Google is quite a powerful tool when it comes to searching for information. And there are billions of searches each day. What’s fascinating is to learn what searches are common. And when it comes to our most Googled injuries, a Chicago-based personal injury law firm, Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers, has done the hard part for us. They analyzed Google data to see which personal injuries and ailments each state is searching for the most.
A spokesperson for Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers said:
“Injuries are always unexpected and can have a long-time effect both mentally and physically. This research highlights what injuries individuals are searching and are most concerned about, by spreading this knowledge we can make people more aware of what some of the most common injuries are. It is fascinating to see how this research is reflective across all the states, such as bursitis being the top searched injury in 32 states.”
Another important concern? Workplace injuries. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2020, there were an estimated 1.8 million workers in the US who sustained work-related injuries. And these injuries resulted in emergency department treatments.
For this study, Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers looked at a list of 102 injuries across the United States and determined the top five most Googled injuries in each state.
When it came to Georgia and South Carolina, the lists were very similar. The rankings were slightly different on each though. And from what it looks like, Georgians are a bit more concerned about injuries than South Carolina. Georgia definitely did more searches overall for injuries it seems!
Methodology: Google keyword planner data was taken for a list of 102 injuries for each State over the last 12 months, average monthly search volume was then used to rank each injury. Some injuries were removed because they were ambiguous or posed issues with not being able to establish search intent.
