How do car accidents happen?
Car accidents occur for a variety of reasons, though typically, they’re a result of driver negligence. Motorists face a wide variety of distractions at all times, such as cellular devices in their possession. Additionally, drivers are frequently guilty of speeding, operating their vehicles while drowsy or intoxicated, and otherwise ignoring the rules and regulations of the road. All of these things frequently lead to serious accidents, injuries, and, in the worst cases, fatalities.
