A motor vehicle accident is defined as the unintended collision of one motor vehicle with another, a stationary object, or person which result in injury or death and may or may not result in the loss of property. MVAs kill up to 45,000 per year in the U.S, according to web based statistics, and approximately 60% of those involved in accidents are over the age 35. These accidents require 500,000 hospitalizations and account for 20,000 of the spinal injuries. Road traffic accidents cost over $75 billion/year in injuries and damages.
Motor vehicle accidents can involve car, trucks, motorcycles, delivery vehicles, passenger vans, and 18-wheelers. Lots of factors contribute to traffic accidents. Vehicle design, speed of operation, road design, driver distraction, and driver impairment (drunk driving) can make a difference.
