The numbers say it all! Yes, here is a reason to smile for all those people who have been worrying sick about road accidents. This is because there seems to be an improvement in driving habits of people in general. Did you know the number of highway deaths dropped to 32,885 in 2011, a number that is the lowest since 1949. Deaths due to drunken driving has also dropped to 4.9%. So, apparently, attorneys specializing in personal injury due to road accidents seem to have less job on hands, right? Wrong! They may have lesser number of cases to handle compared to previous years. There might also have been a sharp decrease in the demand for road accident lawyers, but there are more numbers that you have to know before reaching a definite conclusion!
