Auto accidents can occur in various forms and by numerous factors. Thousands of auto accidents occur each year resulting in severe damage, serious injuries, and fatalities. One common factor between all types of auto accidents is that a large portion are caused by negligence. Truck accidents, motorcycle crashes, single vehicle accidents, and SUV rollovers are typically preventable due to the negligence of another party. Design flaws, dangerous roadways, mechanical defects, and negligent driving are all causes of preventable auto accidents. Individuals that sustain injuries, property damage, emotional damages, and lost wages may be entitled to compensation for their damages.
