New Hampshire Car Accidents Come With High Financial Costs

The personal costs a New Hampshire driver, passenger, cyclist or pedestrian suffers when he or she is injured in a motor vehicle accident can be staggering: loss of work, inability to help around the house or enjoy hobbies, and facing an uphill battle in recovering from the crash. Injured parties and their families may also struggle to handle the financial costs of a crash, which can be just as heavy as the personal burdens.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), New Hampshire motor vehicle accidents cost the New Hampshire community $143 million each year. This amount includes $2 million in medical costs and $141 million in costs related to missed work that motorists’ injuries prevent them from performing.

Of these costs, about $44 million, 35 percent, results from injuries caused to motor vehicle drivers and passengers who suffer crashes, according to the CDC. Injuries suffered by motorcyclists account for another $37 million, 26 percent, while injured bicyclists and pedestrians contribute 3 percent and 4 percent to the total, respectively. The remaining 45 percent includes injuries the CDC did not have enough information to categorize, but these injured individuals likely fall into one of the categories already listed.
