Car / Auto Accidents
All a car accident needs to happen is a split second of inattention, carelessness or bad judgment. The damage can range from little or no damage at all (usually called a fender-bender) to devastating loss of life. Although the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports a marked decrease in the number of fatal car accidents in 2008 in the U.S. – the lowest since 1961 – car crashes with devastating injuries are still a daily occurrence.
