most comparisons only list crimes/violence/murders; is there a way to correlate accidental injuries/deaths in the city/metro level.

Accidental injuries are just not as interesting to the public as crime, but there is data available on traffic accident deaths if you search hard for it. I don't think I've ever seen data on other accidents, like falling off a roof or electrodution.
