Avoidable Car Crash Injuries | Car Tips
Although it is sometimes impossible to avoid a car collision, there are ways to ensure you stay as safe as possible behind the wheel. Below are some are injuries you can help avoid by being safer when driving and being aware of safer practices.
The easiest way to avoid injuries to the head and face is to make sure everyone in the vehicle is wearing a seatbelt. This will prevent you from going flying through a window or door during a crash and will greatly reduce the chance of death. You can also avoid a head injury by placing your arms over your head during impact.
Brain injuries can help to be prevented by airbags. If you own a used vehicle, make sure the airbag has not been deployed by a previous owner to make sure you are as safe as possible. Although some people believe airbags can cause serious injuries, a permanent brain injury is much more severe than a couple bruised ribs.
Finally, you can avoid leg and other lower body injuries by sitting properly in your vehicle. If you sit at an awkward angle you run the risk of injuring yourself.
