Nothing major. A few scrapes, but I've never been injured.

A few minor ones (never when I was driving).  No injuries - not even in the old days with no seat belts or airbags.

Yes I have. The stupid teenage driver thought it would be cool to drift an SUV in the dirt with bald tires. We flipped two times and the sunroof was open! I was lucky to leave with only abrasions and a few bruises.

A few minor ones but no serious car accidents. Everyone I've been in there was no need to even go see a Dr.

A few but nothing too serious beyond a few bruises.  DD was in one that totalled her car but luckily she was ok.  They ran the red light as she pulled out to turn left and clipped between the wheel and the driver side door.  She was VERY lucky because she was in a 2013 fusion and got hit by a jcaked up F250.

Yes, 4 years ago. It was 100% the other driver's fault and my car was totaled. No injuries...just bruises on my stomach from the seatbelt and I was sore for a few days. The accident actually worked in my favor...insurance gave me a lot more for my car than I expected & I was able to buy a much nicer car with cash and no car payment.

Yes. I was t-boned on the driver's side by a guy making a left. My car was wedged between his car and a lamp post. I had to squeeze out of the driver's side window to get out. Miraculously, I only had chest trauma and burns on my face and hands from the powder in the airbags.

Not me, my ex on the other hand was in a bad one. They thought he was dead when they first found him. Severe burns, head injury, collapsed lung, knee injury, ankle injury, hand injury, TBI.

yes, several

no, thankfully

my sister was in one that caused her lifelong problems until the day she died. she didn't died because of injuries from the accident but after years of surgeries her poor body just couldn't fight any longer when she got sick. at least that's what i believe.
