Auto Accident Causes
You didn’t plan on getting in an auto accident, but it happened.
In 2008, there were an estimated 10,111,000 vehicles involved in police-reported traffic crashes, in which 37,423 people were killed and 2.35 million people were injured. Car accidents are usually caused by the negligence of one or more drivers, however other factors such as poorly maintained roads and malfunctioning traffic control signals can contribute to the cause. Improper design, maintenance, construction, signage, lighting or other highway defect, as well as improper striping on the road’s passing lanes, a sharp obstruction or problem with the roadway that obstructs drivers’ vision, or poorly placed trees and utility poles can also cause serious accidents. In other cases, such as the Toyota recall litigation, vehicles and/or their component parts may be defectively designed or manufactured, causing serious injury.
