Well, sure, accidents happen, but very rarely. I think your chances to die in a car accident today are greater than to die in a transporter accident in Trek's future.
Yeah, but will a car accident zap me back down to a deserted planet while my duplicate lives out his life ala Thomas Riker? I think not.

Shuttle please.
in the seconds before impact when your shuttle crashes and burns you wish you had a transporter duplicate to continue your legacy!
However, that is a scenerio where I would opt to use the transporter, duplicates and accidents be damned.
