A car accident can be terrifying. Being in an accident can result in much more than a damaged vehicle; an individual can suffer traumatic physical and emotional injuries. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2012 nearly 2.4 million individuals were injured in a motor vehicle accident in the United States. Of that number, 104,000 individuals were injured in accidents involving large trucks. In fact, large trucks were involved in 333,000 of the overall number of traffic accidents in 2012 whether or not there was a reported injury.
According to an article in the Washington Post, in Maryland, 273 lives were claimed in single-car crashes in 2012. In the District, 157 people died in single-car crashes. Between 2011 and 2012, it was reported that 1,541 individuals lost their lives in single-car accidents in the District, Maryland and Virginia. The greater Washington metropolitan area and its residents and visitors are not immune to experiencing a tragic motor vehicle accident.
