What are the most common causes of car accidents?

There are a number of factors that contribute to car accidents, but these are some of the most common:

Distracted driving is one of the top causes of vehicle crashes. The explosion of smartphone technology is taking drivers’ hands of the wheel, their eyes off the road, and their minds off the task of driving.

Impaired driving due to drug or alcohol use is a well-known cause of car accidents. What many people are unaware of is that driving while fatigued can be just as dangerous as drunk driving.

Not following the rules of the road encompasses a variety of behaviors, such as speeding, running red lights, or driving recklessly. Unsafe drivers endanger themselves and others.

What all of these factors have in common is that they are caused by human error, otherwise known as negligence. If you have been injured as the result of someone else’s negligent driving, contact Joyce & Reyes to learn more about your rights.
