Auto Accident Attorneys by Cause of Accident
As you may already know, there are many different potential behaviors and circumstances that can lead to an accident. These causes can prove liability or negligence and can point to the responsible party. Though there are many, many possibilities, they can be narrowed down to the most common causes that occur.
Aggressive driving is a regular occurrence, especially during high-pressure times on the roads, such as holiday traffic or rush hour. These particular times can be extremely stressful, and this stress can present itself as aggressive driving. Aggressive driving is classified as any combination of moving traffic offenses that potentially endanger others. This includes excessive speeding, tailgating, running red lights, erratic lane changes, and illegal passing. These behaviors often come with no warning to other drivers, and accidents can be difficult to avoid because of that.
While driving, there are multiple other distractions that beg for our attention, such as unread notifications, text messages, phone calls, food, changing the music, interacting with other passengers, and much more. All of these behaviors take our focus off of the road for any amount of time, which can be dangerous for others on the roads. Often distracted driving causes detrimental accidents and catastrophic injuries, all of which can be prevented by simply paying attention.
Sometimes other drivers are not to blame for an accident, but corporations, cities, or construction companies can be held liable for subpar road conditions that lead to accidents that could have been prevented had they not acted negligently. These kinds of accidents are usually harder to prove fault in, and having an attorney on your side will be beneficial.
Intoxicated driving is fairly self-explanatory. It causes accidents when a driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol and cannot maintain proper control of their vehicle. In a city that is centered on living large and partying it up, intoxicated driving is a fairly regular occurrence. Unfortunately, these accidents usually lead to catastrophic injuries or even death because of the severity of the impact.
There are several potential causes for auto accidents, but regardless of what kind of accident you have been involved in, you could benefit from having an attorney on your side. Contact Eric Blank Injury Attorneys today.
