About 90 percent of car accidents result from driving errors, which demonstrates that many accidents could be prevented. Crashes caused by contributing factors such as distracted driving, speeding, reckless driving, and drowsy driving may cause motorists and passengers to incur a range of injuries as well as potential fatalities. Even one serious car accident like the Seneca car accident could adversely impact a victim’s life and cause life-long physical trauma, emotional distress, and financial difficulties.
