5 Injuries You’re More Likely To Suffer Before You Win The Powerball
Everyone wants to win the Powerball, but the odds are kind of against you. 1 in 292,201,338 is not something to bank on. Rather than planning for your windfall of winnings, you might want to prepare for disasters like these — because the odds are much better.
5. Being Killed As A Pedestrian — 1 in 623
You can die just literally walking down the street. Every year, an average of 6,000 people are killed just because they wanted to get to the other side. Even if you survive, the injuries can be devastating and expensive.
4. Receiving A Severe Dog Bite — 1 in 116,448
Those odds seem long, but if you think about it — they’re pretty good. Dog bites are common, and can cause serious injuries. Owners are almost always liable for their dog’s actions, regardless of breed or temperament. If a dog bites you, it’s best to seek legal advice following medical treatment.
3. Dying Due To Medical Care Complications — 1 in 1,523
Medical complications happen all the time. Whether the result is a wrongful death or injuries with lifelong complications — it’s pretty serious.
2. Getting Injured/Killed On A Motorcycle — 1 in 802
Motorcyclists are getting hurt all the time. A lot of the time it’s not their fault and distracted motorists, or other outside factors play into it. A good motorcycle injury attorney is a number you should keep in your saddlebag.
1. Being Killed By A Vending Machine — 1 in 112,000,000
It seems far-fetched, but if you think about the rate of workplace-related accidents… that sort of makes sense. Any time you’ve been injured at work, by a vending machine or anything else, it’s always best to consult a lawyer.
