Negligent driving is the most common cause of the thousands of auto accidents that occur every year in the United States. Driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol, distracted driving, speeding, and aggressive driving cause numerous car accidents that often result in serious injuries, property damages, and death. Traffic laws have been established and enforced to protect motorists. A driver that causes a car accident due to their reckless or negligent actions will likely face criminal consequences, but should also be held accountable for the damages they cause.
