Common Causes of Car Accidents 

Numerous reasons and factors cause car accidents, but overall, there are four major causes of car accidents across the United States. While Florida may rank higher in some common causes than other states, as a driver you should be mindful of all the most common ones. While someone may be preventable with knowledge and defensive driving, it is sometimes impossible to prevent accidents when other drivers are not as aware. 

Common Injuries from Car Accidents 

As with the most common causes of car accidents, there are also a huge variety of injuries sustained from car accidents. But three car accident injuries are the most common and can cause a lot of pain and suffering long term. 

No matter what type of injury you have—or even if you do not think you have an injury—it is vital that you seek medical attention immediately. While some injuries are more obvious, such as a broken bone, or a laceration, other injuries can show up slowly over days or weeks, and those injuries tend to be long-lasting and require long-term medical care. Without proper documentation and immediate medical attention, your insurance may not cover these injuries. 

How to Recover from Car Accident Injuries  

As mentioned, the first thing you need to do after a car accident is to seek medical attention. They will be able to help you with your immediate needs, whether it is medication, stitches, a cast, etc. But even if you feel okay after an accident, it is important to still properly “recover” from an accident, as symptoms may not present themselves immediately and could become worse over time. 

In addition to seeking medical attention, it is important to do these five things to help you recover after an accident:
