What are the leading causes of car accidents?
Almost all car accidents are preventable, because they are often caused by the negligence or recklessness of motorists who are not attending to their driving responsibilities. Every driver has an obligation to respect the safety of other motorists and if they do not act accordingly, serious accidents are likely to occur. Some of the most common causes of car accidents in the United States include drunk driving, driving while distracted (such as by texting or talking on a cell phone), excessive speed, and disregard for posted traffic signs.
If you have been hurt in a crash caused by a driver who was engaged in any of the above at the time of the collision, you may be able to seek financial compensation through a civil lawsuit.
