Understanding The Cause of a Car Accident
Permanent injuries and loss of income are often the unwanted consequences that follow a car accident. The lawyers at Zappettini & Bradley want you to see what causes accidents, so you can be better prepared as drivers and help take steps towards preventing future hardship or an accident.
Lots of the following lists are common sense issues, ones experienced drivers often take for granted. But, the end result of taking the cause of these for granted often results in an automobile accident. We just assume we know everything, and by a force of habit, don’t bother to reviewing in our head these all-too-familiar pitfalls of highway navigation. The list that follows (which isn’t by any means exhaustive) is meant for both tenured and novice drivers alike.
The top cause of accidents on road now is driving while distracted. Statistically, it’s the number one cause of car accidents today, and between drinking and eating, using a cell phone or turning up the radio – these are all examples of distracted driving that often leads to worse.
People see enough rain they think they can take the road changes for granted. Instead of taking the neccessary precautions – slowing down, braking early, turning your headlights on – since we see rain all the time, we fail at taking one or more preventtive measures.
This is the cause of the driving accident that gets the most press, and with good reason. We should always drive defensively if you encounter anyone that has had more than one.
You or I or someone follows too close, it’s the perfect setup for a car wreck, one that poses a serious consequence. Always keep safe distances between you and the drivers ahead of you.
Here in the greater Sacramento area, everyone is aware of the dangers of racing on the street. The public roadway isn’t a raceway.
Changing Lanes Unsafely
We’re to Laissez-faire in neglecting our turn signals or completely ignoring our blind spot.
It’s easy to lose our cool with all the increased congestion on our roadways. Always keep your cool. Breathe, focus on the task at hand. No retaliating at that driver who messed up and cut you off. They say it all the time “stay the course”
