Imagine spending the weekend in New Orleans and taking in all the Mardi Gras festivities. There are parties and parades throughout the city attended by people from all over the U.S. As you stand on the sidewalk, watching a parade, a car suddenly careens into the crowd. This is exactly what happened on February 25 in the Mid-City neighborhood of New Orleans.
Losing a loved one in a car accident is a terrible tragedy. Losing a child is even worse. Driving is very dangerous, even in perfect conditions. No matter how many safety precautions you take, or how much time you spent teaching your teen to drive, it is impossible to prepare fully for the mistakes other drivers make.
As you drove home from work yesterday, you were involved in a car accident. You were rear-ended by a driver that failed to stop with the rest of the traffic. Fortunately, you avoided broken bones, but now - the day after - you are experiencing severe neck and back pain.
