Auto accidents in major cities usually include rear end and T-bone type crashes. With stop and go traffic and numerous traffic lights, drivers often stop suddenly, which can lead to an accident. In addition, many drivers run red lights and speed through intersections, which puts cars travelling in the opposite direction at risk of being hit from the side. These types of collisions often result in serious injuries. It is always most important to seek medical attention as soon as possible so that a doctor can evaluate your injuries and recommend a treatment process.
