially vulnerable, accounting for 32,131 deaths in 2019 compared to 13,358 female deaths.

Injuries Among Children and Teens

Unintentional injury is the leading cause of death among children and teens in the United States; in 2019, the CDC reported 7,000 unintentional fatalities among those aged 0–19 years. This represents about 20 deaths per day and an increase of 11% since 2010.

Leading causes of wrongful DEath

The various combinations of accidents and injuries as well as the degrees of intentionality in misbehavior—from negligence and recklessness to outright purposefulness—that ultimately give rise to a personal injury case are, quite literally, limitless. In other words, each personal injury case is unique and requires case-by-case attention; wrongful death cases are no exception, and our experienced wrongful death lawyers in Aurora are ready to handle your case.

Below are a few broad categories of wrongful death cases we encounter regularly:

Motor Vehicle Accidents

We are all, of course, familiar with auto accidents; they are commonplace occurrences and are, perhaps, the most characteristic kind of personal injury case. In particular, when envisioning an auto accident, most people probably think of a collision between two standard passenger vehicles. These collisions can be catastrophic in their own right.

However, auto accidents involving larger commercial vehicles are particularly dangerous and present unique legal challenges. The most obvious source of increased danger is the size differential between large commercial vehicles (for example, an 18-wheeler or a passenger bus) and smaller vehicles intended for personal or family use. Simply put, passengers in a smaller vehicle are at a huge disadvantage in a collision with a larger vehicle.

Further, commercial-vehicle accidents involve a number of legal considerations that do not generally arise in accidents between non-commercial vehicles. In particular, there are typically more sources of liability when commercial actors are involved. In an accident involving a loaded 18-wheeler with a cross-country shipment, for example, liability may flow from the shipper, the trucking company, the loader, brokers, and even truck parts or rig manufacturers.

In any serious car accident, you should consult with an attorney. This is especially true when commercial vehicles are involved. If your loved one died in an Aurora car crash, call our Aurora wrongful death lawyers for a free consultation.

Medical Malpractice

The most common legal theory in a personal injury case is the concept of “negligence.” To show negligence, a plaintiff must show that a culpable party breached a duty to use “reasonable care” and that, as a result, the plaintiff suffered a compensable harm. This is often complicated enough.

However, in a medical malpractice claim, the plaintiff must generally prove that the medical professional breached a duty to use reasonable care measured against the prevailing standard of care in the profession. Put differently, where in a standard negligence case the duty of care can be measured intuitively against what an average person may find “reasonable,” in a medical malpractice case the duty of care must be measured against the prevailing standards in the highly technical world of medicine. This can make medical malpractice cases very factually complex.

Workplace Accidents

Workplace accidents comprise a diverse category of personal injury scenarios. Among the most common kinds of workplace accidents are those that occur on construction sites or in heavy industry. These workplaces are often among the most dangerous and prone to accidents.

Further, accidents that occur on sites like these often implicate multiple sources of liability. For example, on a construction site, accident liability may flow from the site owner, the construction company, various contractors and subcontractors, suppliers, and even manufacturers of construction equipment. Like accidents involving commercial vehicles and medical malpractice, such accidents require the attention of an experienced attorney.

Regardless of where the workplace accident occurred, victims and their families often also need help understanding the sources of potential compensation. In particular, an attorney is often necessary to make informed decisions regarding state-by-state worker’s compensation laws and their impact on other sources of compensation. If you lost a loved one in a workplace accident in Aurora, our Aurora personal injury attorneys are ready to help you understand your options.

Defective Products

Unlike most personal injury cases, in which liability typically requires a showing of negligence on the part of the defendant, defective products cases instead employ a concept known as “strict” liability. This simply means that a defendant is liable for injuries caused by their defective product regardless of whether they were negligent or reckless. To successfully bring a products liability case, a plaintiff generally need only show that they used a product purchased from a commercial seller and that a defect—present in that product while it was in the seller’s control—caused an injury.

There are three broad categories of defects: Design defects are those inherent to a product and are present before the product is manufactured. Manufacturing defects are those that are not inherent to a product but are introduced during production. Marketing defects are those associated with a failure to properly warn consumers (for example, with labels or instruction manuals) of potential or unforeseeable dangers in a product.

Proving the nature of a defect, when in was introduced, who introduced it, and whether it was the true cause of an injury can become factually complex very quickly; this is because most products and their constituent parts pass through many hands before being purchased by a consumer. This factual complexity also requires the attention of an experienced attorney. If you are seeking compensation for fatal accident in Aurora caused by a defective product, our Aurora personal injury lawyers are ready to help.


