Nobody expects to get into a motor vehicle accident, but unfortunately, such accidents continue to occur by the thousands all across the country, day after day. By far the most common type of motor vehicle accident is a car accident because the vast majority of vehicles on the road are passenger cars. Motorcycles and large trucks make up a portion of the road's inhabitants, but in all likelihood, if you are injured in an accident, there will be a car involved.
Car accidents are not always the most catastrophic occurrences imaginable. In fact, many accidents leave simple dents in a car or minor paint damage, with no significant injuries incurred by either driver. In these instances, drivers usually exchange insurance, and the insurance companies handle the matter between themselves, with a bit of assistance from the police if an officer was called to the scene. Unfortunately, accidents that result in severe injuries may not always be so simple.
