Car Accident Causes
Understanding The Cause Of Your Accident
In almost every personal injury lawsuit, one of the most important factors in determining the success of your case is the cause of your accident. To have a good chance of gaining a favorable outcome, you must have sufficient proof showing that another party should be held responsible for the damages resulting from a collision.
An experienced personal injury lawyer knows what evidence you need to win a lawsuit and has the resources necessary to gather this proof. Even if you’re unsure of the cause of the accident or question whether taking legal action is the right course, a lawyer will have the relevant insight you need to make an informed, confident decision.

Common Causes Of Accidents In Texas
Car accidents can happen for all types of reasons, but most collisions are caused simply by driver negligence. On a busy highway, taking one’s eyes off the road for a second can lead to dangerous outcomes. The same applies to busy city streets or even residential neighborhoods.
Negligent driving is another term for distracted driving and can be described as doing anything that takes a driver’s attention away from the road. Looking at a map, texting while driving, and eating behind the wheel are all examples of distracted driving. In fact, in Texas, it’s illegal for drivers to text behind the wheel because it is so dangerous.
There are many other causes of accidents including:
Drunk driving accidents, which despite tough DUI laws, continue to be a common problem
Reckless driving and speeding as well as additional behaviors which ignore road rules
Defective car parts for which the manufacturer can be held liable
Dangerous roads that feature potholes, poor signage, and other preventable driving hazards
If you’re unsure whether any of the above causes contributed to your accident, our attorneys will carefully research what happened to identify any other unseen causes or factors that could increase your likelihood of getting compensation.