“Wrongful Death” vs. “Survival Action”

Legally, there are two distinct causes of action that can be brought to seek compensation from a culpable party in the event of a death: a “wrongful death” claim and a “survival action.” The difference between the two is straightforward and worth noting.

In a wrongful death case, close family members file a civil action against an at-fault party to seek compensation for the death of a loved one (legally referred to as the “decedent”). Damages in a wrongful death case are perceived to compensate the family members. Damages may compensate for emotional pain and suffering of the family, lost income caused by the death, funeral expenses, and medical bills.

By contrast, a survival action is brought not by family members on their own behalf but by the estate of the deceased person. Damages in a survival action are perceived to compensate the estate; any damages awarded to the estate may then be distributed according to probate or the decedent’s will. Again, damages may include compensation for the decedent’s pain and suffering prior to death, lost earnings, funeral expenses, and medical expenses.

Colorado wrongful death statute

Many states, including Colorado, have specific laws in place governing wrongful death suits. Though these statutes bear many similarities, the differences are often key. An experienced attorney can help you navigate the law in your state.

Who Can Bring a Wrongful Death Suit in Colorado?

Wrongful death suits are brought by close family members seeking compensation for the loss of a relative. The law in Colorado places very specific limits on who may bring such a suit.

In the first year after a death, the decedent’s spouse takes precedent in bringing a wrongful death suit. However, with the spouse’s consent, suit may also be brought separately by the decedent’s heirs (for example, their children or grandchildren) or jointly with the spouse. If there is no spouse, the decedent’s heirs or designated beneficiaries may bring a wrongful death suit.

By contrast, the spouse does not take precedent in bringing suit if initiated in the second year after a death. At that point, a spouse, heirs, or designated beneficiaries may bring suit. Further, if the decedent was unmarried and had no heirs or beneficiaries, the decedent’s parents may bring a wrongful death suit.

Needless to say, the legal implications of these various relations and their power to bring suit can also become complex. Sadly, in the event of a death, they can also lead to intense conflict between the surviving family members. Our experienced personal injury lawyers in Aurora can help you navigate these difficulties.

What Can Be Recovered?

Again, damages in a wrongful death suit are designed to compensate the surviving family members. Economic damages compensate for loss reduceable to a monetary value; non-economic damages compensate for loss that cannot be so reduced. Economic damages include lost wages, life insurance, and funeral/burial expenses; non-economic damages include pain and suffering, grief, loss of companionship (sometimes known as “loss of consortium”), and emotional distress.

There is no cap on the economic damages a court may award; noneconomic damages, on the other hand, are statutorily limited to $250,000 per decedent (this number is adjusted for inflation every two years). The number is different for deaths arising from medical malpractice; further, no cap applies if the death was caused by a “felonious killing” (for example, murder or manslaughter). Our Aurora personal injury lawyers can help you understand the impact of these caps and exceptions on your case.

What is a Statute of Limitations?

Personal injury actions, including wrongful deaths, are governed by “statutes of limitations” set by each state; these laws simply set a deadline after which no one can bring a case seeking compensation. In Colorado, the deadline is two years after the death. This is a very straightforward but all-important concept because, typically, the deadline acts as an absolute bar against suit once time has elapsed.

In other words, if you are contemplating bringing a wrongful death suit, time is of the essence, and you should not wait to speak with an attorney. Our Aurora personal injury attorneys are a call away.

Should I Speak to an Attorney?

If you have suffered the loss of a loved one and are contemplating bringing a wrongful death claim, you are highly advised to speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible. The sooner you speak with an attorney, the better they will be able to work with you to analyze the applicable law, gather the relevant evidence, devise an effective strategy, and ultimately help you secure maximum compensation.

Further, having one of our Aurora wrongful death attorneys evaluate your case can ensure that you know your full rights and are being treated fairly. In particular, beware of speaking to potential defendants or insurance companies about your case prior to consulting with an attorney. Remember that anything you say to an insurance company can be used against you in litigation. Therefore, never sign forms or waivers provided by an insurance company and never admit fault before consulting with an attorney.

I had the privilege of working with Zinda Law Group recently and was thoroughly impressed with the level of service and support they provided.

They went above and beyond to ensure that I was informed and comfortable throughout the process, and their hard work and strong advocacy ultimately led to a successful outcome. I cannot thank Zinda Law Group and their staff enough for their exceptional service and support, and I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of legal assistance. Their commitment to their clients and their willingness to fight for what's right truly sets them apart. In short, I give them a rating of five stars for their outstanding work.

