Did you know that you are likely to be involved in not only one but two auto accidents at some point during your lifetime? The regular occurrence of auto accidents increases the chances for even the safest driver to be involved in a crash. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, speeding, distracted driving, and fatigued driving are examples of reckless driving that can lead to a traffic accident. However, reckless driving is only one of the causes of the thousands of preventable auto accidents that occur annually. Dangerous roadways, mechanical defects, and vehicle design flaws are also responsible for a fair share of car accidents.
