Causes of Car Accidents
Car accidents have a number of causes, most of which are related to negligence or wrongdoing. The primary cause of car accidents throughout the U.S. is driver error or negligence. As an example, drunk driving accidents account for approximately one-third of all fatal traffic accidents throughout the U.S. each year, other car crash statistics are just as troubling. Additional forms of negligence may include: speeding, driving recklessly, or disobeying a traffic law, as well as simple errors such as failing to check one's blind spot or not looking both ways before proceeding through an intersection. Less common causes of Gainesville car accidents may include: automobile defects or malfunction, or poor road or weather conditions.
Depending on the cause of your serious car accident, you may be able to hold another driver responsible, or perhaps an automobile or auto part manufacturer. In some cases, you may even be able to hold the local government responsible for poorly maintained or designed roads or intersections.