Zinda Law Group is an amazing firm! My case was not without its challenges, but they handled it all in stride. They kept me up to date, kept me informed every step of the way, and ensured I understood the process and all of my options. Burgess, Ryan and their extremely capable staff of Paralegals made a very challenging process as painless as possible. They were kind, compassionate, and patient, and just a real pleasure to work with. I would, and will, recommend them highly to anyone needing an attorney.

I am so glad I called Zinda law group. being hit by a drink driver was the worst experience of my life physically and emotionally. As soon as I reached out they got the ball rolling with all my medical needs. They were in contact with all of my appointments and made my recovery as smooth as possible.

My experience with Zinda Law Group has been OUTSTANDING! Big shoutout to Joe Caputo and his team!I was the passenger in a terrible car accident that left me needing medical attention. The person at faults insurance company reassured me that my medical bills would be taken care of. However, that was not the case. I started receiving multiple calls from debt collectors, and bill after bill by mail. The driver’s insurance company no longer returned my calls, and emails went unanswered. I was so stressed and over my head with how to handle the situation. It was time to call the pros! As soon as I made the call to Zinda Law Group, Joe and his team I were on it! I no longer received calls from debt collectors, so I knew action was taken immediately. I was informed every step of the way, and every call/email was answered. Had I called sooner, I would have never gone through all that stress. I was treated like a friend, not just a client.Thank you Zinda Law Group!
I hired Zinda for a crazy situation involving an 18 wheeler where an object flew off a trailer and blasted through my windshield.I reached out to Zinda and spoke with Michael Cupero, my attorney at Zinda, after the accident once I realized this is affecting my day to day life in a significant way (PTSD from a "Final Destination" type of incident) and Michael was nothing short of fantastic through the entire process.The Zinda team, including Michael and Mary-Catherine Holt and several others, guided me through the entire process from initial settlement offers, filing the lawsuit, depositions, the whole 9.They listened to my concerns, provided clarity and perspective when needed, and not once did I feel that my best interest was not at the forefront of their actions and behavior through my experience as a client.Thank you Michael, Mary-Catherine and Zinda!If you want a team that will treat you with professionalism, respect, and understanding then do yourself a favor and reach out to Zinda!
Extremely professional and communicative . They explained the process as we went along and made it very clear weighting pros and cons. They understood my pain and my worries but kept their expertise always on the top of things finding elements for me to win my case. I am thankful to have had Zinda Law Group to support me during those two years as it finalized and I can keep on living.
My experience with Zinda law group has been wonderful from start to finish. Natasha and Emily explained everything very well and answered any questions I had, communicated well throughout the whole process , and handled the case very professionally, they worked very hard on my case I would definitely highly recommend to friends and family.
I found myself in a situation where I needed legal representation. After looking over reviews in the area, I decided to contact Natasha at Zinda law group in the hopes that she could represent me . Natasha put me at ease with her responsiveness and her ability to accommodate my last minute needs. I had no idea what to expect. It felt like a wave of relief knowing that you're working with a professional that knows what she's doing, and knows how to get things done quickly and efficiently. I appreciate the time and attention that Natasha put into my case. I hope I won't be needing their services again in the future, but I would absolutely contact them again if I do. Thanks again

