Where Does Your State Rank in Safety?

State Rank in Safety?NEW YORK – The surveys are in and the numbers have been released. New York is the 15th safest state to live in, according to a WalletHub report. The social website ranked states across 20 key metrics and monitored a variety of safety concerns.

The report analyzed workplace safety, home and community stability, road safety, emergency preparedness, and financial security. New York scored in the top half.

New York personal injury attorneys at Cellino & Barnes said these statistics can help state lawmakers and safety officials focus on areas that need improvement.

“The safest state for home and community was New York,” personal injury attorney Steve Barnes said. “However, the state lagged behind others when it came to workplace and road safety.”

The analysis found North Dakota (the most dangerous state in the occupational injury category) experienced nine times more workplace injuries than Connecticut (the safest state in that category). On the roads, Montana was considered the most dangerous state for drivers, counting three times more fatal crashes per mile than the District of Columbia.

“There are stark differences when you look at roadways and the laws in each state,” Barnes said. “Montana, for example, has one of the highest speed limits in the country and Washington D.C. has one of the lowest speed limits in the nation.”

New Yorkers could also use safer roads, ranking 20th of the 50 states.

WalletHub put Massachusetts at the top of this year’s list of safest states. Mississippi was last, scoring very low in four of the five major categories.

The Empire State was near the bottom of the list for “Natural Disasters,” which analyzed the number of climate disasters causing more than $1 billion in damage and estimated the property losses per capita.
