Vehicle Accidents that End in Injury or Fatality

When a vehicle accident ends with an injury or a death, it's often difficult for the victim or the victim's family to grasp. How could this accident have happened? Was everyone being as safe as they could have been? Was everyone doing as they should have as they drove? If not, then this could be a case of negligent driving, which is all a victim needs to prove to win their court case.
