Several recent posts have discussed car and automobile accident statistics published by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration [NHTSA]. Some Maryland car accident lawyers familiar with the studies have noted some anomalies. For example, the study recites that in 2010, 32,885 people died in motor vehicle accidents. The study sets forth that of that total, 32,704 were occupants of cars, trucks, riding on motorcycles or bicycles, or were pedestrians. That means that 181 people killed in a car and automobile accident were not occupants of cars, trucks, riding on motorcycles or bicycles, or were pedestrians. Some Maryland car accident lawyers have wondered where these unfortunate individuals were when they were involved in the car or automobile accident.
