What Causes Car Accidents?

Motor vehicle accidents can happen for many different reasons and there is often more than one factor contributing to a crash. Some car accidents are the result of reckless or negligent driving, like speeding or driving while intoxicated. Others happen because roadways are obstructed or covered in slippery ice. Still others may happen in parking lots, bumper-to-bumper traffic, busy intersections, or residential streets where pedestrians, drivers, and cyclists all compete for space and right of way.

Whether it involves a car, semi truck, or motorcycle, auto accidents can happen at any time for reasons beyond the driver’s control. Personal injuries from auto accidents happen just as often. Depending on the speed, impact, and severity of a crash, collision injuries can range from mild whiplash to traumatic brain or spinal cord injury. Often times it’s what you choose to do after a car accident that counts. Whatever the circumstances of the accident or the nature of the injuries, an auto accident attorney can help you take your next steps toward compensation and recovery.

Common Causes of Motor Vehicle Accidents:

  • Drunk driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Speeding
  • Driver Inattention
  • Reckless driving
  • Disregard of traffic control devices

Do I Need an Auto Accident Attorney?

Whatever the cause of an auto accident, it has most likely resulted in property damage and personal injury. If you are suffering after an accident that wasn’t your fault, you can qualify for a compensation claim against a person, business, municipality, or insurance company. Ever minor property damage and personal injury has a cost and can disrupt both your work and private life. When pursuing a claim or settlement, determining fault and providing proof of damage are more important than the type of accident.
