Well, here at Accident Claims Advice we thought it would be interesting to see exactly what your lifetime odds of a fatality may be based on reported statistics. From the sad fact that 1 in 7 people will suffer a fatal injury from heart disease or cancer, to 1 in 5,730 people that will accidentally strangle themselves in their sleep. Or compare the fact that water transport is deadlier than air transport by roughly 1 in 7,428 to 1 in 8,015.
To see the full data take a look below and take care next time you may face up against one of these odds.
