Car Accident

At some point in your life, you will probably be involved in a car accident. It may simply be a bump in the parking lot, or you could end up in a more serious accident where people are injured. In any case, knowing how to react to a car accident will improve the outcome for everyone involved. If you do not follow the proper procedure, your insurance company could refuse to pay your claim. In addition, you could face fines if you do not follow legal procedures. Being aware of the steps to follow will help you when you file police reports and when you file for insurance compensation.

Crashes each year result in thousands of lives lost, hundreds of thousands of injured victims, and billions of dollars in property damage. In 2004 19,091 people were killed in car accidents. Speeding is a factor in about 30 percent of all fatal crashes. About 1,000 crash fatalities result from speeding-related motor vehicle traffic crashes every month. Driver impairment is highly correlated with speeding among drivers involved in fatal crashes. About 41 percent of drivers who were intoxicated (BAC=0.08+) were also speeding as compared to 14 percent for sober drivers.
