We investigate to see the cause of the accident – some involve drivers who use alcohol or other drugs. In other accidents, drivers get distracted by their phones. It’s also common to witness drivers speeding, running red lights, failing to yield, and engaging in other illegal or dangerous behaviors. Sometimes, the fault of an accident stems from a mechanical problem in a vehicle, such as faulty brakes.
