Car accidents account for millions of injuries throughout the United States every year. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that over 5 million car accidents occur every year in the U.S., leaving millions injured and bearing the burden of financial costs that typically accompany these accidents. While many different actions of the behalf of other drivers or parties can cause serious car wrecks, there are certain types of accidents that are seen more often.
Top Causes of Car Accidents
Although any car accident can be devastating and cause serious harm to innocent motorists, there are certain actions that other parties commit which contribute more often to injury causing accidents. In general, the following types of accidents are among those that most often affect Americans:
- Drunk driving accidents
- Rollover accidents
- Accidents involving 18-wheelers
- Accidents caused by people running red lights
- Accidents caused by failing to merge properly
These accidents can be extremely dangerous and are, sadly, fairly common occurrences in the U.S. However, many victims of these types of accidents are able to obtain financial compensation from the other person or driver who was at fault.
