Lawmakers have created specific rules and regulations pertaining to the requirements of obtaining a driver's license. All individuals receive an education regarding traffic laws and the importance of operating a vehicle responsibly. While there are some incidents that involve drivers utilizing their vehicles as a weapon, most auto accidents do not occur intentionally. Reckless and negligent driving, mechanical defects, vehicle design flaws, and dangerous roadways are some of the most common causes of accidents. All car accidents can be traumatic for the victims regardless of the severity of the crash. Mental anguish is just one example of the damages individuals suffer as a result of an auto accident. Other damages can be in the form of property damage, injuries, or death.
