Causes of Car Accidents
Who causes motor vehicle collisions?
Statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) tell us that approximately 1.2 million people die per year due to motor vehicle accidents. The main reason for fatalities of individuals aged 3 to 33, according to the NHTSA, is car accidents. It is of note that even with these statistics and the nearly daily news of collisions involving drunk or distracted drivers, 5 of the 6 top causes of vehicular accidents involve the motorists themselves.
Distracted driving, driver fatigue, operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, speeding and aggressive driving as well as the weather, makes up the top six causes of automobile fatalities. Beyond the accident itself, an individual involved in a collision frequently has many barriers to full physical and mental recovery. An accident victim can be faced with ambulance and emergency medical costs. Waiting right around the corner are vehicle replacement, additional medical attention and rehabilitation and an inability, whether temporary or permanent, to earn wages. This is where an aggressive and knowledgeable Sugar Land personal injury attorney may be of great help to you and your family.
