The report also listed the 15 cities that were the safest for drivers. Brownsville, Texas, was considered the safest city as the average motorist there could expect to go almost 15 years before getting into a collision. Laredo and McAllen were other cities in Texas that made the safe driving list. Some relatively major cities to make the list included Boise, Scottsdale and Kansas City.
Someone who has been hurt in a car crash may try to obtain compensation for medical expenses and other damages. This assumes that another person or entity is liable for the accident that caused the victim to incur those damages. An attorney could use witness statements, photos or a police report to establish that another party was responsible for the accident. While an attorney may file a lawsuit, cases can be resolved through a settlement.
