Thousands of car accidents occur due to the recklessness and negligence of drivers. Typically, the negligence is unintentional; however, there are instances where a driver makes the decision to operate a vehicle recklessly. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, aggressive driving and speeding, and driving without the proper licenses are all examples of negligent driving that leads to accidents. Individuals injured and killed in auto accidents will likely incur medical expenses, funeral costs, lost wages, and mental anguish. You might be entitled to compensation for those damages if negligence caused the crash.
