PEOPLE, PLACES, AND EVENTS THAT MAKE OHHS
“What happens next?” An automotive car collision could occur within the blink of an eye. Sudden and misfortunate, but not at all uncommon. According to statistics provided by lawcore.com, there are more than 6 million car accidents on the streets and roadways of the United States alone, 3 million of which, result in injuries. Damages can range from small dings and scratches of the automobile to broken bones and shattered spirits. Life will throw a curveball at you every now and then, even if you don’t have a bat. From the high insurance bills to the daunting medical annoyances that come along with it, a car
collision is no joke. Dealing with this situation swiftly and effectively can save you time, money, and energy.

Sometimes, the cheapest way isn’t always the best way, especially when it comes to car insurance. The national average rate for auto insurance is right around the ballpark of $1,657 per
year. It’s important to buy full coverage because if you get in an accident, and you only have liability, the damage done to your car won’t be covered. In my case, the guy that rear-ended my vehicle didn’t have insurance. He was allegedly drunk, therefore, my particular insurance plan was not able to cover the majority of my damages. What I thought was a savings in policy, cost me in the long run. Sit down with your parents or agent and make sure you know what coverage you have, or don;’t have...
