Many people in the U.S. are losing their lives on the highway. The fatalities have increased, but the main causes of death are the same ones we’re warned about. Drunk driving, speeding, and not wearing seatbelts all contributed to the increased highway fatalities in 2016.
Other people who share the road with cars also lost their lives at a higher rate. Motorcyclist, bicyclist, and pedestrian deaths have increased more than a third since 2008.
Car accidents can be fatal or cause injuries that change your life forever. It’s frustrating when this happens because of another person’s reckless driving behavior. Your injuries could keep you from working or require weeks to recover. It’s important to remember that you don’t have to go through this alone.
