What are the main causes of car accidents?

Many Cary residents have been in a car accident during their driving career. These accidents are often just minor fender-benders, but, sometimes, a car accident can be serious. So, what are the main causes of car accidents?

Distracted driving is one of the major causes of car accidents. Almost everyone has a cell phone and they can be extremely distracting to drivers. Putting on makeup, eating, and switching the radio station can also be distractions. Anything that takes a driver's attention off the road can lead to a serious accident.

Drunk driving is another dangerous activity that some drivers partake in. Making the decision to drive after a person has been drinking can lead to a serious accident that can lead to serious injuries and even death. Speeding, running red lights, and other reckless driving activities continue to be a major contributor to accidents. Weather can also be a contributor to car accidents but is something a driver doesn't usually have control over except to drive more carefully.

A car accident can often be serious. No one ever expects that they will be in an accident. A car accident can seriously affect a family both financially and emotionally. A legal professional skilled in personal injury cases can help a family who has been affected by a car accident. An attorney can visit the accident scene, interview witnesses, review police reports and get the answers a family deserves to determine what happened to cause the accident. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.

A car accident can affect a family for a long time. Holding a negligent party responsible for the accident can help a family recoup costs and make sure they don't harm anyone else.
