Auto Accidents are responsible for over 3 million injuries a year. Many of these injuries cause permanent complications and even death. The unfortunate reality is that many of these car accidents could have been avoided had drivers not acted negligently while driving an automobile. Driver negligence is the number one cause of serious and fatal auto accidents. This can have serious effects on victims, leaving them seriously injured and financially devastated.
Many major car accidents can be traced back to deliberate acts of driver negligence, including:
• Driving while talking on a phone, texting, or otherwise distracted
• Speeding and other forms of reckless driving
• Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
However, drivers may not be the only cause in serious car crashes. Automobile manufacturers and mechanics may also share responsibility through errors such as:
• Unsafe vehicle designs
• Poorly designed or manufactured car parts
• Inadequate repairs on automobiles
Oversights like these can even cause responsible drivers to lose control of their vehicles, potentially ending in terrible car wrecks.
