Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention should serve as a reminder to consumers, especially men, of the importance of investing in a life insurance policy.
According to the CDC website, men are statistically at an increased risk for serious injuries and health problems during the summer months. This is due to things ranging from motor vehicle traffic to poisonings to drowning.
The federal health agency reports that the combination of deaths from poisonings, drownings, falls and motor vehicle accidents was the leading cause of unintentional injury deaths for men aged 15 to 44. The report also notes that men are statistically less likely than women to wear seat belts, and they are more than twice as likely to suffer a traumatic brain injury.
With these things in mind, the CDC advises people to always buckle up when driving, and to always be sure their child is properly secured in a safety seat.
Also, it’s important to find another ride if one becomes impaired by alcohol or drugs, and those riding bicycles and motorcycles should wear helmets and other protective gear. With thousands of people each year dying unexpectedly from a wide range of mishaps, investing in the right life insurance policy is a potentially wise move.
