Auto accidents are one of the leading causes of death in the United States, and unfortunately, most of these accidents are preventable. Dangerous roadways, negligent and reckless driving, mechanical defects, and vehicle design flaws are the most common causes of auto accidents. Individuals injured in car accidents will likely incur damages in the form of physical damages, property damages, and financial damages.
