Causes of Car Accidents
Was your car accident caused by any of the following?
There are a vast number of factors that could have caused your car accident.
Our firm wanted to provide information on the different types of
car accidents as well as supply you with the information that you would need to contact
a skilled attorney for representation. While not a comprehensive list,
below are some of the most common causes of car accidents.
Aggressive Driving- This type of driving is characterized by speeding, tailgating, excessive
lane changes and the like. Those who drive aggressively take little notice
of the damage that they may cause other drivers on the road. If you were
injured in an accident because the other driver was practicing aggressive
driving practices, you may be entitled to legal help.
Weather/Road Conditions- While no one can control adverse weather conditions, people can control
how they respond to them. In a rain storm, for example, the city may be
required to respond by closing a road. Poor signage or poor maintenance
of city roadways may also contribute to a collision.
Tired Drivers- According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more
than 100,000 car crashes each year are caused by drowsy driving. About
1,550 of those result in death and 70,000 result in injury. A drowsy driver
who caused your accident could be found to have been negligent.
Distracted Drivers- Arguably the most common cause of collisions is distracted driving. This
can happen any time a driver takes their eyes, hands or even their mind
off of the road. If you were injured by a driver who was
driving while texting or otherwise distracted, call our firm.
