According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), someone in America dies every 15 minutes in a motor vehicle accident. Motor vehicle crashes - which include car accidents, truck accidents and motorcycle accidents as well as train collisions and plane crashes - are the most common cause of death for individuals between the age of 5 and 35.
In most cases, serious motor vehicle accidents are caused by a negligent or reckless driver. Examples of such negligence include texting while driving, drunk driving, speeding and falling asleep at the wheel.
Accidents can also result from defective or dangerous products, such as a vehicle that was poorly designed or a tire that was manufactured with defects. A vehicle manufacturer's negligence may not always cause a fatal accident, but it can increase the severity of resulting injuries. For instance, a company may design a car with the fuel tank too close to the occupant compartment, greatly increasing risk of severe burns during an accident.
