WHAT DRIVING BEHAVIORS CAUSE CAR ACCIDENTS?

In order to prevent auto accidents from happening, several safety organizations have dedicated much of their time to studying the causes and effects of traffic collisions. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevent (CDC), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and the American Automobile Association (AAA) are among just some of these groups that have thoroughly researched the causes of car accidents.

While the information and data gathered is primarily meant to be preventative in use, it can also benefit you after you have been in a car accident. If one or more of the most common causes of auto accidents can be pinpointed in your case, it could work to shift liability off you and onto the other parties.

According to several studies, some of the top causes of preventable car accidents include:

  • Speeding  |  Driver Intoxication  |  Distracted Driving (Texting While Driving)  
  • Defective Auto Parts  |  Reckless Driving  |  Adverse Weather or Road Conditions

DO NOT ADMIT FAULT AFTER AN ACCIDENT

After an auto accident, your first instinct is probably going to be to apologize to everyone else involved in the crash. As upsetting as this might sound, you should not apologize to anyone at all, not even your own passengers. Insurance adjusters can use your apologies later when they are reviewing the claims and twist them into admissions of guilt and an acceptance of fault.

Even though you were only trying to be a Good Samaritan and kind, it could realistically backfire and put blame, and recovery costs, onto your shoulders. This is pretty crucial so it bears repeating: under no circumstances should you accept blame for a car accident.

Figuring out what you need to do next after being in an auto accident is generally not as straightforward as it might seem. Do you need to talk to insurance companies first? Head over to the hospital for another checkup? Should you take the first settlement offer that comes your way?

Worsham Law Firm took excellent care of my case. They were there for me through the entire process and beyond. The legal team treated me with respect and I was honored to be represented by them. I highly recommend this establishment to anyone who needs their case to be handled by professionals. Their paralegals Codi and Kristen kindly helped me any time I called with questions or needed help. Will Worsham listened intently during my consultation and gave me sound advice. Johnnie Burgess represented me in the courthouse and did an excellent job guiding me through the process and kept me well informed on what would happen after each stage of the process. This is a team you can trust and I highly recommend them to those who need legal help!
