Who is Liable in a Lakeland Auto Accident?
A Lakeland auto accident may be traced to someone’s negligent behavior. Two common causes of auto accidents are unsafe driving maneuvers and intoxicated motorists. According to the United States Department of Transportation (USDT), young drivers are more likely to engage in unsafe driving maneuvers that may cause car accidents. The USDT also states that intoxicated motorists make up a large portion of those who operate vehicles unsafely. As a result, more than a fourth of Americans have been involved in a car accident in the past five years.
Auto Accident Injuries
Minor collisions may cause catastrophic consequences, such as a brain or head injury or burn injury. No matter the cause of the auto accident injury, it may leave the victim with medical bills, pain and suffering, and/or lost wages.
