Many victims sustain injuries that alter their lives entirely. Accidents can happen for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common causes of accidents we see in our state include negligent drivers, speeding drivers, reckless driving behaviors, drivers who are impaired, and those who are distracted while operating their vehicles.
