Common Causes of Auto Accidents

Car accidents are one of the leading types of personal injury claims, as more than 6 million accidents occur in the U.S. every year, injuring more than 3 million individuals. Nearly everyone relies on vehicles, whether they be personal cars, trucks, or buses, to help them get to work or run errands. Most car accidents are caused by driver errors and can result in serious injuries, especially the bigger and heavier the vehicles involved. Many vehicle accidents involving trucks result in catastrophic injuries and fatalities.

Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol

Intoxicated driving accounts for a large percentage of car accidents and can cause drivers to have slowed reaction times, as well as exhibit other forms of distracted driving like drifting over into nearby lanes. Driving while drunk or on drugs doesn’t just put the driver at risk, but all drivers, passengers, and pedestrians within their vicinity.

Fatigued driving

Many drivers who are exhausted, including truck drivers, think it’s safe to drive. Unfortunately, fatigued driving can sometimes be as dangerous as intoxicated driving, as drifting off or sleeping at the wheel can cause accidents that inflict major damage. Commercial truck drivers who have to drive long distances are known to fall asleep and collide with cars in front of them, or veer into oncoming traffic.

Distracted driving

This includes behavior that prevents drivers from keeping focused on the road and their surroundings, including texting and taking calls while driving. Being distracted can prevent drivers from braking in time before colliding with vehicles or obstacles in front of them.

Reckless driving

This kind of driving fails to adhere to established road laws and can endanger the lives of nearby drivers. Examples of reckless driving include tailgating, failing to signal before changing lanes, not checking for cars in blind spots before changing lanes, exiting freeways suddenly, turning without the right of way, and more.


Going above the speed limit accounts for many car accidents. Speeding can cause significant damage in an accident and can prevent drivers from reacting to road hazards in time. Speeding can also cause drivers to lose control of their vehicles, especially when hydroplaning in rainy or icy weather is involved.
