Car accidents of all shapes and size occur everyday in the United States. Many of these wrecks are minor in nature. The bumpers of two vehicles meet at a low speed, and the passengers and drivers inside are not injured. Minor damage to the vehicles occurs, and insurance companies get involved. Little else comes of the collision, even though it is a hassle to deal with.
But many other accidents are extremely serious in nature. The collision happens at a high rate of speed, or the vehicles tumble over and over. Extensive damage is dealt to the vehicles, and they may be completed destroyed. The people inside could suffer serious, catastrophic, or fatal injuries as a result. And the police get involved, combing the accident scene for evidence and eventually finding out who was at fault for the terrible incident.
