Carelessness by a pilot caused the wrongful death of two men in a single-engine plane accident near the Bahamas on March 24, 2008.
Negligence causes accidents in the air, on the water or on the road. Car accidents caused by negligence can lead to personal injury and wrongful death.
As car accident attorneys, we know there are many types of negligence that can lead to car accidents. Car accidents can cause personal injuries to the spinal cord, as well as traumatic brain injury such as concussions (or a subdural hematoma/bleeding on the brain).
Negligence can happen on the assembly line. A design defect can lead to a car accident that causes personal injury or wrongful death. Negligence can also happen before the car key is turned. A driver who gets behind the wheel under the influence of alcohol or drugs can cause a car accident from driver distraction. Alcohol severely hinders a person’s ability to drive making a wrongful death car accident more likely, even though there are numerous ways to prevent drunk-driving from happening.
Disobeying the rules of the road (i.e. running a red light or speeding) can cause car accidents because rules of the road exist to keep all drivers safe on streets and highways.
Irresponsibility can happen before a car is built, before the key is turned or even on the road. Drivers should always take special attention and remain focused when driving to prevent car accidents.
As car accident lawyers, we know the unpredictability of the safety components while driving a car. No car is perfect. Sometimes, car accidents happen, but responsible production and responsible driving can prevent car accidents that lead to personal injury and wrongful death.
