With more and more residents on the road, the chances of being involved in a car crash are unfortunately much higher. Auto accidents are a very common type of accident and it is likely a person will be involved in one over the lengthy course of time he or she is driving. When a vehicle collision is caused by the negligence of another party, the injured victim has the right to pursue compensation from those deemed at-fault.
Common Car Accident Causes
As of 2009, more than 10 million motor vehicle accidents occur in the U.S., according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Though technological advancements are continuously being developed to help prevent auto accidents, dangerous crashes still occur and are caused for a number of different reasons. The following are some of the more common causes of motor vehicle accidents:
- Distracted driving, which can involve distractions such as using a cell phone or adjusting the music player in a car;
- Driver fatigue, which accounts for an estimated 100,000 crashes each year in the U.S.;
- Speeding, which can greatly increase the severity of an accident;
- Drunk driving, a dangerous behavior that is a 100% preventable accident cause; and
- Aggressive driving, including behaviors such as tailgating.
As some of the more common causes of accidents show, drivers are often a primary cause of auto accidents, so car crash prevention largely lies in the hands of motorists.