They were very thorough in explaining the different scenarios, and extremely transparent with all the possible outcomes.Thank you to every person who aided in the success of my case, all of whom were exceptional in their tasks and working as a team.
The Zinda Law Group was outstanding in helping me with my aunts case. My two Attorneys Neil and Shivangi were very compassionate, kind, eager to help, and really listen carefully and attentively to my case about my aunt. My aunt got hit by a driver while crossing the street and killed. I went after the guys insurance; although, this doesn't bring back my aunt, but allows for this not to happen to other people like this in her case. These attorneys worked very hard and efficiently to bring the justice that they saw fit. When I had a question they explained in terms I understood and not above and beyond me. I appreciate it when people can come down to my level and not intimidate and use trepidation on someone in feeling like they are the fly while they're the spider waiting for the right moment for the fly to walk into its web.Neil and Shivangi always whenever they called asked me how I was at the beginning of our conversations and is there anything I needed at the end of each call. Each call they made to me, was made very professional, personable and felt heart felt as if you were part of the family. At the end of each subject matter they always asked, "Do you have any questions for me before we go to the next thing we need to talk about?" They always wanted to make sure I understood everything before the next item we needed to talk about. These guys really are good and want to please the client anyway they can I thought; when I first started talking to them. I give them above and beyond a 5-Star rating if there was such a thing. I Highly Recommend The Zinda Law Group to Anyone who needs them. This is what I give them if I could!!💯💯💯💯💯 and👍👍👍👍👍 and⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐❗❗❗THANK YOU TO NEIL, SHIVANGI, MARA AND TO EVERYONE AT THE ZINDA LAW GROUP WHO WORKED ON MY CASE!! I APPRECIATE YOU ALL!
I would like to recognize a fantastic attorney named Joe Caputo from Zinda Law Group. I was involved in an auto accident that had many complicated moving parts that were hard to navigate and understand as a victim. Joe was so gracious and spent quality time explaining what courses of action I needed to take as a victim to protect myself. Joe was also diligent in following up with me regarding my case and provided guides and checklists that were extremely helpful to keep things organized and moving. Joe was always readily available for my questions and responded promptly. Joe Caputo's excellent counsel ensured I protected myself when dealing with the opposing insurance company and ensured the best possible outcome for my case. Joe's expertise in personal injury lawsuits helped alleviate the stress and anxiety that follows the aftermath of an auto accident. Thanks again Joe! You are truly an amazing, kind person and attorney!
Zinda Law was incredibly amazing. I had the pleasure of working with Michael and his incredibly hard working team after my wreck in November. They went above and beyond keeping up with my health, bills, insurance companies, all that fun stuff I had no time for. After what felt like such a short amount of time, they were able to win every last penny from the "bad guys" insurance (loved that term). I couldn't happier, and even though I went through something traumatic, it was still the best experience I could have ever asked for. Thank you Michael and everyone that helped with my case, yall are the best!!
My attorney was Christina , she and her team gave me the best outcome for my case .I am giving an honesty review at first I was very upset because I kept getting moved around and I never knew who I was talking to because they switch attorneys and kept changing my paralegals.. I was going to go with another law firm but Christina helped me with my case from then on out and she worked around my schedule to talk to me which I appreciate. Also my last law firm took 30 percent, and this one took 33 percent which I wasn’t to happy so just a heads up. Overall I rate this 4 stars cause I’m just happy the case is over with and I get to go back to my life.Update: I just received another call from my attorney and they have worked to negotiate my case with the billing and have put more money in my pocket. All the money that I had spent while working on the case has came back to me. I can fully move on and say that I have gain every penny that was lose during those hard times. I’m so happy and thankful to Zinda law group!!!!!!
Zinda Law Group did an excellent job with my case. The staff was super friendly and super effective as far as communicating with me throughout the entire case. I highly recommend Zinda Law Group for your next case and for any of your future cases. 5 Stars across the board thank you so much for everything!
Joh Harper, Priyonka Bhikha, and the rest of the team gave my case a quick and satisfactory conclusion. The attorney, Mr. Harper did an absolutely amazing job keeping me on the same page as far as the case goes. Honestly, if anybody is hurt in a car wreck or another personal injury case, I WILL STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU SPEAK TO THEM.
I was in a motor vehicle collision about two years ago. From the minute I picked up the phone to speak with a representative to the case finally settling, it was a great experience. I worked with Burgess Williams and his team (Kathy, Ryan, and Linda) throughout the process. They were all very professional and helpful when I needed them the most.
Great Firm. I was in motorcycle accident- T-boned at a full stop with my daughter riding on back. Zinda's team was instantly responsive. Christina was very compassionate, organized and scheduled time before every legal event to discuss goals and overview. The process was 2 years but during that time the lawyers and staff (John and Shane were also great) were always available and understanding. The team is focused on doing what is right and by the book. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone who is suffering from a motorcycle accident.
Jason Aldridge and his paralegal Mara did an absolutely amazing job on my case. They were very responsive to all emails, calls and even texts. They treated me with dignity and respect from start to finish. I never once felt like my case was at the back of the list or anything. Not only did they explain and walked me through everything, they got me the help I needed and a final outcome over what I had expected. I would highly recommend this law firm, Jason and Mara to anyone seeking legal assistance.
Highly Recommended-100% Satisfied!.From the initial phone call I felt confident I chose the right firm. They explained the process and I was always in the loop, even when we were at a stand still. Very grateful I was quickly referred to them by a friend who had a similar case. Both of us are happy with the end result. Thank you!
