Many crashes are avoidable - you can pursue a claim if you're hit

Car crashes cause all kinds of injuries, and they can be serious enough to result in death. The worst thing about them is that most are avoidable.

There is nothing worse than knowing that you wouldn't have gotten hurt or lost a loved one if a person had slowed down just a little bit or looked up from their phone a few seconds sooner. It's a tragedy that crashes happen as a result of negligence, reckless behaviors and distractions, but they do every day.

What can you do to avoid a collision?

One of the things you can do to avoid a serious crash is to make sure you are paying attention to the road and to the vehicles around you. It isn't enough to follow the rules of the road yourself. You also need to watch out for others who may make mistakes and put you and others in danger.

If you do see a driver who is weaving or acting recklessly, it's important that you report them. If you can get their license plate number, it's okay to call 911 and have the police check on the driver. They may be intoxicated, suffering from a medical condition or have other reasons that they're driving dangerously, but it is worth looking into to prevent crashes.

If you are hit by someone who is not paying attention or who is acting recklessly, know your rights. You can seek out compensation for what you've been through and seek to have them pay for your medical care, lost wages and other financial losses.
