What Causes Car Accidents?
Car accidents are one of the leading causes of death in the United States, right after heart disease and cancer according to the CDC.
The leading causes of car accidents include:
- Distracted driving: Smartphones, navigation, infotainment systems, and other forms of in-vehicle technology are common causes of distracted driving. However, anything that causes someone to take their attention off the road is dangerous, including the radio, snacks, and passengers.
- Impaired driving: Driving while under the influence of drugs (illegal or prescription) or alcohol impacts one’s ability to be alert, process information, and react quickly. Likewise, sleepiness or exhaustion also diminish a driver’s capability to control a vehicle. If you or a loved one were injured in a drunk driving crash, the veteran car accident lawyers at Falcon Law Firm are ready to help.
- Speeding: While many drivers are tempted to cheat the speed limit, a speeding vehicle is incredibly dangerous and difficult to maneuver safely. The injuries suffered during high-speed collisions can be catastrophic or fatal.
These are some of the most common causes of car accidents, but others may arise like inclement weather on unsafe roads, or issues with the vehicle itself (like improperly made or installed parts). To find out who is responsible for property damage after a car accident, or what to do if your child was involved in a car accident, you may need professional legal advice.
