What Are the Main Causes of Car Accidents?

Car accidents can be caused by a number of different factors. Often, these are factors beyond our control, such as the carelessness of another driver or someone else responsible for your safety. 

When someone else’s negligence causes your car accident, it can be devastating. Between medical bills, lost income, and emotional trauma, it can seem like a long walk to recovery. 

Fortunately, with the help of a Savannah car accident lawyer, you can file a claim against the at-fault party in order to recover compensation in the form of an insurance settlement. Read on to learn more about the main causes of car accidents and how competent legal guidance can help.
