Every time you sit behind the wheel of a car you are exposed to a churning sea of fast-moving vehicles of various sizes and shapes, all racing to their destinations. Car and truck accidents are by far the most prevalent and most common cause of personal injury. You are at the mercy of the skill and focus of every single driver out there and with the myriad of distractions, like mobile phones, even a morning work commute becomes dangerous. In Illinois alone there are over 13 million registered vehicles. In Illinois during 2014 there were over 296,000 crashes, involving over 691,000 individuals, resulting in over 84,000 injuries. Not every car accident results in injury, however all it takes is one accident, one vehicle, or one distracted driver to change your life forever.
Car and truck accidents are by far the most prevalent and most common cause of personal injury. Injuries to the neck and back are most common in rear end auto accidents, ranging from sprains of the ligaments and muscles to more serious injuries such as disc herniations. Serious car accidents often result in broken bones, concussions, spinal injuries, paralysis, or even loss of life.
