A Driver Runs Into A Tree Off Off Deer Park Avenue Exist, The Passenger Succumbs To Fatal Injuries
There are several types of car accidents, and each type has its own set of common causes. However, there are generally some common causes that are shared among accident types.
More than 90% of all accidents usually involve driver error. This error could be anything from driving while distracted to driving under the influence. In order to receive compensation for injuries in an auto accident, the victim must usually prove that the at-fault driver was acting in a negligent manner.
One of the most common driver errors that leads to accidents across the country is speeding. Speeding not only increases the forces at play during an accident, making it more severe, but it can also lead to loss of control much easier than driving at a slower speed. Speeding can also reduce the effectiveness of other safety measures, such as airbags and seatbelts.
