Car accidents are often caused by human error such as a person lost control of the car because they were using a mobile phone or changing the radio station. They are also caused sadly when drivers are careless enough to drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Sometimes drivers are just reckless jumping traffic lights, speeding and often misjudging the speed of oncoming traffic.
However, in other car accidents it is down to a mechanical fault with the car such as faulty brakes. It can also be due to hazardous weather conditions such as ice on the roads making the drivers lose control of the vehicle causing a crash.
No matter how the accident was caused though they are still leaving victims with a long list of life changing injuries. You may be lucky and just get mild scrapes, cuts and bruises and even fractures are quite straight forward and easy to fix with a plaster cast but some people are not so lucky and sustain injuries like brain damage and spinal injuries.
The extent and types of injuries depend on the circumstances of the accident like what we mentioned above such as the speed of the vehicles, the type of vehicle and the victim’s general health and age for example small children and the elderly are sadly more prone to serious injuries.
