Common Causes Of Car Accidents

Many car accidents can be prevented. Every driver has a duty of care towards other drivers and pedestrians. When an individual or company does not follow their duty or don’t obey the traffic law, an accident can take place. The two most common causes of car accidents include:

Distracted Driving

If the accident was caused because the driver was texting or talking on the phone or distracted in any other way, then you can hold that driver responsible for the accident and file a claim against him or her to get compensation for your injuries and damages.

Drunk Driving

You can hold an intoxicated driver responsible for your accident and injuries if his/her blood alcohol level is below 0.08. Our car accident attorneys can help you establish a compensation claim by getting access to breathalyzer or blood test.
