Common Causes Of Car Accidents

With millions of vehicles on the road each day, drivers can run into a variety of obstacles they may or may not be prepared for. Although drivers can ensure that they are obeying the rules of the road, the habits and decisions of other drivers can change things drastically.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a motor vehicle accident caused by a careless or inexperienced driver, you may be entitled to seek compensation for property damage, medical expenses, lost wages and more.

For a complimentary case evaluation by one of our knowledgeable attorneys, fill out the " Free Case Evaluation" form to your right — it's completely confidential — or call our law offices today at 800-374-8422.

At Simien & Simien, LLC, we offer complimentary case reviews, and we only get paid if we secure compensation for you.

Common Causes Of Auto Accidents

Between Texas and Louisiana, there are more than 23 million vehicles registered and traveling throughout the roadways, highways and interstates. Each year, thousands of these drivers are involved in car crashes.

Some of the most common causes of car crashes include:

DUI/DWI

In 2012, between Texas and Louisiana there was an average of 848 DUI-related accidents per state. In Louisiana, about 6 percent of these crashes resulted in fatalities while many others led to serious accident injuries.

Speeding

Exceeding the speed limit is a common practice, however, when drivers do not obey speed limits and fail to control their vehicles, the result can be disastrous. Speeding was the No. 1 cause of all collisions in Texas in 2012.

Texting and driving

Texting and driving are currently banned in more than 40 states, including Louisiana. Unfortunately, this adult and teen habit is a leading cause of car accidents nationwide despite there being a ban in most states.

Reckless or aggressive driving

Behaviors such as tailgating, excessively speeding and road rage can quickly escalate and lead to a serious crash. In Texas, more than 300 accidents in 2012 were attributed to road rage.

Distractions

Although cellphones and other hand-held devices are the leading distraction while driving motor vehicles, others such as eating or paying attention to children can cause a collision. Drivers should always give their full attention to their actions on the road as well as the actions of other drivers.
