WHAT ARE SOME OF THE CAUSES OF AUTO ACCIDENTS?
Car crashes account for 3 million injuries and more than 40,000 deaths per year. Insurance rates can increase by 30 percent after your first accident and by as much as 150 percent after a second wreck. As many as 2 million automobile mishaps result in permanent injuries. You can avoid such misfortune by driving defensively and staying alert to these car crash causes:
Distracted driving — When a driver is distracted visually, manually or cognitively, such as by tinkering with a global positioning system (GPS), daydreaming while driving or texting behind the wheel, the chances of a motor vehicle crash increase.
Drunk driving — Although many laws and fines are imposed against those who choose to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, drunk driving still accounts for more than 40 percent of all auto accidents resulting in wrongful death. Alcohol impairs the driver’s ability to focus on tasks such as staying in a lane and surveying the environment. It also impedes the ability to make quick decisions and to stop quickly when the driver of another car brakes.
Traffic violations — Defined as any action that violates a state or federal traffic law, traffic violations include:
• Speeding or traveling much slower than the posted speed limit
• Driving recklessly
• Crossing the median
• Turning improperly
• Failing to stop at stop signs and traffic lights
• Driving into oncoming traffic
• Misjudging and rear-ending another vehicle
• Highway defect — Generally, when the negligent party is not another driver, the cause is classified as a highway defect, including:
• Poorly maintained road
• Malfunctioning traffic control signal
• Improper design or maintenance
• Poor construction signage or lighting
• Erroneous striping on the road’s passing lanes
• Roadway obstruction
•Poorly located trees and utility poles
WHAT TYPES OF INJURIES RESULT FROM MOTOR VEHICLE WRECKS?
Injuries from a car accident can range from bruising to traumatic brain injuries, and even death. Common injuries resulting from motor vehicle wrecks include:
• Broken bones
• Internal injuries
• Concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
• Mental stress and anguish
