Though we rarely think about how dangerous motor vehicles can be, the statistics are sobering. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an estimated 33,963 people died in car accidents during 2009. On average, approximately 40,000 deaths and more than 2.5 million injuries occur as a result of motor vehicle accidents each year. Car accidents can include car crashes, truck accidents, tractor trailer accidents, farm equipment accidents, motorcycle accidents, ATV accidents, bus accidents, van accidents, drunk driving, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents and uninsured and underinsured motorists.
In addition to being frightening, an auto accident can result in serious injuries such as brain damage, spinal cord injury or crushing.
