Regrettably, these accidents continue to take the lives of hundreds of people annually. There are countless instances where innocent people lose their lives as a result of collisions caused by careless and negligent drivers.
We see far too many people die in car crashes due to drivers who are speeding, drunk, under the influence of drugs, or engaging in other negligent actions while behind the wheel.
