Major Causes of Car Accidents

Distracted Driving


Distracted driving becomes a larger threat to our roads every year and has been the leading cause of car accidents for decades.  There are 3 major categories of distracted driving: visual distraction, physical distraction, and cognitive distraction.  A driver who is texting while driving is visually distracted because his eyes are not on the road, physically distracted because both of his hands are not on the wheel, and cognitively distracted because his mind is elsewhere.



Speeding is dangerous.  Serious car accidents occur every day because of speeding.  Although it may be tempting to push the speed limit when you are running late, speeding is the second most common cause of car accidents, so you should resist the urge and stay within the legal limits.

Running Red Lights


Red always means stop.  Even if it seems like no other cars are coming, running through a red light is breaking the law.  Serious accidents occur every day as a result of drivers running through red lights.

Drunk Driving


Drunk driving is one of the most dangerous causes of accidents in the U.S. and is the most deadly.  Drunk driving may make liability not only clear, but aggravated.  If you have had anything to drink, take an Uber, taxi or give your keys to a sober friend.  It is not worth the risk.

Reckless Driving


Changing lanes too quickly, speeding well over the speed limit, and acting aggressively on the roads can lead to horrific accidents.  Take a deep breath.  It is important to remain calm while driving to avoid needless accidents caused by simple neglect and carelessness.

Improper Turns/Wrong-Way Driving


When drivers don't get in the proper lane to make a turn, use traffic signals properly, or follow traffic signals, auto accidents happen.  Always look out for traffic signs and obey the proper right-of-way when you make a turn.
