Demerath Law - Home to the preeminent Grand Island Car Wreck Lawyer.
Car wrecks may often result in severe and disabling injuries. It's no surprise, but when steel and flesh collide at highway speeds, flesh often looses. Some of the most common injuries that result from car wrecks include soft tissue damage, whiplash, head injuries, broken bones, air bag burns, and more. Some of the more severe types of injures are crushing injuries, pining injuries, severe burns from fuel induced fire, and spinal cord and brain injuries.
Drivers can do much to reduce the likelihood of even getting into a car wreck. And it's common knowledge that the best way to prevent car wreck related injuries is to avoid the car wreck altogether. Drivers should opt for vehicles with passive safety features like air bags, side and curtain air bags, anti lock brakes, fog lights, etc. Moreover, advanced active safety features like electronic stability control and active restraints further reduce the likelihood of getting into a crash or suffering severe injuries.
Governments can also do their part to make the roads safer. States should maintain roadways to be free of potholes, uneven surfaces, and un-banked high speed turns. Sates can also make certain that traffic signals and road markers are clear, clean, and maintained. States can also make sure that drivers have plenty of rest areas to take advantage of when drivers feel fatigued. Safer roads lead to fewer car wrecks, and are an important step in reducing injuries related to car wrecks.
