Common Causes of Car Accidents
There were 5.3 million automobile accidents in the United States in 2011, resulting in nearly 3 million injuries and 33,000 deaths. Every one of those wrecks was unique. They involved different people, different circumstances and different outcomes. Most of them are caused by human error. In fact, about 94% of all road accidents are caused by human error.
But most of them shared something in common: They were caused by some sort of driver error, such as speeding, texting while driving or running a red light.
