A car accident is a collision involving an automobile and anything that causes damage to the automobile, including other automobiles, telephone poles, buildings, and trees. Sometimes a car accident may also refer to an automobile striking a human or animal. Car accidents — also called traffic collisions, auto accidents, road accidents, personal injury collisions, motor vehicle accidents and crashes — kill an estimated 1.2 million people worldwide each year, and injure about forty times this number.
A personal injury sustained in a vehicle accident might become a formal civil court case/proceeding or may be solved through an informal settlement prior to a lawsuit being filed. Auto accidents include:
