Car accidents cause thousands of injuries and deaths every year, and traffic accidents are the predominant cause of preventable death in the United States.
Some of the most common factors that lead to car accidents include failing to adhere to speed limits and the use of mobile phones. Distractions of any kind such as smoking, drinking, eating, and listening to loud music also increase risk.
Additional hazards that lead to more accidents include drinking and driving and rubbernecking at the sites of accidents. Defective cars and roadways also play a role.
If you are injured in an automobile accident, it is important to seek the help of a personal injury attorney immediately who can help you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
