Cause of Car Accidents
Car accidents are usually the result of negligent or reckless behavior on the part of one or more motorists. When this is the case, it goes without saying that an innocent victim has every right to file a claim for compensation. Car accident injuries, which can range from seat belt injuries and whiplash to catastrophic injuries, can have a lasting effect on the victim's life enjoyment as well as their finances. Any economic or noneconomic damages suffered by a car accident victim should be covered by their insurance or that of the liable party.
Distracted driving is likely the top cause of car accidents. Texting and talking on a cell phone without using a hands-free device are illegal in California, yet people still demonstrate negligence in this area and cause accidents. Distractions can also arise from eating, adjusting the stereo, or even talking to a passenger. Other causes of car accidents include driving under the influence, defective products, poor road conditions, and tired drivers. Get immediate legal counsel if you need to file a personal injury claim for an accident caused by any such negligence or recklessness.
Types of Car Accidents
Car accidents come in many different forms, depending on the cause of the accident and the circumstances involved. Some of the most common types of car accidents include:
- Rear-end accidents
- Head-on collisions
- T-bone accidents
- Rollover accidents
- Hit-and-run accidents
Distracted drivers, such as those who talk on the phone or text while driving, often cause rear-end accidents when they fail to notice that traffic has stopped or slowed in front of them. They can also cause side-on collisions by running stop signs or red lights. Front-end accidents and rollover accidents can be caused by reckless driving, tired driving, slick roads, auto product liability, and much more. Any of these can become a hit-and-run accident if the responsible party drives away without exchanging their insurance or contact information.
