Unlike a hurricane or other natural disaster, a vehicle accident does not come with a week’s worth of warnings and anticipation but its lingering effects can last a life time. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), someone in the United States is involved in a vehicle accident every 10 seconds.
With such a high frequency and potential for life altering results, preparing for an vehicle accident is essential for every driver, bicyclist and pedestrian.
How does one prepare for an auto accident? Begin by taking a defensive driving course, learning about vehicle accident insurance and coverages, use your seat belt every time you get in your vehicle regardless of the distance you plan to travel, don’t text and drive, never drive drunk and always anticipate that the driver next to you, in front of you or behind you will be careless.
