Causes of accidents that lead to cross-border personal injury

When British Columbia residents take shopping or other trips south of the border, they will always be at risk of being involved in car accidents. Many cross-border personal injury claims result from crashes caused by one of five top accident causes. The most common reason is distracted driving. While it is true that an accident can happen even if the driver is alert, without distractions there is more time to react in a way that might prevent serious injuries.

Such injuries are particularly prevalent in high-speed crashes, but even crashes at slower speeds could cause serious injuries.
