Liability For White Creek Car Accidents
Car accidents are one of the leading causes of serious injury and death in the United States. According to the Centers For Disease Control, “Reducing motor vehicle crash deaths was one of the great public health achievements of the 20th century for the US. However, more than 32,000 people are killed and 2 million are injured each year from motor vehicle crashes.” Larger vehicles can be particularly dangerous for a number of reasons.
- They have a high center of gravity and are more prone to tipping over.
- Larger vehicles weigh more and are more prone to breaking down if not properly maintained.
- Larger vehicles have large blind spots that can obscure the presence of smaller vehicles.
