Liability For Hector Car Accidents
Speed remains one of the leading causes of car accidents in the United States. According to the NHTSA, “For more than two decades, speeding has been involved in approximately one-third of all motor vehicle fatalities. In 2021, speeding was a contributing factor in 29% of all traffic fatalities.” There are a number of other factors that could contribute to a collision.
- Car accidents are more likely to take place at intersections especially when drivers are making left turns.
- Car accidents are more likely to take place during periods of inclement weather.
- Car accidents are more likely to take place when drivers are fatigued.
All drivers have a legal obligation to exercise due care in order to avoid causing accidents. The family of any person that died in a car accident may be able to seek some measure of justice through a wrongful death claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover many of the expenses that come with a sudden death. It is essential that all evidence is properly preserved after any accident.
