All drivers have a legal obligation to be mindful of the other drivers on the road, and to carry valid car insurance in the event of an accident. Unfortunately, many car and truck drivers fail to pay attention while they drive, leading to tragic – and preventable – car crashes.

What Causes Car Accidents?
Each year, about 6 million U.S. drivers are involved in a car accident of some kind. While the majority of these are fender benders that only result in property damage, approximately 30% of all crashes result in an injury for one of the vehicle occupants – that’s almost 2 million injuries per year. With the rise of distracted driving, the roads are also becoming more dangerous, as texting or talking while driving can significantly increase the risk of a fatal crash.
Here are some of the top causes for auto accidents in the U.S.:
- Falling asleep or driver drowsiness
- Drunk driving
- Failing to come to a complete stop
- Reckless driving
- Road rage
- Talking on the phone
- Failing to use turn signals
- Driving under the influence of drugs
- Texting while driving

Because we’re experts at negotiating, we can stand up for you and ensure that the insurance companies pay their fair share. Whether your case ultimately goes to court or not, our attorneys will give you the compassionate counsel you need.
