Most personal injury claims that arise out of car accidents involve allegations of negligence by one or more of the drivers involved. In some cases, however, the car manufacturer or others may have contributed to the accident through their negligence in letting unsafe vehicles on the road.
Many things can have impacts on accident and injury likelihood out on the roads. This includes what traffic safety rules a state has. One class of traffic safety laws that many states have been adding in recent years are rules against distracted driving.
