The statistics regarding auto accidents can be alarming. Every year there are thousands of auto accidents that seriously injure and kill individuals. While there are reports regarding auto accidents each day in the media, most drivers have become complacent assuming they won’t be involved in a crash. Unfortunately, statistics prove that a driver will be involved in more than one accident during their lifetime.
