Common Causes of Motor Vehicle Accidents

Vehicle accidents rarely just happen. Something or someone almost always causes them. A wide variety factors can contribute to vehicle accidents.  The most common types of automobile accidents are caused by:

  • Driver Error or Driver Negligence: Driver error can arise under many situations.  Accidents happen when a driver speeds, runs a red light, tailgates or drives under the influence.  They can also occur when drivers allow themselves to be distracted by their cell phones, by changing the radio station or by putting on makeup.
  • Road Defects or Negligent Design of the Roadway:  Auto accidents can also be caused by poorly designed or maintained roadways.  Potholes, roadway construction, debris or lack of safety barriers can cause serious and even fatal accidents.
  • Vehicle Defects or Malfunctions:  In the case of faulty vehicle manufacturing, an accident can be caused by a tire blowout, brake failure, gas tank ignition, seatbelt defect, airbag failure or vehicle rollover.

Motor Vehicle Accident Claims

The costs of a motor vehicle accident can be devastating.  And when someone else’s carelessness is to blame, the law holds them responsible.  Whether it’s a person that caused the accident, a careless corporation or the government, he or she, or their insurance company, must pay for all resulting damages.  Recoverable damages include:

    • Property damage:  You are entitled to recover the money necessary to repair your vehicle and to any loss of its value.
    • Medical bills:  Medical expenses can add up quickly and in an instant, can wipe you out financially.  You shouldn’t have to go bankrupt for something which was not your fault.
    • Lost wages:  If you have to miss work or take vacation pay, you deserve to be compensated for it.
    • Physical and emotional pain:  These damages are the hardest to calculate.  And you can be sure insurance companies will value your pain and suffering far lower than you do.
    • Loss of future earning capacity: If your earning power is permanently affected by your injuries, the careless person who hurt you should pay for that as well.
  • Wrongful death damages:  If you have lost a loved one because of the carelessness of another, you are entitled to recover damages for the loss of their love and companionship.

Unfortunately, trying to get the recovery you are entitled to from an insurance company can be like pulling teeth.  The fact of the matter is that they are more interested in saving money than in paying fair compensation to accident victims.
