Motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of death in California and the United States. Often, a driver’s negligent behavior contributes to crashes, and at other times, external influences beyond a person’s control also cause collisions. They are preventable if drivers prioritize safety, obey traffic rules and regulations, and adequately maintain their vehicles.
