There is a reason behind every car accident.
New York , New York (PRWEB) December 03, 2014
David Beckham and his teenage son Brooklyn escaped unhurt from a car crash that dented the side of his Audi RS6. Both car occupants were “badly shaken” but the car’s airbags saved them from serious injury, reported the United Kingdom newspaper, The Telegraph (11.29.14).
“Getting into an accident can be unsettling,” said Attorney at Law David Perecman. “They often occur when they are least expected.”
Beckham, 39, the former England captain, was picking up his eldest son when he was involved in the collision outside Arsenal’s training ground in Hertfordshire. Brooklyn, 15, had played for Arsenal under-16s in a match against Brighton.
Beckham was also involved in a car accident in October 2013 when he collided with another car while pulling out of his “hedge-lined driveway” in Beverly Hills. He was in his black Range Rover Sport with his son Brooklyn when the collision occurred, reported another U.K. newspaper, The Independent (10.27.13). David and Brooklyn Beckham were also involved in a car crash in 2011 while on the way to school. The Independent said the pair had “a lucky escape.”
According to Forbes(7.27.11), the average driver will file a claim for a collision about once every 17.9 years by car insurance industry estimates. Given this, a driver with a typical long, driving lifetime may have a total of three to four accidents.
Most accidents are not deadly. Each year, about 10 million accidents of all kinds occur, from fender benders to multiple vehicle collisions, according to the National Safety Council. Only three of every 1,000 of accidents in 2009 involved deaths, said Forbes. To lower the risk of being in a car accident, avoid driving impaired, pay attention to the road, do not speed, and avoid roadway congestion.
“There is a reason behind every accident,” said Perecman.
