How Negligence Causes Car Accidents

While some accidents are truly unavoidable, most car collisions are the result of careless and/or reckless drivers. In other, rarer instances, the negligence of another party—such as an automobile manufacturer—may lead to an accident. In either case, the injured party can seek financial recovery from the liable party.

There are many ways in which negligence can contribute to an accident; some common examples include:

  • Distracted driving, including texting while driving
  • Speeding
  • Driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
  • Reckless driving, including street racing and road rage
  • Failure to yield the right-of-way
  • Failure to stop at red lights/stop signs
  • Inexperience
  • Careless driving
  • Unsafe and/or illegal driving behaviors
  • Fatigued driving
  • Following too closely (“tailgating”)
  • Automobile defects
  • Dangerous and/or defective road design

This list is not exhaustive; there are nearly infinite ways in which negligence can lead to accidents. When this is the case, the negligent party can be held legally accountable.
