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.
