Motor Vehicle Accident

The Motor Vehicle Crash

BlueWreck.jpgNo matter what you call it, auto accident, car crash, motor vehicle crash, road traffic collision, traffic accident, or anything else, it usually involves a vehicle of some type, colliding with another vehicle or object. The resulting damage to person and property can be minor, or devastating. And, the severity of the property damage may have little to do with the severity of the injuries of those involved. To illustrate what we mean, please see the, "Motor Vehicle Crash, Myth vs. Fact", section of our website.


Here is some information to ponder regarding motor vehicle crashes in Texas, from calendar year 2009.
•    59,164 serious injury crashes
•    Vehicle miles traveled, over 230 billion
•    1685 deaths in rural areas
•    Single vehicle deaths, 1227
•    696 people killed in intersections or related to an intersection
•    505 people killed in head-on crashes
•    No deathless days in Texas
•    One person killed every two hours 50 min.
•    One person injured every 2 min. 14 seconds
•    One reportable crash every 74 seconds
•    235,280 persons injured
•    956 people killed were under the influence of alcohol

The variety of motor vehicle crashes, including the variables of driver position, driver health, seat belt use, airbag deployment, headrest position, speed or change in direction and many others, make every incident a unique occurrence. There is, therefore, no accurate way to equate the severity of any injuries sustained in a motor vehicle crash, to a specific variable, such as speed. For example, many insurance companies would have you believe that since there may be little to no damage to your vehicle, that you could not be injured. This is simply not true. Again, please see our, "Motor Vehicle Crash, Myth vs. Fact", section for some surprising facts.

Testimonial

  • "I have just recently moved to San Antonio and was in need of a Chiropractor. When I found Dr. Lewis, I found more than that. First, after many years of going to some very good chiropractors, I found the best one I have ever gone to regardless of location and I have lived in many states and cities; second, I have found someone that looks farther than just an adjustment and is concerned about my holistic wellness. Very few health care professionals provide the level of care that I receive when I see Dr. Lewis. She is helpful, caring, compassionate while being I true professional. I couldn't have be more blessed"

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
