What Are the Common Causes of Car Accidents?

Celebration Auto Accident Lawyers

Operating a motor vehicle requires the full attention of the driver. Whether you are driving a sedan, a sports car, a van, or a truck, you should have your full attention on the task of driving in order to prevent an unnecessary accident. Unfortunately, many drivers neglect this duty and cause an accident, injuring innocent people in the process.

Read below to learn about some of the most common causes of car accidents before you consult a Celebration car accident lawyer from our firm:

Distracted Driving
As mentioned before, operating a motor vehicle requires the full attention of the driver. Common forms of driver distraction include texting while driving, talking on the phone, eating, applying makeup, adjusting the radio/stereo, and talking with passengers.

Reckless & Aggressive Driving
Even when a driver is paying attention, they can still make reckless and dangerous decisions. Aggressive driving such as weaving through traffic, accelerating through yellow lights, tailgating / following too closely, speeding, and racing can all result in a serious car accident.

Tired Driving
When a driver is tired, their reflexes are not as quick in the event of an emergency on the road. They are also more likely to rear-end another vehicle, drift across lane lines, or fall asleep at the wheel.

Drunk Driving
We all know how dangerous drunk driving can be. When a person is intoxicated by alcohol and/or drugs, they are not in a position to drive safely. Drunken drivers are prone to drift over lane lines, speed, drive without headlights, and run red lights. All of these and more can result in an accident and serious personal injury.

Defective Auto Products
Were you injured because of a blowout, brake failure, engine trouble, transmission trouble, or some other mechanical failure? Your accident may be the result of auto product liability. If you accident was caused by a product that had no reason to be faulty, you could recover compensation from the auto dealer, the manufacturer, or both.
