If you’re like most of us, if you see a car stopped on the side of the road with a bit of body damage, you’re likely to say that you passed a “car accident” on the way to work this morning. However, did you know that many are advocating for the use of “car crash” instead?
Many activists are asking legislators to make the switch since the word “accident,” they say, implies that the crash was not preventable even though car crashes are often caused by human error. In other words, advocates believe that many are being misled to believe that car crashes are not preventable because of the use of “accident.”
Visit the movement’s website to learn more about why saying “crash” may be a better idea.
If you’ve been hurt in a car crash, seeking the help of a qualified personal injury attorney is recommended.
