We Will Determine How Your Car Accident Occurred
A variety of different circumstances can cause car accidents. Many factors could play a part in yours. Many car accidents are due to human error and could have been prevented.
Yours may have been due to:
Distracted driving can easily cause a severe car accident. Cell phone use is a common cause of distracted driving, for instance. Anything that takes your focus off the road can cause damage. Children in the backseat, other car accidents, or other passengers can also be distractions for a driver.
Drunk driving is hazardous. Alcohol not only reduces inhibition but reaction times (should there be any sudden stops or obstacles in the road). Drunk driving is the cause of many serious car accidents that result in injury. A Babylon car accident lawyer can explore this option when you retain their representation.
Speeding is the cause of many car accidents. Driving too fast can cause damage to you and others around you. You have less reaction time should someone pull out in front of you. Speeding also makes car accidents much more severe by increasing the amount of force inflicted upon impact.
Failure to Stop or Yield
Failing to stop at stop signs or red lights can result in a car accident. Other drivers on the road expect people to follow the rules and regulations of the road. When someone fails to do so, there can be severe, if not fatal, collisions.
Poor Vehicle Maintenance
If your vehicle is not maintained correctly, it can put other people on the road at risk. Poor brakes, no brake lights, or old tires are examples of how a lack of vehicle maintenance can cause car accidents.
