A motor vehicle accident occurs when a motor vehicle collides with another vehicle, pedestrian, animal, hazardous road debris, or other physical obstacle such as a power pole. Motor vehicle accidents may be the result of a driver, roadway, a vehicle, or a combination of these variables. An accident is not a random “chance” event without causes, or avoidable outcomes. Negligence and ignorance may play a role. Motor vehicle accidents can result in injury, property damage, or even death.
