Traffic collisions are one of the leading causes of crash-related deaths in California and the United States. An accident occurs when a car crashes against another vehicle, or a stationary object, debris, or tree. It can be rear-ended, head-on, or broadsided, and often leads to death or injuries.
Wounds sustained from vehicle collisions range from traumatic brain injuries, concussions, fractures, broken bones, internal bleeding, to organ damage. Those who survive these injuries sometimes have an altered quality of life, different from what they had before the accident.
To avoid accidents, drivers must practice safe road behaviors at all times and obey traffic rules and regulations. Additionally, they must put their safety, that of their passengers, and other road users first.
