Common Causes of Car Accidents

Car accidents can be one of the most overwhelming, frightening and stressful experiences a person could experience in life, especially if it results in substantial damage and severe injuries. What makes these type of situations complicated and highly contested is differing accounts and perspectives from all parties. While there are some instances where one party admits fault, disagreements about how an accident transpired typically occurs.

When an accident occurs, you may be confused and likely have questions about the next steps of the process. If you know or realize that someone else caused the accident you were involved in, it’s perfectly fine to hold them accountable. The costs deriving from car accidents are high, which is why it is imperative to retain legal services from an experienced and trustworthy personal injury lawyer.

Common causes of car accidents include the following:

  • Texting while driving
  • Talking on the cellphone
  • Eating while driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Falling asleep behind the wheel
  • Using the navigation system
  • Talking to passengers
  • Reading
  • Defective auto part
  • Switching radio stations
  • Fixing hair or applying makeup while driving
