Most people don’t expect to be involved in a car accident on any given day, especially in a small community like Georgetown where traffic is usually mild. However, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that well over two million people are hurt during car accidents in the United States every year. In California, the Department of Transportation reports that nearly 200,000 people are injured in car accidents annually. Auto accidents involve a lot of force and often happen at high speeds. Because of these factors, crashes are capable of leaving people with major injuries. Some of the most common serious injuries that car crash survivors suffer are detailed below.
