Personal Injury Accidents in California
Each year, around 20-50 million people are injured or become disabled due to an auto crash. 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 weren’t designed to travel at 50mph. We were designed for speeds of less than 10mph. Thus, you need to learn to consciously break that natural instinct and focus farther ahead
