Car Accident Personal Injury

What Hazards Does Traffic Pose?

Submitted by jrlaw on Jul 30th, 2010

Car accident personal injury attorneys frequently run into very similar cases. This is simply because some driving conditions, and some types of drivers, are inherently more dangerous than others. Accidents tend to occur under similar conditions, as these conditions make it difficult for drivers to see or, in the case of heavy traffic, because the stress that they cause leads to poor judgment and impatience. If you want to play it safe, there are certain types of conditions and drivers that you can try to avoid.

The majority of fatal car crashes involve drivers between the ages of 18-28. This is not because these drivers are inherently bad. In fact, those are the ages when your reflexes are the best they’ll ever be. However, it’s also the age range where people tend to do the most driving and when they’re most likely to make bad decisions. Experience counts for a lot where driving is concerned and, quite simply, these drivers don’t have enough of it to know what to do in bad situations. Oftentimes, a car wreck attorney will find themselves representing someone who has been hurt, or killed, by one of these younger drivers.
