Common Causes of Car Accidents

Car accidents are one of the most common types of accidents that occur in the United States. Despite efforts to make the roads safer and improve driver attention, many drivers fail to follow the law. At our firm, we are committed to evaluating all of the facts of your case, including accident reports, photos from the scene, and other evidence. We use this to build a case illustrating the cause of the accident and therefore the other driver's responsibility.

A few of the common causes of car accidents include:

  • Driving over or below the speed limit
  • Failing to signal
  • Driving under the influence
  • Disregarding traffic laws
  • Driving on the wrong side of the road

In some cases, we may be able to hold a driver liable for reckless driving. For example, a driver who was engaged in street racing or another type of willful disregard for others would be considered reckless.

Finding Liability in a Car Accident

Most car accident cases are handled using the law of negligence. The insurance company or the responsible driver's attorney may try to show that they were not liable for the accident. Meanwhile, we look for evidence to prove that the other person behaved negligently, operating their vehicle in a way which led to the accident. Proving that the other party failed to use reasonable care is the basis for a successful lawsuit. Regardless of the severity of your injuries, our legal team at Whiting Hagg Hagg Dorsey & Hagg, LLP is here to support you.
