A serious traffic accident takes place in just a matter of seconds. In most cases, there is little to no warning before the crash happens. Most collisions occur because of some form of carelessness or reckless driving on behalf of one or more of the involved parties. Sadly, these incidents can affect innocent victims who were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.
