What Are the Most Common Causes of Car Accidents?

No Matter the Cause, Our Personal Injury Lawyers Are on Your Side After a Crash

It’s no secret that car accidents happen all too frequently. Many people are afraid of plane crashes and shark attacks, when statistically their daily commute poses more danger than all those other threats combined. A car can collide with another car or object in one of a hundred different ways. No less numerous are the potential causes for that collision. How many times have you ended up at your destination with no recollection of your journey there? Even the slightest irregularity can result in an accident when the driver is not paying close attention.

It would serve little value for us to attempt a comprehensive list of causes of car accidents. Instead, we have taken six of the most common causes and expounded on them in the hopes that it will be of some use to in the event of an accident.

Tips For Avoiding Car Accidents

There will always be factors outside of your control, and while it is impossible to put any sort of fail-proof, anti-accident measures in place, there are a few steps you can take to lower your risk of getting into an automobile accident.

  1. Scan the road ahead and your side and rearview mirrors constantly
  2. Identify swerving or irregularly moving cars and avoid their proximity
  3. Familiarize yourself with your vehicle and your vehicle’s limits
  4. Maintain awareness of your blind spots
  5. Avoid the “fast” lane in medium to high traffic
  6. Keep your car well-maintained
  7. Drive mostly during the daytime rather than at sunrise, dusk, or night

In The Event Of An Accident

Even the most careful drivers can end up in a motor vehicle accident. In the event of an accident, the first step is always to seek medical attention immediately. Take care of your health first. Next, call an experienced car accident lawyer to review your case and help you plan your next steps.
