Motor Vehicle Accidents Archives

A pedestrian dies every 88 minutes

It's all too easy to think of car accidents as something that happens to other people, and that makes them feel less common -- like less of a threat than they really are. When you break down the statistics, though, it can really bring home the level of risk that you actually face.

Head-on crash injures 3 and kills 4

Head-on car crashes are often talked about as the most violent and dangerous collisions that people can have. The sheer amount of force involved is astronomical, and that is magnified since it is not just a glancing blow. Plus, the head-on crash means that the passenger compartments slam straight into one another with little to protect them but the engine.

Should you really hold the wheel at 10 and 2?

For decades, driving instructors told their students to hold the wheel at "10 and 2," meaning the positions where 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock would be if the wheel was actually the face of that clock. The idea was simply to get drivers to keep both hands on the wheel, near the top, where they would have the most control over the car.

A car accident could give you PTSD

Car accidents can lead to all sorts of physical ailments, from bruises to head injuries to broken bones. The first line of treatment that you get after a crash is going to focus on figuring out what is wrong physically and helping you heal. In extreme situations, doctors are just trying to stabilize you and keep you alive before looking at the long-term results.
