What Is A Car Accident?
Car accidents are
collisions between automobiles and other objects or
other automobiles. Car or traffic accidents
can cause personal injury or death and property
damage. Every year car
accidents in the
U.S. alone cause tens of thousands of deaths,
millions of injuries and hundreds of billions of
dollars in property damage.
Nearly every one of us will be involved in at least
one car accident within our lifetime. State
laws generally require that the driver(s) involved
in a traffic accident report the accident to the
police if anyone is injured or if there is property
damage over a certain dollar amount. All
states require that automobile drivers carry a
prescribed minimum amount of accident insurance to
cover medical and property damage costs.
When involved in a car accident,
immediately check yourself for injuries and others
for injuries. If there are serious injuries or
more than minor property damage, medical help and
the police should be summoned. Automobiles
involved in an accident are at risk of catching fire
due to the possibility of leaking fuel and should be
evacuated if at all possible. Move to a
location off the roadway to avoid being struck by
another passing automobile. Try not to move any
passenger complaining of back or neck injury.
Carjackers and worse have learned
that they can get people out of their vehicle by
creating a minor traffic accident. If it
appears that your car has been struck intentionally
by another automobile, drive to a nearby well
populated area such as a busy store parking lot
before exiting the vehicle. Police should be
summoned immediately when there is a car accident.
