Ways to Avoid Getting into an Accident: Tip #3-Leave at Least Three Car Lengths Between You and the Vehicle Ahead of You

It is vital to keep a three car distance between you and the vehicle driving in front of you, because if the other vehicle suddenly brakes for whatever reason, you will have enough time to react by either moving out of the way or braking fast enough to slow your car down, preventing a collision with the other vehicle's rear. There is also the possibility that your vehicle has a malfunction and for some reason you cannot slow it down fast enough or you accidentally accelerate by pressing on the gas pedal. Then if you have a three car distance, you would have enough time to correct your error. Furthermore, a truck driver following this advice will avoid getting into a tragic accident, because a truck takes more time to slow down compared to most other vehicles, especially a big rig, so keeping at least a three car gap is essential to prevent serious injuries from truck accidents or any other motor vehicle accident.

Agoura Hills Truck Accident Injury Information

A serious and common injury that victims of truck accidents suffer is a broken shoulder or fractured humerus. A broken shoulder is a very delicate injury that requires the immobilization of the arm with a support cuff at the wrist that is attached by a sling. There is a high amount of pain during the first two weeks of a broken shoulder that requires pain medication. More serious broken shoulders require surgery to stabilize the fracture.

We had two prior attorneys who were unable to settle our car accident case. We then hired Gary and Robert Walch and they not only got us both great settlements, but personally spent time with us explaining everything clearly. We couldn't be happier. Thank you!
