“Reason is the soul of all law.” -Thomas Hobbes
Many drivers have a false sense of security behind the wheel. This can lead to careless behaviors that endanger every person sharing the road. A single careless driver can change someone’s life in an instant.

Car accidents happen for all types of reasons, from poor driving conditions to problems with the road. However, many car accidents are directly attributed to driver error, such as the following:
When the head, neck, and back are injured, you could be faced with an extensive recovery period. Spinal cord injuries are particularly serious, as they can limit your mobility depending on the extent of the damage. Other types of injuries can cause chronic back or neck pain. .
Head injuries can also result in effects on mental and emotional states. A person might experience problems remembering or retaining new information or develop a depressive or anxiety disorder. Some head injuries can also cause brain damage, which may impact a person’s ability to speak or move. Broken bones, burns, cuts, bruises, and nerve damage can also be caused by a car accident.
Call your local law enforcement to investigate and prepare a report. Document the scene if possible; take pictures of damage to your car and take note of the time and place where the accident occurred. Also, speak with any bystanders and ask if they’re willing to make statement.
