Common Causes of Automobile Accidents

There are many different reasons why automobile and 18-wheeler accidents occur, including driver negligence, driver inattention, texting and driving, speeding, fatigue, failure to yield the right of way from a stop sign or private drive, running a red light, and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
