Identifying Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries


What are the Common Injuries in a Motor Vehicle Accident?

While some motor vehicle accidents may only involve property damage, most accidents involve some degree of bodily injury. The injuries you sustain in a motor vehicle accident can vary greatly depending on several factors such as were you riding a motorcycle; did a semi-truck cause the accident; and, how fast were the cars traveling the time of the crash.

Regardless of the severity of your injuries, you should always seek medical attention following a motor vehicle accident. Some injuries (i.e. closed head injury) may not be easily identified immediately following an accident. Even if you do not need emergency medical attention, it is always in your best interest to follow up with your primary care physician after being involved in a car crash. […]

Filing a Car Accident Claim Stats


How Many Times Will You File a Car Accident Claim?

According to an article published in Forbes, you will file a car accident claim at least once every 17.9 years. If you have never filed a car accident claim and you have been driving over 18 years, consider yourself an exception to the rule or maybe just very lucky. If you accept the premise that drivers will file a car accident claim once every 18 years, the typical driver will be involved in a car accident three to four times during his or her lifetime.

The chances of suffering a serious injury increases with the number of motor vehicle accidents you are involved in during your lifetime. Even though you may take every precaution to be a safe driver, you cannot control what other drivers do while on the road. If every driver on the road is expected to be involved in three to four accidents during their lifetime, the chances you will become a statistic are very high. […]
