You must be able to demonstrate the negligent action that led to the accident. Some factors commonly contributing to fatal collisions include:
- Speeding: Traveling at too high of a speed increases the likelihood of a driver losing control of their vehicle and going off the roadway. Speeding also increases the severity of injuries that are suffered in crashes due to the impact.
- Distracted Driving: When drivers are distracted by their cell phones, navigation systems, or even students on board, they are likely to miss seeing street signs or other vehicles nearby. This increases the chances of accidents taking place.
- Driver Fatigue: When drivers are too tired to operate their vehicles, they run the risk of losing control and crashing into others.
