Most Common Car-Related Injuries
Californians pay a far bigger insurance penalty than drivers in most other states for causing a traffic accident. Thats the finding of InsuranceQuotes.com, an insurance shopping company that surveyed how much a drivers premiums rise after one accident. Car insurance premiums for Californian rise by an average of 62% after a single claim, according to the report. Thats the second-steepest hike in the country. Nationally, drivers pay an average of 38% more for car insurance after making a single claim. Residents of Massachusetts pay the largest increase, 67%. New Jersey is third after California with a 59% rise. Maryland has the smallest increase, just 20%, followed by Alabama at 22% and Michigan at 23%. Dont even think about having a second accident thats your fault. Nationally, that sends premiums soaring to 86% over a claim-free driver with a similar policy. The biggest lesson for consumers is not to file a claim unless absolutely necessary, said Laura Adams, an analyst at InsuranceQuotes.com.

Its something that can be a dangerous situation, Salmon says. The best thing to do is try to get out on your own first by using those techniques and trying by rocking your car back and forth gently. Its so easy for someone to slip on the ice and fall down and get run over. Pedestrian Safety Like injuries from pushing cars, many accidents cited in the report did not happen to the person driving the vehicle. One-third of the nontraffic crash injuries involved pedestrians and cyclists. Accidentally backing over someone accounted for 14% of injuries; children, difficult to see in blind spots, are often the victims. Nearly 50% of children injured in back-over incidents are between the ages of 1 and 4, according to research from Doernbecher Childrens Hospital in Portland, Ore. Forty-seven percent of those accidents happen at home, while another 40% happen in driveways or parking lots.
