Car Accident Solicitor in Perth
Car accidents are one of the leading causes of accidental injury and death in Australia. Tragically, most car accident related injuries and deaths could be prevented. According to reports, driver negligence is responsible for causing a large percentage of car accidents. All too often, drivers are operating their vehicles distracted, drunk or recklessly. Cell phone use (although illegal in Western Australia) is a significant cause of driver distraction and ultimately, the main contributing factor in many car accidents. According to the Road Safety Commission, between 15 – 20 percent of all distraction related accidents involved driver interaction with technology.
