Media post: Top 5 Safest Cars on the Road Today

According to the NHTSA, road accidents resulted in the death of 42,915 people on American roads, and millions of others were left with injuries.

While human error is the primary cause of accidents, the type of car can also influence the severity of an accident. Therefore, you may need to consider car safety when choosing a car for you or your family.

This guide highlights five of the safest cars on the roads today.

You Could Still Get Into an Accident

Buying a safe car can help improve your chances of survival if you get into an accident. But even the safest car cannot eliminate the chances of getting into an accident because you cannot control other people’s actions on the road.

However, you can hold them answerable for their actions by filing an injury claim or lawsuit against them. The first thing after an auto accident should be getting medical help.

After medical help, the next thing should be looking for the most successful attorney to represent you in your auto accident claim. A lawyer’s help in an injury claim can significantly increase the chances of recovering fair compensation for your damages.
