Losing someone in a car accident can be devastating and confusing enough for families. However, learning that the accident could have been prevented can make the situation even more difficult to understand. A large number of fatal car accidents are caused by the negligence of other drivers who do not take other people's safety into consideration when they get behind the wheel.
The most troubling aspect of a negligent driver is that too many of them do not learn their lesson, even if they cause an accident. They continue to speed, drive drunk or drive without a license even though they know it's wrong, and even if they've been in trouble for doing it once already. A California family recently learned that the driver who caused the accident that killed a 39-year-old woman had been involved in another fatal accident years before.
