Auto Accidents Due to Road Hazards

Most automobile accidents occur due to negligence, such as speeding, drunk driving, fatigued driving, distracted driving, et al., and driver error.

In several cases, however, vehicle collisions are the result of road hazards. More than 50% of road fatalities in automobile accidents are the result of deficient road design conditions, according to recent research.

In many cases, US Congress doesn’t seem to have intentions of approving an extensive funding plan to repair our highways. Supposedly, states rarely budget sufficient funds to maintain our highways and roads.

This can result in hazardous road conditions, which can cause collisions to bring vehicle fatalities and injuries.

The Extinction of The Highway Trust Fund

The poor conditions of roads across the nation cost motorists over $500 in additional maintenance and operation costs on vehicles. This is according to recent research and analysis.

Unfortunately, the Highway Trust Fund is likely to become instinct. Lawmakers in US Congress can’t come to an agreement on a fix that’s temporary. According to experts, this will only be an inadequate solution, like putting a band-aid on a flow of blood.

Numbers from recent analysis reveal that nearly 30 percent of key freeways, interstates, and urban arterial roadways, are in shoddy condition.

This means roads across the nation are inundated with potholes, cracks, and ruts which need to be rebuilt completely, not merely resurfaced.

Potholes and road cracks place plenty unwanted wear and tear on many a vehicle. Not only do they damage your automobile tires, but they reduce gas mileage as well.

These factors can estimate to more than $500 extra in yearly costs. This goes far beyond what an individual would pay in vehicle maintenance if road conditions were satisfactory. Conclusion:

Among the leading causes of all injuries, vehicle accidents result in 6 million collisions reported here in the United States. Approximately 30,000, among these, would be referred to as fatal.

About 2 million crashes involved additional injuries. They result in damage, which can be severe. Economically, the cost of vehicle collisions can estimate to billions of dollars per year. This is about $1000 for every living individual in America.

From vehicle accidents, injuries range between each individual, vehicle collision to vehicle collision.

Several of them are more common than others. Thus, it’s best to contact a physician for more specific cases and information.

For the most part, the majority of individuals across the state either drive an automobile, or ride with family and loved ones.

Crucial vehicle collisions can leave immense emotional scars on those who have sustained these injuries. Individuals who witness automobile crashes can be affected as well.

Counseling and medical treatments for psychological injuries, post traumatic stress disorder, and similar injuries can essentially be common.

If you or a loved one suffer an injury in a vehicle collision, you should immediately contact an experienced automobile injury attorney.
