Even if you are not the driver of the car that was hit, you can be classified as an accident victim. That can happen if you are a passenger, by-stander, or even the spouse of an injured individual.
The main reasons for a car accident to occur can be:
The driver’s distraction, due to texting, speaking on the phone or to other passengers, listening to aggressive music, looking at the scenery etc.
The driver’s exhaustion: those individuals who drive long hours or late night hours can be a bit drowsy and inattentive to the road.
Medication and alcohol: if the driver has been under the influence of a sedative medicine of had a drink or two before getting behind the wheel there is a high risk that the his/her reactions have slowed down a lot.
Exceeding the speed limit: that was always a huge issue, especially on interstate roads where drivers sometimes allow themselves to speed up even in bad weather conditions because the number of other vehicles on the road is limited.
Poor weather conditions: fog, rain, snow, thin ice, or wind can be tricky even for the most experienced drivers if they are not concentrated enough.
You should take all these in mind next time you get behind the wheel. A minute of negligence can cause you a lot of pain and suffering and can not only wreck your car but also hurt other people and wreck their vehicles as well.
