What Are the Causes of Car Accidents?

Every auto accident is unique, and the specific circumstances of each wreck will dictate the finding of liability in the wreck. However, the accident lawyers at The Cochran Firm understand that the basic cause of most accidents is simple: negligence.

There are some accidents where no one is really at-fault. However, in the vast majority of these wrecks someone made an avoidable mistake to cause the crash. And when the accident results in injuries and financial hardship, it’s reasonable to expect the negligent party to provide some compensation.

Common causes of car accidents include:

  • Speeding
  • Other forms of reckless driving
  • Distracted driving, especially texting while driving
  • Failure to account for weather or road conditions
  • Fatigue
  • Defective vehicles
  • Refusal to share the road with motorcycles, bicycles or pedestrians
Of course, this isn’t an exhaustive list. There are a tragically large number of ways for a driver to behave negligently.

Our accident lawyers are equipped to investigate your accident and determine its cause. We know what negligence looks like and how to prove it in court.
