Common car accident causes

Hundreds of thousands of car accidents take place every single year despite all the best efforts. Driving heavy machinery on a daily basis is an inherently dangerous endeavor, and even with the strictest of traffic enforcement, accidents can still happen.

The most common causes of car accidents include:

  • Distracted driving – this can include texting while driving, unruly passengers, eating while driving, putting on make-up while driving and more
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol – slow reaction times and decreased coordination are among the leading causes of car accidents in America
  • Speeding, aggressive, and reckless driving – driving over the speed limit increases the risk of bodily harm to the driver and potential victims
  • Failure to follow traffic laws – driving through a red light and failing to use turn signals can confuse other drivers and increase the risk of striking a pedestrian
  • Driving while tired – after a long day of work or driving, and taking medications with drowsiness side effects can lead drivers to fall asleep at the wheel
  • Inclement weather and road conditions – poor weather conditions combined with potholes and construction can lead to accidents
  • Poor road design – roads lacking streetlights, proper road signs, stop signs, and traffic lights can lead to confusion on the road

Car malfunction – if your car contains defective parts leading to stalling, difficulty braking, bad tires, or improper deployment of airbags, this can increase the severity and risk of an accident

Common car accident injuries

Cars are unquestionably massive pieces of machinery. Because they are capable of a degree of force outside of the natural limits of the human body, personal injuries can occur to you, the passengers, and other drivers, even in seemingly minor accidents. Personal injuries can lead to long-term consequences for the injured party. Common injuries sustained in a car accident can include:

  • Head injuries
  • Neck, back, and spine injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Internal injuries
  • Knee, leg, and ankle injuries

If you suspect you have sustained personal injury in a car accident as a result of another party’s negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation. It is essential that you call our team at DAME Legal as quickly as possible after your accident.

If you live in the greater New Jersey area or the New York metropolitan area, our partners at DAME Legal can help you overcome this difficult part of your life with relative ease. Give us a call at 201-968-5800 or fill out our contact form on our site to begin the process.

From the time I walked in I realized I had found the right attorneys for me.

Bill from Saddle River

Shelley and her team got me my child back from a non-Hague country. She was there at the worse time in my life for tears on her shoulder and there in the best time in my life when she hugged my daughter as she got off of the plane.

M.M. New York

Ron knew the value of my case, when to fight, what to say and how to say it. He got me ten times more then I thought I would receive.

Juan from Hackensack

Patrick and I went to trial on my matter. Only on T.V. have I ever seen someone with as much command of the courtroom, respect of the Judge, and the ability to get through to the Jury.

Happy Customer

Marilyn is the best Family attorney in the State. That is all you need to know.

Steve from Verona

I never felt like a commodity. I was part of the team.

Mercedes from Jersey City

Pat settled my case and I was set for the rest of my life.

A.R. Hackensack

I was facing the best years of my life incarcerated. Shelley was there for me and my family the entire time. When we got a not-guilty verdict and I told her “you did it,” Shelley shot back with a “WE DID IT !”

Joe from New York

Don’t be taken back by Amanda’s youth. She has the wisdom of George Washington and the wit of George Carlin.

Robert – Paramus

The best thing I can say about Paul is beware the quiet ones. His knowledge of the law outwits all of his adversaries.

Jamie from Montclair
I would like to thank you for your superior and knowledgeable service. This was my first time being in a traffic incident of any type. Your pleasant, polite and reassuring voice really put me at ease.
