Car accidents happen in the blink of an eye due to a wide array of reasons, including some of the following:
- Distracted driving such as phone usage while driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol
- Mechanical failure in a vehicle
- Failing to yield the right-of-way at an intersection and other areas
