5 Common Causes of Car Accidents

Even though driving an automobile is part of the daily routine for most people in America, it can still be a very dangerous action when people act recklessly or negligently behind the wheel. With over five million car accidents every year in the United States – twelve every minute – tens of thousands of people die and hundreds of thousands suffer serious injury in automobile accidents annually. Even when an individual attempts to exercise all reasonable caution, he or she is still vulnerable to the actions of others.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a car accident caused by another party’s negligence or recklessness, you may be able to recover financial compensation through a civil lawsuit.

Frequent Contributors to Crashes

It might seem as if the operation of a motor vehicle is straightforward, requiring only the application of the accelerator, the brake pedal, and the handling of the steering wheel. The reality, however, is that there exist a broad variety of factors that influence roadway safety, and it is far more complicated. The following are frequently cited as contributing factors in crashes:

  • Driving at excessive speed
  • Driver error
  • Distracted driving
  • Mechanical defect or malfunction
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs

These are only a few of the many causes of automobile accidents. Contact one of our attorneys today and let us help you fight for financial compensation.
