Causes of highway accidents
According to a Highway Patrol Division Officer, the three most common causes of car accidents are:
- Excessive speed
- Aggressive or illegal passing
- Inattentive or impaired drunk driver accidents
When one driverâ€™s negligent actions directly or indirectly cause another driverâ€™s accident, the driver at fault must be held accountable. For example, if a driver was speeding and texting while he was â€śin controlâ€ť of the vehicle at the time of the accident, your attorney will introduce evidence to prove that the crash and resulting injuries were a natural and probable result of the defendantâ€™s negligent conduct. This evidence will be used in negotiations with the insurance carrier(s) and with other liable parties or in court if the case is not settled.
