These 3 tips could help you escape a wrongful death

A wrongful death is a shock; One minute, a person might be fine, healthy and living well, and the next, they've passed away as a result of an unexpected injury. Wrongful deaths are often caused by car accidents. The force involved in a car accident is enough to maim and cause death in some instances.

People are at serious risk of death if they're struck at high speeds, when they're hit on motorcycles or when they're hit as pedestrians. While there is no way to predict that a serious collision may occur, there are some things you can do to improve your odds of escaping death. Here are a few things to consider.

1. Seat belts save lives

Seat belts restrain you in a motor vehicle accident. You'll be held closer to the seat, and the vehicle will take more of the force. The seat belt spreads any remaining force across your body along the most sturdy areas, like your pelvis and shoulders. Wear your seat belt to avoid being ejected from the vehicle.

2. Be vigilant as a pedestrian

Another thing to remember is that drivers aren't always considerate of pedestrians. If you're walking, always look both ways, even if you have a "WALK" signal.

3. Don't be afraid to slow down

On bikes and motorcycles, you should know that drivers are less likely to see you and may pull out in front of you. Don't be afraid to drive slower, to make eye contact with drivers and to make noise to stand out. These actions could save your life.

These are three tips that could help you avoid deadly car crashes. If a loved one suffers a fatal injury in a wreck, remember that a claim can be made to help those who remain.
