Car accidents happen every 10 seconds, every day in the U.S., about 6 million accidents a year. In these accidents, over 3 million people are injured, and tens of thousands are killed. The statistics are just as shocking for the state of Michigan. There are hundreds of thousands of car accidents a year in the state, with over 50 thousand injuries resulting from those accidents and hundreds of deaths. Car accidents can have devastating results for the victims and their families. Some accidents are so severe, they destroy the lives of those involved and their families.
Victims of car accidents can suffer severe injuries that have a life-long impact. These types of injuries can make life difficult for the victims and their families. The costs of medical bills and extensive medical treatments could be very costly. Severe injuries can prevent people from living their lives as they once did, prior to the accident. They may not be able to engage in the activities they did prior to their accident, such as work, run errands, do household chores and many other activities the injury prevents. Severe injuries can cause extreme mental and emotional distress to victims and their families.
Some victims of car accidents are killed. These untimely deaths can destroy families and leave them feeling dismayed. The family members left behind could suffer for the rest of lives with the loss of their loved one. Aside from the mental and emotional distress they will deal with, they lose a contributing member of their family. A lost loved one can no longer provide financially to the family, they will not pass on their knowledge and love to those left behind. Children grow up without parents, parents lose a child before their time, any scenario where a family losing someone they love could destroy the future they envisioned before the car accident which took that victim’s life.
Car accidents can be horrific situations which devastate and change lives forever.
