Car Accidents in California
Car accidents are the leading cause of long-term disability in the U.S. Despite being a common occurrence, many people do not suspect what follows in the event of a car crash.
When driving, scan the road 1/2 mile to a full mile ahead to check whether there’s a possible hazard. Our bodies are not designed to travel at 50mph. Thus, consciously braking ahead of time will help prevent injuries.
