There are many factors capable of causing car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents and other vehicle-related personal injury accidents. While some of those factors involve causes beyond our control, such as bad weather, poor visibility or defective parts, negligent and distracted drivers are a common cause of some of the worst motor vehicle accidents. Even with winter weather conditions, and storms like the ones being experienced up and down the east coast, an experienced driver can usually navigate through the city and get where they need to go, without causing an accident. An inexperienced, negligent or distracted driver would not necessarily be able to do the same. It is that negligence, carelessness or disregard for the safety of themselves and others, which makes those types of drivers quite dangerous.
According to statistical reports, the most common cause of car accidents is driver error. Driver error can be broken down into many different categories including driver distraction, inexperience, aggressiveness behind the wheel, speeding, inattention, driving while intoxicated or driving under the influence, failing to obey traffic signs, and more. Unfortunately, driver error, or negligence, is not always easy to prove.
