According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, debris-related crashes occur four times more likely on interstate highways than crashes not involving debris. It’s recommended to avoid a debris-related accident, you should maintain your vehicle, secure vehicle loads, and drive defensively.
Those that refuse to maintain their vehicles, secure vehicle loads, or drive defensively are negligent drivers. Negligent drivers make it easier to cause accidents, whether it be from debris or speeding or distracted driving. If you were injured in a car accident, you may have a claim for negligence against the driver or party responsible for your injuries.
