Top Causes of Auto Accident Lawsuits

Top Causes of Auto Accident Lawsuits

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013

Auto accidents can cause life-altering injuries or death. Sometimes, it may seem as though accidents are unavoidable. Oftentimes, someone else’s careless, negligent behavior leads to an auto accident.

Some of the top causes of auto accident lawsuits include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Alcohol and drugs
  • Speeding
  • Careless driving

With the skyrocketing use of portable electronics, distracted driving has become a common cause of devastating auto accidents. Distraction occurs anytime your hands, eyes or mind are taken away from the task of driving. Distracted driving often happens as a result of:

  • Texting
  • Cell phone use
  • Fatigue
  • Talking to passengers
  • Manually adjusting controls

Distracted driving isn’t always caused by electronics, but this type of distraction can be the most dangerous – especially texting, which involves all three forms of distraction: manual, visual and cognitive.

If someone else’s negligence led to an auto accident and your injuries, you deserve the compensation you will need to heal and make a full recovery.
