Leading Causes of Car Accidents

Leading Causes of Car Accidents

Car accidents can have a devastating effect on your life and the lives of your passengers. It is important for drivers to be cautious behind the wheel and to make sure that they behave in a responsible manner at all times. Failure to do so may result in a serious accident that can have lasting consequences for all involved.

If you have questions about who might be liable for the damages caused by an accident, regardless of the cause, you may wish to speak to a legal professional. If you have been in an accident and would like to discuss your legal options, contact the Denver car accident attorneys of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C. at (303) 423-1770 today.

Common Causes

The following list highlights ten of the most common causes of car accidents. They are not necessarily the top 10 causes every year, and are in no particular order:

  • “Rubbernecking” (trying to watch the aftermath of another wreck or near-road situation)
  • Drinking and driving
  • Cell phone use
  • Speeding
  • Eating while driving
  • Road defects
  • Changing the radio/CD player/mp3 player while driving
  • Recklessness (willfully ignoring the rules of the road)
  • Weather conditions
  • Other driver distractions (children, animals, self grooming, etc…)

This is just a small sample of the innumerable threats that can cause a serious accident.
