Multi-Vehicle Accidents In Rockford
Every year more than 6 million accidents take place in the country and the majority, more than half will result in injuries. Most of those injuries are debilitating to the victims. In almost 95% of all accidents in the country, driver error from distracted driving, to intoxication is the cause for crashes. The single-most proactive thing any driver or passenger can do to preserve their safety is to wear a seatbelt. Seat belt use reduces the risk of ejection from a vehicle by 30 times and reduces the risk of death by 45%.
