Driving safely is a top priority for many Austin residents while others take it for granted. Getting distracted or being rushed has caused many drivers to put safety second while behind the wheel. Many people will speed up in the attempts to make a red light or quickly check their phone for any messages while driving down the highway. Whatever the reason, copious amounts of Americans suffer injuries from these somewhat ‘harmless’ habits.

Many Austin car accident attorneys have seen the dangers and injuries they cause. In 2010, an estimated 2.24 million Americans were injured from motor vehicle traffic crashes. The cause of most of these accidents is almost always preventable. Human error accounts for 90 percent of all car accidents. Reckless driving, distracted drivers and driving under the influence are all part of human error. Recently one Texas driver was the victim of human error that caused them back and neck pain.
