As responsible drivers, it is our duty to inspect our vehicle’s headlights and turn signals before we hit the roads. We need to be sure that both front and rear headlamps are working properly and visible enough a couple of yards away.
Also, take a reading of your tire pressure and make sure you maintain the recommended maximum. While at it, take a peek under your vehicle and ensure there are no loose objects or leaks.
Most importantly, stay focused while on the road. Remove all distractions that could cause accidents such as mobile phone use, unstrapped toddlers, etc.
Doing these simple things will definitely help us avoid accidents like the Airport Road 2-vehicle crash.
Injuries Could Happen While on the Road
A personal injury occurs when a person suffers any kind of physical, emotional, or psychological injury. The term “personal injury” covers a wide range of cases that occur from car accidents just as what happened in the crash on East Francis Avenue, assaults, slip and fall accidents, injuries from defective products or machinery, and more cases.
When the involved individual/suspect failed to meet their duty of care, unexpected and unnecessary personal injuries can take place.
Damages from a personal injury lawsuit range from emotional trauma, physical and mental disability, pain and suffering, disfigurement, bodily injuries, and a range of financial losses.
