Common Causes Of Car Accidents

Our firm handles car accident cases caused by any example of negligence or recklessness by another party, but some of the more common causes we see include:

  • Texting and driving — Accidents caused by drivers who were distracted because of texting while driving: sending a text message requires the driver to take his or her eyes off the road for several seconds at a time. The results are often catastrophic.
  • Cellphone-related accidents — Many people think they can safely talk on a cellphone while driving, but studies show that this type of distraction is similar to driving under the influence of alcohol.
  • Excessive speeding — When driving at high speeds, it is easy to lose control of the car. Additionally, when driving too fast, the driver may not have enough time to brake and avoid a collision.
  • Reckless driving — In New York, reckless driving is a crime. This can involve any form of driving that endangers other drivers and/or goes against traffic laws.
  • Drunk driving — We all know the dangers of drunk driving. Other forms of impaired driving — driving while under the influence of drugs or prescription drugs — are also dangerous.
