There are numerous causes of auto accidents, but one of the most common causes is that of negligent driving. It is common knowledge that all drivers must take courses and tests prior to obtaining a driver’s license. During those courses, individuals are educated on how to properly operate a vehicle, traffic laws, and risks of reckless driving. However, thousands of auto accidents continue to occur each year and drivers are often to blame. Distracted driving, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, speeding and aggressive driving are all examples of negligent driving. If you have been involved in a car accident due to a reckless driver, you may have grounds to compensation.
