UpLiftLegalFunding.com ranked the names based on claims for personal injuries, such as slips, trips and falls.
According to their research, women (37%) are more likely to be injured from a fall. Men (23%) more likely to be injured at home.
Jared Stern, owner of Uplift Legal Funding, said, "Names are an important aspect of our lives, whether we’re deciding what to name a new addition or dealing with a name given to us – they’re a huge deal. There’s even science out there to suggest that our names can have an impact on our lives, with the power to affect our personalities and even our physicality.
“With this link between us as people and the names we are given, we thought that it would be interesting to take our data and find out which names are associated with those who are more accident prone – I hope for all the Kyles and Haileys out there, the research isn’t completely accurate!”
Good luck and be safe, especially if your name is on this list.
