There are many causes of car accidents on the streets today. Distracted driving, road rage, impaired driving and driving a vehicle that is not safe are among the top factors contributing to auto accidents. Drivers who cause accidents are many times the ones who are repeat offenders and don’t learn their lesson causing those around them to suffer for their poor choices.
Those suffering from injuries due to others lack of concern for their fellow drivers end up missing work, dealing with lingering pain, having to pay heavy medical bills, loosing sleep and dealing with the mental stress of having their lives in chaos.
