HOUSTON COUNTY DEATH STATISTICS
The Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) statistics in a recent year showed Houston County recorded 1,112 deaths, 52 of which were accidental. It is true that not every accidental death is the fault of someone else; however, many are as a result of the careless behavior of others and/or companies that put profits over safety and cut corners in many ways. ADPH statistics show that of the 52 accidental deaths, 23 were from motor vehicle accidents, two were from fire incidents, four were from drownings, and six were from various other types of accidents. While all of these deaths may not be caused by the carelessness or neglect of someone else, often these types of accidents are caused by another person's actions.
