There's no reason why you shouldn't be able to get from A to B without being involved in a serious auto collision -- that is, if everyone else on the road were attentive, defensive and law-abiding motorists. Unfortunately, no matter how safe and careful we are on the road, there will be an unlimited number of drivers who are not. This is why, if we hope to reduce our chances of injury in an auto accident, we need to take extra precaution, such as:

We like to think that who we are as people is something built into us on some fundamental level, but over the last several decades, advances in the understanding of the brain have shown that even minor brain damage can seriously affect how we act and what we think, often to an alarming degree. If you recently suffered a blow to the head, you may notice that you are not acting like your normal self, and if so, you may have a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Car accidents of all kinds are often much more damaging than the people in the car realize at the time. Even modest car accidents may result in injuries that a driver or passenger may not feel in the immediate aftermath of the accident, giving them the false impression that they survived the accident injury-free.
When you head out the door for work each morning you likely aren't thinking about suffering an injury. Safety needs to be on your mind at all times because accidents are lurking around every corner when on the job. Should you suffer an injury at work you need to report it as soon as possible to your employer so a personal injury claim can move forward in Illinois.
