Motor Vehicle Accidents are the leading cause of personal injury lawsuits in America. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA), someone in the United States is involved in a car accident every ten seconds. In 2003, there were 1120 people that died in a car accident in Arizona. Car accidents cost Arizona 4.272 billion dollars in 2000. Alcohol was involved in more than 3 out of 10 vehicular deaths in Arizona. Also, speed was a factor in 39% of these deaths, costing the state 772 million dollars in 2000.
In most cases, auto accidents are caused by one or more negligent drivers who failed to adhere to the laws of the road. It is the responsibility of any driver to operate a vehicle in a safe manner, and not adhering to road signs or disregarding fellow road users, can have a diverse impact.
