Causes of Car Accidents
Negligent Driving Habits
More often than not, car wrecks are caused by negligence. Common causes of car wrecks include: driver fatigue, talking on a cell phone, texting, being hurried or rushed, and driving while drunk. Drivers should always make sure they have had plenty of rest and sleep before driving. Drivers should never talk on their cell phones or text. Drivers should allow sufficient time to arrive at their destinations so they are not hurried or rushed. Drivers should never drive drunk or drink and drive.
Timing is often an important part of successfully prosecuting a car accident case. The witnesses will need to be interviewed while the events are still fresh in their minds. The accident scene will need to be photographed before any changes are made. The vehicles will need to be inspected and examined before any repairs are made.
If you or a loved one has been injured by a negligent driver, and to protect your rights, you should not give a statement to an insurance adjuster until you have contacted an attorney.
