Sharks are creatures that incite fear in many people. Their sharp teeth and the legendary tales of shark attacks give most people the jitters. If you are like the millions who think of sharks as vicious man-eaters who are lurking beneath the surf to get a good chomp on your leg, it may interest you to know that there is a lot more danger to be found in your other everyday activities. Your daily work commute, backyard fireworks and even bees are all more likely to cause you severe injury than a shark. Read on to learn which everyday activities are more dangerous than shark attacks.

Shark Attack Statistics
  • On average, there are about 40 shark attacks in the United States each year.
  • There is an average of one death per year from sharks in the U.S.
  • Florida is the state where most shark attacks occur in this country.
  • There are over 500 different types of sharks; only 30 shark breeds have ever been involved in a shark attack.
  • The sharks most often involved in attacks are the Great White, Bull, and Tiger sharks.
  • There is a 1 in 11.5 million chance of being attacked by a shark.
  • The chance of being killed by a shark is less than 1 in 264 million.
So unless you are the 264 millionth person, you will encounter many things on a regular basis that are much more likely to harm you than a shark attack. Let’s have a look at some of the riskiest everyday things we encounter.
  1. Driving
  2. Bees
  3. Trampolines
  4. Fireworks
  5. Vending Machines
  6. Texting
Sharks get a bad rap in our society due to their menacing looks and attacks on humans, which are rare but tend to be headline news. It is important to remember that shark attacks are very unlikely; you could swim in the ocean every day for the rest of your life without ever even seeing a shark. Instead of worrying about Jaws, practice safety during everyday activities. Give TCU Insurance a call at 800-772-8043 for any of your Michiana insurance needs.
