Slick driving conditions on a busy road may contribute to auto accidents. Other factors may include speeding, distracted driving, drowsy driving, reckless driving, and more, which may lead to vehicle occupants incurring a range of injuries as well as the potential for fatalities. Survivors of these types of accidents may endure emotional or physical distress during the recovery process or for years to come.
