Seat belts can cause injuries in some car crashes

Most people know that wearing a seat belt is the law, but what they might not realize is that there is a chance that this life-saving feature could cause injuries. The seat belt stops your body from flying around the vehicle, and possibly out of it, if there is a crash.

Broken bones can occur in car crashes

Car wrecks lead to many types of injuries, including fractures. These occur when one of the bones in the body is broken or cracked as a result of pressure put on them. This is an injury that is usually noticed at the accident site because it causes intense pain in the area of the break. You might also notice discoloration, and the bone might poke through the skin in more serious breaks.

Refresher: Steps to take after a car wreck

When you get into a car wreck, the emotions that you feel might be overwhelming. Stress and adrenaline might make it impossible to remember what you should do next. One of the best ways that you can take the appropriate steps is to review them before you are ever involved in one. You might even want to make a short list to keep in your vehicle, so you can refer to it if you are in a crash.

Speeding drivers can cause serious crashes

Speeding is a huge issue that some drivers don't see as a problem. Unfortunately, the decision not to abide by speed limits is one that can kill innocent people. More than a quarter of traffic fatalities are caused by speeding. This shows just how important it is for drivers to obey speed limits.

Speed limits aren't merely suggestions on roadways

Speed limits on roadways are set based on what is safe for the road and the conditions of it on a dry day. As the name implies, they are the top speed that should be used on the road. Unfortunately, many people think of them as the lowest speed they should go. This poses a hazard to everyone on the road because a driver who is operating a vehicle at a faster speed than what is safe can cause a serious accident.

Rear-end crashes can often be prevented

One of the most common types of car crashes is the rear-end accident. While it is possible that these might occur at high speeds, they are more likely to happen at low speeds. You might think that this means that the victims won't have to worry about serious injuries, but that isn't at all the case. There are many injuries that can impact these innocent people greatly. One of these is whiplash, which can lead to debilitating pain and lack of range of motion.
