Negligent driving is one of the most destructive activities on American roads. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, approximately 421,000 people suffered injuries in accidents with distracted drivers in 2012.
That number doesn’t even take into account other forms of negligent driving, including drowsy driving, drunk driving and speeding. Almost all personal-injury lawsuits that result from car accidents allege that another motorist’s negligent behavior caused the accident and, therefore, the injuries. However, other parties are sometimes included.
