Car accidents are so frequent and unpredictable; therefore, it’s impossible to be completely prepared for one. Car accidents affect thousands of lives per year, causing severe injuries, fatal injuries, and/or property damage. The most common cause for car accidents is negligent driving, which entails utilizing a cell phone, speeding, driving under the influence, paying attention to something other than the road, and falling asleep at the wheel. Negligence frequently results to drivers receiving a personal injury. Because Otterbine is suffering multiple injuries, it’s possible a personal injury lawsuit will be filed.
