Causes of Motor Vehicle Accidents
Many traffic accidents occur because a driver has been negligent in some way, which means that they operated their car, truck or motorcycle in a careless and unsafe manner. The accident attorneys at The Barrist Firm have represented clients injured as a result of all types of driver negligence.
A driver can be considered negligent for a wide variety of reasons, including not following the rules of the road (violating speed limits, not using turn signals or ignoring traffic signals). Distracted driving is now considered a major factor in many motor vehicle accidents. Drivers are often preoccupied with using a handheld device whether talking, texting or emailing as well as reading, eating or grooming while driving. These are all hazardous driving behaviors that can ultimately lead to serious consequences for the driver, passengers, other vehicles and innocent bystanders. Other common causes of motor vehicle accidents include poor weather conditions, driver fatigue, dangerous road conditions and aggressive driving.
Victims of Motor Vehicle Accidents Can Suffer a Wide Range of Personal Injuries
Injuries associated with motor vehicles crashes such as automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents, and bicycle accidents can be very severe. These types of accidents can inflict a wide range of injuries from minor to major, and from temporary to permanent disabling injuries.
Examples of injuries associated with accidents include disk herniations/bulges, head trauma, spinal cord injuries, bone fractures, amputations, abrasions, and internal organ damage. Accident victims with these types of injuries often require costly medical care that can extend beyond weeks and months into years or if the injuries are so catastrophic, many will require lifelong care and treatment. Also, victims involved in transportation-related accidents may have their ability to earn a living or take care of their family affected.
