Auto accidents occur for a number of reasons, but most of them involve some degree of negligence.

Negligence on the drivers part are the most common cause of many fatal car accidents, however other known causes include defective products, defective air bags or seat belts, or even tires tread separation, there are also reported case concerning defective seat backs.

Accidents involving trucks account for over 130,000 injuries in the United States. There are 5,000 deaths each year and close to 35% of the injuries are catastrophic.
