On Tuesday afternoon, Marylanders witnessed a startling example of how suddenly car accidents can upend our lives. If you were one of the many drivers westward on the Bay Bridge between 3 and 6 PM, you would have noticed that all lanes were closed. This was in response to a multi-vehicle crash that hospitalized several people. The severity of their injuries and the precise cause of the accident remain unclear at this time.
The Hazards of Car Accidents
In our automobile-centric society, serious car accidents threaten to impact our lives every day. Did you know that car crashes are the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 55? Beyond a doubt, driving is among the most dangerous activities that Americans engage in regularly. An abundance of caution is paramount for Maryland drivers to stay safe on the roads.
All too often, car accidents result from the negligence of another driver. The great tragedy is that it only takes one negligent individual to cause an accident. No matter how careful of a driver you are, there is no escaping the threat of becoming the victim of a crash.
Car accidents are responsible for countless hospitalizations and catastrophic injuries every day. These include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Internal bleeding
Many of these injuries have long-lasting effects on the victims. They can permanently impact one’s ability to lead a fulfilling career or a happy life. Then there is the financial burden placed on the victims by medical costs and continued therapy. Ultimately, you cannot calculate the cost of serious car accidents, such as the one that occurred Tuesday on the Bay Bridge.
