No one wants to hear that someone they know was involved in a car accident. Everyone knows that an accident can be devastating to both the victim and their family. In an ideal world, accidents would never happen; and, if they did, it would be great if everyone were driving slowly, and there would be no damages or injuries from the accident.
However, we all know we do not live in an ideal world. Accidents happen and people are injured because of the accidents. Most motor vehicle accidents are caused by high rates of speed and/or some type of distracted driving. And, even in situations where speed was not the main cause of the crash, the injuries caused by the accident can be much worse than expected.
When there is a sudden impact, someone is probably going to be injured and in pain, and there could even be life-altering injuries. Our bodies are not created to take severe hits and continue moving. Even the smallest accident can cause ongoing pain and bruising. Add to that high rates of speeds and the accident, and injuries sustained, can become very serious.
Some of us learned in our physics class that when an object hits another, the energy from the impact needs to go somewhere. What this typically means is that the vehicles involved in the collision take the brunt of the energy causing everything from a dent to a vehicle being moved with force. However, there are times when the vehicle does not take all of the brunt force and the driver and/or passenger, end up injured. When this happens, you should consider calling an experienced car accident lawyer.
Traffic laws exist for a reason, and even if you are following the law, others may not be, so you could be the victim of a car wreck. Not every driver respects the rules of the road the way you and others do. And others do not understand the responsibility they have when they get behind the wheel.
