Accident-prone People Do Exist

I think many people probably have observed that certain people seem to attract accidents, and these people tend to have one accident after the other (a series of unfortunate events?), as if luck is never on their side. Now based on the survey, it is confirmed statistically that this type of people do exist.


Strikingly, it appears that there is a discrete group of people who suffer the most accidents: 1 in 29 people have a 50 per cent higher chance of having an accident than the rest of the population (Accident Analysis and Prevention, DOI: 10.1016/j.aap.2006.09.012).

The study, however, cannot identify who these people are and does not explain why these people are always having bad luck. However, It is still interesting to "prove" that these people do exist. Of course, you probably won’t be laughing if you are one of this kind. By the way, my feeling is that more females are accident-prone than males. It is not in the study, but it is just what I feel. That is, I can be wrong.

Wish you all best luck :p
