Dangerous driving can lead to death on the road

For drivers in New York, getting behind the wheel can sometimes have unexpected consequences, especially as a result of a car accident. Auto collisions can lead to serious personal injuries and even fatalities on the roadways, and working to reduce the dangers on highways is a major priority for public officials. There are several leading causes of car crashes that play a role in severe accidents that lead to death or major injuries.

Unsafe driving is one major factor in car accident injuries For example, drunk and impaired driving leads to a large number of fatalities each year. When drivers are intoxicated, their reaction times are slowed, and they may be unable to handle the split-second changes needed when driving on the highway. While drunk driving is particularly dangerous, even drowsy driving can pose a threat to others on the roads. Sleepy drivers can doze off and lose control by crashing into other cars or slipping into another lane of traffic.

Distracted driving can be another major factor in severe car accidents. While many types of distractions can take a driver's eyes and mind from the road, including eating or applying makeup, one of the most infamous reasons for distraction behind the wheel is texting or browsing the web while driving.

There are a number of other factors that can play a major role in dangerous or deadly car accidents, including poor road design and bad weather, but far too many crashes are caused by negligent or dangerous driving. People who have been injured in a car accident may wish to consult with a personal injury lawyer in order to seek compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering and other expenses from those responsible.
