Auto Accidents Happen When We Least Expect Them
Car accidents happen when we least expect them and they are often the result of someone else’s negligence. Car accidents involving negligence occur for a variety of reasons. The following are just a few examples:
- Drunk driving
- Falling asleep at the wheel (car, big rig or semi-truck drivers)
- Exceeding the lawful speed limit
- Red light running
- Disregarding traffic signs
- Driver inattention
- Unsafe lane change, unsafe passing or improper turn
Whatever the reason that an auto collision occurs, the results can be serious or even deadly. In a report prepared for the Arizona Department of Transportation, it stated that, “Driver error is estimated to cause about half of all traffic accidents in Arizona and the United States.” Car accident injuries can range from minor injuries to serious or catastrophic injuries, where the injuries not only alter the life of the victim, but the lives of everyone involved. Wrongful death cases are the saddest and most tragic; leaving the mourning family members wanting the most compensation available to them from the negligent driver who caused the loss of their loved one. In Arizona, 27.69% of all crash fatalities in 2008 were a result of driving too fast for conditions or exceeding the lawful speed. In total, 357 people were killed due to speeding in Arizona alone.
Often it is necessary to hire experts, such as accident reconstructionists or forensic engineers, who’s job is to show the insurance company, or jury, exactly how the accident occurred.