My team of lawyer were very professional and communicated extremely clearly. They kept me updated on their status and did not make me worry at all about my situation. They explained everything to me very well and put things into simple terms for my understanding. I am very satisfied with their performance.
I would recommend them to anyone that's been involved in an accident and feels skeptical in engaging an attorney.When one gets into an accident, you're traumatized, confused, angry and helpless.That was me last year, getting all kinds of advice becomes your next norm, to use or not to use an attorney.I was in so much pain from my injuries but at the same time knew I had to act fast.I called Zinda Law Group for consultation, they took my case seriously and treated me with respect, they were very professional and understanding.Elizabeth, kudos to you, you're true to your word, Integrity should be your last name.Jason Aldridge my attorney went to work immediately, he assured me that all be well and I should concentrate on my healing and he will do the rest. Thank your Sir, You did just that.His team, Mara, Zuleyma and Andrew, they all become my support system, so professional and lots of respect in each and everyphone call or email. Thank you guys.I would recommend anyone to use Zinda Law Group.
I honestly loved not dealing with the hospital bills while I was recuperating. It gave me peace of mind going through this process and Zinda took care of everything. They found awesome health providers for me and haven't had to worry about anything while they've been taking my case. I've been well informed, communicated with, responded to and understood by Zinda. They have been efficient and effective while working on my case and I'm so glad I choose to go with this law firm.
When I was injured in a car accident in March of 2020 the insurance companies were not concerned with my well being. I called Zinda Law group & spoke with Reagan, who went over my concerns & later had Jono contact me. After reviewing my information with Jono my case was immediately put in motion. I worked mainly with Sam Thomas who truly was a blessing to me, he was very supportive & genuinely concerned with my well being, everything wasn't simply about the case it was about me being healed & getting the proper treatment that I needed. Sam was also emotionally supportive when I went through several losses in my family & is a great friend. In all everyone was extremely supportive & all worked for me which was quite a different legal experience for me from Law groups in my past. I was well supported, always informed, treated with respect & made the priority in all decisions. Zinda Law Group made sure I was compensated completely & that I didn't have financial stresses over hospital bills after all was said & done. Sam, Katrina, Mary Catherine, Reagan & Jono I just want to thank you & all of Zinda for the incredible experience & the wonderful caring people that you all are, you are truly Golden in your field.
I am so glad I got in touch with Zinda! My car accident occurred just 4 days prior to moving, during the busiest week of the year at my job, and just a week before the quarantine was declared a new reality for all of us. Everyone at Zinda remained persistent, supportive, and most of all advocated for me throughout such a chaotic time. I’ll always be grateful for the care they took to make sure my health and well-being were taken care of. So super grateful to know that a split second mistake someone else made doesn’t have to dictate my life. Thanks!
My experience with Zinda Law Group was better than expected. After an accident that totalled my car, I reached out and was paired with a wonderful attorney. She communicated frequently and responded to my calls and texts in a timely manner. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and answered all of my questions. I was kept in the loop during every step of the process. I would call Zinda Law if I ever need this type of support again.
I had an excellent experience working with the attorneys at Zinda Law Group! They were knowledgeable, professional and patient. They walked me through every step of the long process of getting treatment after my car wreck and kept me updated with timeframes and next steps. I would absolutely recommend anyone working with them!
They helped me with so much! I had a dog bite happen 2019 and it was very heart breaking! This law group made everything so easy to help me through a rough time! John Rogers and Shane Eckert were very easy to talk to and open about if I needed to talk about frustrations I had with bills. Everything got closed before Christmas and I was so blessed! I highly recommend them no matter what! Thank you guys so much!
Zinda Law Group helped me with my personal injury case after an auto accident. I was hurt pretty badly and I wasn't sure which attorney to call, I looked at reviews for Zinda Law and called right away.Kaitlin Nares and her team were so responsive and helpful. Kaitlin called me right away and helped me navigate through a very difficult process and time in my life. Being hurt in a car accident changes you!!! My case settled for more than I thought it would, and a lot quicker. I know sometimes things are more complicated, but my case was settled in only 3 months after my accident. Mary-Catherine was also so helpful in making sure everything was finalized! I have referred two people who have recently been in auto accident because it's not IF, its WHEN these days... I usually don't write reviews unless I feel strongly about sharing my experience to help others! Thank you!!!
I was referred here by a family member. Our lawyer jason and his team did and amazing job. They kept me updated in everything made sure I understood what was going on. My son was hit by a van in the hospital jason came right over. He's awesome so much down to earth straight forward. I would recommend him and his firm to everyone and I have thank you zinda but most of all thank you Jason for being there for us for being a friend
Zinda Law Group was recommended to me from another satisfied client and I certainly received excellent service. The attorneys and staff are very proactive with communication and I knew every step of the way what was happening on my case. I never felt pressured with decision making and they went above & beyond to answer questions with satifactory explanations. This is a very professional group of attorneys & support staff. In addition, they were willing to meet me at a location more convenient for me. I appreciated their concern for my time.
Could not speak highly enough of the firm. I was involved in my first accident and thankfully had Zinda Law Group supporting me through the scary time. Jono took care of me every step of the way. He made me feel like I was a priority through the entire process. A big thank you to Jono and the rest of the Zinda crew!
