Common Causes of Car Accidents

Car and motorcycle accidents can be caused by a wide variety of factors. While some of these cases are due to inclement weather like fog, snow, or rain, the majority of accidents are caused by negligent or reckless driving. Reckless driving, or negligence, is any behavior endangering the safety of others and includes the following:

Aggressive Driving (Road Rage)

Aggressive driving, or road rage, is a situation in which a motorist displays aggressive or violent behaviors. This aggression is often triggered by factors like traffic jams, construction, or miscommunication. Common aggressive driving behaviors include:

  • Excessive lane changing
  • Tailgating
  • Failing to signal
  • Sudden acceleration or braking
  • Excessive horn use
  • Rude gesturing
  • Speeding

Drowsy Driving

Many people fail to realize the dangers of drowsy driving. The fact of the matter is drowsiness slows reaction time, affects the ability to make decisions, and causes driving inattentiveness. Warning signs of drowsy driving are:

  • Excessive yawning
  • Drifting from lanes
  • Hitting rumble strips

Impaired Driving

Impaired driving is one of the leading causes of auto accident injuries and deaths. Drunk drivers need to be held accountable for their actions. If you or a loved one has been injured by an impaired driver, you need an aggressive personal injury lawyer fighting for the pain and suffering compensation you deserve.

Inattentive DrivingAuto Accident Lawyers

Inattentive, or distracted, driving is a major cause of auto accidents in today’s society. This type of negligent driving involves anything which diverts a motorist’s attention from driving safely. Common driving distractions include:

  • Texting
  • Talking on the phone
  • Changing radio stations
  • Eating
  • Applying make up

When you’ve been injured in an auto accident due to the negligence of another driver you need an experienced personal injury lawyer representing your case. Whether you or a loved one suffered whiplash, broken bones, paraplegia, or wrongful death, you deserve to be compensated.
