Car Accidents in Arizona
Car accidents happen for many reasons. External conditions, like inclement weather, can cause hazardous road conditions and potentially cause a driver to lose control of their automobile. In the majority of cases, however, a car accident is the result of the negligent or reckless actions of another driver.
Taking into account modern technological advancements such as GPS and cell phones, drivers are more distracted than ever and simply not paying attention to their surroundings. Combined with human error, these distractions and other forms of negligence, have caused an upsurge in car accidents and the fatalities and injuries they produce.
Driving any kind of automobile is a privilege afforded to those who obey traffic laws and follow the rules of the road. Sadly, many drivers take this privilege for granted and disregard the duty of care they owe to others. When drivers take their obligation to drive safely too lightly, they become a serious threat to everyone around them.
