Many factors contribute to collisions such as bad weather, mechanical failure and roads that are poorly maintained. But many collisions can be attributed to the driver and could have been prevented. Safe driving habits are simple and easy to do but most of the time, drivers simply forget or ignore these safety measures. When they drive they feel that they are the king of the road.
Simple tips to avoid collision: Do not drive on dangerous roads and always retain the legal speed especially during inclement weather like fog, ice, rain and snow. Keep vehicle at top condition by periodic check up of all its parts and replace any damage. Do not drive when you are tired and sleepy. These are simple rules which might keep you from being a number in the fatal accident statistics.
Car Accident victims may be entitled to financial compensation for pain and suffering in addition to economic damages.
