Car Accidents in Arizona
Vehicle accidents happen for many reasons. External influences, such as inclement weather, can create dangerous roadway conditions, causing a driver to lose control of their car. In many cases, a car crash is ultimately caused by the reckless or negligent actions of one or more drivers.
Taking into consideration modern technological advances such as onboard GPS systems and cell phones, there are multiple distractions causing drivers to pay less attention. When these distractions mingle with negligence and human error, Arizona’s overall number of car accidents and the number of injuries they cause both increase dramatically.
Distracted driving and other kinds of irresponsible behavior also cause drivers to violate fundamental driving laws and regulations, resulting in cars that run traffic lights, speed, and even crash into other vehicles or pedestrians.
