According to New York’s Department of Health, as many as 8,000 New Yorkers lose their lives every year as a result of being injured, and over 155,000 individuals are severely injured and hospitalized annually. Personal injury might not be something that people think about daily, but it is a major threat that could impact the average New Yorker, including Brooklyn, at any time.
Statistics from the aforementioned New York Department of Health shows that while personal injury deaths remain fairly steady in the past, they have been increasing over the past few years. The rate of death due to personal injury in the state of New York sits at around 41 individuals per 100,000 people, and the current rate of hospitalizations as a result of personal injury is 823 individuals per 100,000 people. The latter constitutes about one percent of the state’s population, and it should be noted that these numbers only reflect individuals who were severely injured enough to be hospitalized, and does not include all individuals who were treated at a hospital or emergency room as a result of their injuries.
