If you are seriously injured in a car accident, you could wind up suffering from chronic pain for months or even years after the crash. Some people have to deal with it for the rest of their lives.

People often think of pickup trucks as very safe vehicles, perhaps because of their reputation as tough, rugged machines. They are tall and powerful. They have four-wheel drive. They tend to dwarf compact cars and hybrid vehicles. People who drive trucks every day -- even if they're just commuting or heading to the grocery store -- feel safe on the road.
It's important to know all of the rules of a four-way stop, such as the fact that cars arriving at the same time need to allow drivers who are going straight to pass through the intersection before drivers who are turning. It's also important to note that right turns take precedence over left turns and that you're supposed to yield to the right if the cars are on perpendicular roads.
Car accidents happen far too often, and far too many people lose their lives.

When someone else causes a car accident and slams into your vehicle, the problem seems fairly clear: They hit you. Maybe they didn't see a stop sign or got distracted by their phone. You don't necessarily know what happened, but you know that you didn't make any mistakes, and it was their fault.
