Losing a loved one is never easy, but it can be even more difficult when they die because of a senseless act. It can be nearly impossible to come to grips with it emotionally, and the victims are left to handle the burden of medical expenses, funeral costs and lost wages by themselves.
It can all happen in an instant, but a car accident can affect your life for years to come. If you or a loved one has ever been in a car accident, you know how terrifying the immediate aftermath can be.
When it comes to motor vehicles, we often think of size as a proxy for safety. Many people buy large SUVs and pickup trucks, in part, at least, because they believe they are safer in such a vehicle than they would be in a sub-compact car. In many crashes, they are probably correct.
Operating a car or truck is an incredible responsibility and requires serious concentration and skill. However, because most people get behind the wheel every day, it can be easy to forget this. In fact, some people are so dismissive of the fact that they are in control of a massive, powerful machine that they do things like use their phones while driving.
