Picture yourself driving on a highway. The wind is blowing through your hair and your favorite song is playing. Suddenly, the car in the lane next to you doesn’t look in their blind spot and tries to switch lanes. You beep your horn and slow down to try and avoid the collision. Luckily, the other car heard you and got back into their lane, and you continue driving safely. Unfortunately, not every scenario turns out like this one.
As of 2017, the Kentucky State Police reported 556 highway fatalities. Car accidents are all too common and can cause heavy emotional and physical trauma. You might feel confused or lost in the aftermath of a car crash, wondering how and why this happened. What you’re feeling is completely normal and understandable.
