Some of the time, an accident can be chalked up to bad weather, rough road conditions or traffic. However, the majority of the time, car accidents are caused by the carelessness of drivers. This includes when drivers participate in driving behaviors like speeding, not acknowledging traffic signals or driving while they are under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

- Muscles or tendons have be strained, sprained or torn.
