In 2010, Ontario Drivers experienced 122,918 collisions, ranging from standard vehicular and pedestrian accidents, to motorcycle and even snow or all-terrain vehicle collisions. Of those, 64,514 sustained some type of injury, ranging from relatively mild to more severe. That accounts for 52%, with another 0.5% recorded as fatal.
These statistics are just that, statistics. Numbers submitted by reporting agencies to Ontario’s Ministry of Transportation, and then inserted into a table and divided by labels such as, “minimal”, “minor” and “major”.
These are not the words that victims of a car accident would use. They do not give context to the trauma and suffering related to this type of event. Figures don’t paint a picture; they don’t take into account the ancillary effects of car accidents on the victim. Numbers aren’t a narrative, a voice or a helping hand.
