Causes of Car Accidents

While some motor vehicle collisions are unavoidable, many are caused by the negligence of drivers, auto parts manufacturers, or government entities. Negligence that can lead to an accident may include:

  • Drunk driving - Drivers who get behind the wheel when they are intoxicated by alcohol, controlled substances, or prescription drugs put everyone on the road in danger. Those injured by a drunk driver may be able to pursue compensation from the driver themselves or from a bar or restaurant that sold them the alcohol that caused them to become inebriated.
  • Distracted driving - Taking one's eyes or attention off the road for even an instant can have deadly results. Drivers who are distracted by phone calls, text messages, navigation systems, or other people in the car may be held responsible for accidents that they cause.
  • Aggressive driving - Speeding, tailgating, running red lights or stop signs, or otherwise failing to follow the rules of the road are all behaviors that can lead to dangerous accidents. People who fail to drive safely may be held liable for the injuries that they cause.
  • Defective parts - A manufacturer may be liable for injuries that result when equipment fails to function correctly. Tire blowouts, brake failure, or malfunctioning steering systems can cause serious accidents, and defective seat belts, car seats, or airbags can turn a dangerous collision into a deadly one.
  • Dangerous roads - A city or state government may be responsible for injuries that occur because of road defects, malfunctioning traffic lights, improper signage, or dangerous intersections.

Dangerous Collisions Involving Large Trucks

While all types of motor vehicle collisions can cause serious injuries and costly monetary damages, accidents involving semi-trailer trucks are especially dangerous. Due to the huge difference in size and weight between tractor-trailer trucks and passenger vehicles, truck accidents often result in serious injuries to the drivers and passengers of these vehicles. In many cases, these accidents are the direct result of negligence by truck drivers and/or trucking companies, and an experienced attorney can help demonstrate liability and recover compensation for those who suffer injuries in truck collisions.
