Car safety features that reduce injury and the chance of death

No matter what type of car you drive, it's important to understand its safety features. The same holds true if you are in the market for a car, as you want to purchase one that will keep you as safe as possible in the event of an accident.

Here are several car safety features that reduce injury and the chance of death in an accident:

-- Adjustable head restraints. Whiplash is a common injury in a motor vehicle accident, especially when a vehicle is struck from behind. A properly adjusted head restraint can help reduce the risk of this injury.

-- Airbags. Fortunately, all modern vehicles are equipped with airbags. These have been proven effective, time and time again.

-- Crumple zones. This isn't something you often think about, but it could help prevent serious injury in an accident. With this, your car is better positioned to absorb energy, thus helping you avoid injury or death.

It's a good idea to learn as much as you can about the safety features of your vehicle. If for any reason you believe that one of these features is not working as it should, don't hesitate to visit a local mechanic.

You never know if you will be involved in a car accident, so it's nice to know that your vehicle is always prepared to protect you should this happen.

Even with these safety features in place, you could still be injured in an accident. Don't wait to receive medical treatment following an accident, as this can help you learn more about your injuries and what to expect in terms of treatment.
