Passengers at risk in New York auto accidents. Are you safe?

What is the safest place to ride in a car? Is the driver more likely to survive a car crash? Or are you safer riding in a vehicle as a passenger? Depends on where you are in a car.

If you’re riding in the back seat, you’re much safer than the passenger riding in the front seat. But if you’re riding in the front passenger seat, the driver has a much better chance of surviving a car crash than you.

But sometimes, no matter where you are in the car, you can sustain an injury. That’s what happened recently when a car and a tractor trailer collided on Interstate 90 near Buffalo. Several passengers and the driver in the car all sustained injuries and had to be taken to the hospital.

Every 13 seconds in America, someone sustains an injury in a car accident. That’s more than 2.3 million people injured in auto accidents every year, according to the latest government statistics from 2008. Around the world, 1 in 10 hospital beds are occupied by victims of auto accidents.

Car accidents cause a wide range of injuries. The most common injuries in car accidents are to people’s head, neck or back. And even though you might not feel injured immediately after an accident, serious injuries can develop days or even weeks later. That’s why it’s crucial you seek immediate medical attention after being involved in a car accident.

What would you do if you were injured in a car accident? Do you have an action plan? How will you pay your bills? Who’s responsible? Your insurance company? The driver’s insurance company?
