Beltway Butterfingers: 2013 Clumsiest States Index Reveals Washington, DC Residents are Clumsiest Tech Users in the Nation

SquareTrade®, the #1-rated protection plan trusted by millions of happy customers, today released the results of its annual Clumsiest States Index. The Index reveals how states fare year over year when it comes to their citizens’ rate of iPhone accidents and damage. The Index is based on claims filed by state between October 1, 2012 and September 30, 2013.

“Our Clumsy States Index gives us a chance to look back at the events that transpired over the year and consider how device damage was impacted. For example, we know that 23 million Americans have damaged devices during sporting events: did the Washington Capitals and Redskins’ success last season increase DC’s clumsiness ranking?” commented Ty Shay, CMO at SquareTrade. “Were Hurricane Sandyrelated damages responsible for pushing New Jersey into the top 10 this year? Did the addition of long-awaited Wi-Fi on the New York City subway system nudge the state into the top 10?”
