There are many factors considered when studying an auto collision; such as speeding, driver fatigue, weather conditions, driver distraction and intoxication caused by drugs or alcohol, just to name a few. In recent years, text messaging and the use of cell phones while driving have greatly increased the danger on our roads and highways. Numerous contributing factors can make an automobile injury claim complicated.
Here are some basic facts. In the United States, alcohol is involved in approximately 40% of fatal auto accidents and 10% of all auto accidents. The loss of lives caused in part by people driving drunk is stunning. Over 17,000 lives are lost each year in the United States due to alcohol-related auto accidents. That translates to an average of one alcohol-related fatality every 32 minutes. Speeding alone is a contributing factor in 29% of all fatal crashes. Excessive speed is the second most common cause of deadly auto accidents, which accounts for 30% of all fatal accidents. Car accidents are the leading cause of death for kids between 2 and 14.
