Common reasons for highway fatalities

Even safe drivers in Arizona can face hazards from road conditions, the weather and other drivers. Driver error and behavior contribute to many highway accidents and fatalities, and this includes drunk driving and distracted driving as well as failing to make use of vehicle safety features. But poor road design and natural occurrences like rain and snow also make road travel more dangerous and can cause fatalities.

Ford recalls 1.4 million cars over steering wheel defect

Arizona car owners should be aware that Ford has announced a recall of nearly 1.4 million sedans in the United States, Canada and Mexico due to a safety issue with the steering wheel. A defect could cause the steering wheel to come off while the car is in motion, making the driver lose control of the vehicle.

The most common car accident injuries

Car accidents happen every day across Arizona, and the injuries that result from them vary. Factors like speed and the location of impact are important. For instance, a car going 15 mph that rear-ends a stationary car may lead to minor injuries and scratches in occupants of both vehicles. The injuries will most likely not be long-term. If the car were going 40 mph, however, there could be a fatality, especially if the car collides on an occupant's side.

What to know about soft tissue injuries

While hard tissue injuries affect the bone and cartilage, soft tissue injuries affect the muscles, tendons and ligaments. They are often linked with car accidents because the impact combined with sudden braking leads to the stretching of the tissues and, consequently, tears, sprains, soreness and strain. Drivers in Arizona will want to know more in case they find themselves filing a personal injury claim.
