Automobile accidents can happen in the blink of an eye, but can change the course of your life forever. Sudden acceleration and deceleration of an automobile immediately after a collision can have a profound affect upon the occupant inside. Injuries, both internal and external, can be serious or even fatal.
Despite the increasing sophistication of modern automobiles, safety devices often do not fully protect vehicle occupants against substantial injuries. In fact, facial burns and lacerations can often occur when a vehicle’s airbag has deployed. If enough force is imparted upon a vehicle, the integrity of its frame and body work will be compromised, pinning or crushing the person inside the passenger compartment. If this occurs, injuries can be severe and life threatening.
Any number of factors can contribute to the occurrence of an accident. Inattentive, careless or even intoxicated drivers don’t fully appreciate the risks involved in their behavior until it is too late. Similarly, reckless drivers, speeders and scofflaws who purposely throw caution and care to the wind expose the general public to grave and potentially lethal danger. They must be held to account if their behavior results in injury or death.
