Car Accidents Caused by Negligence

July 25, 2017

Indianapolis Car Accident Lawyer

Car accidents can be caused by any number of things, but many involve a negligence on the part of a driver. Being aware of the primary sources of accident-causing negligence can help you steer clear of them yourself. If you’ve been injured in a car accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you need an experienced Indianapolis car accident attorney.

Driving While Distracted

Drivers understand the dangers of interacting with their smartphones while driving, but many continue to engage in these risky behaviors. Distracted driving is dangerous driving, and distracted drivers are usually found at fault in car accident cases.

Driving While Intoxicated

Drivers also know that drinking and driving don’t mix, yet many won’t give it up. These impaired drivers experience increased reaction times, poor judgement (as evidenced by their decision to drive in the first place), and decreased coordination – which inhibits driving ability.  Both intoxicated drivers and the bars that serve them to the point of intoxication are routinely charged in car crash cases.

Driving Recklessly

Engaging in reckless behavior while behind the wheel is dangerous. Such behavior can include speeding, driving aggressively, failing to follow the rules of the road, and many others. Reckless drivers often cause accidents.

Driving a Defective Vehicle

Cars are complicated machines, and when defective, they can cause accidents. Defective equipment, including tires, airbags, and ignition switches, can lead to serious injury. In fact, many vehicle parts with potential safety risks are recalled each year. When such parts cause an injurious car-accident, the car or parts manufacturer can be found responsible.

Driving on Roads that Are in Poor Condition

Roads aren’t always kept in good condition. Slippery inclines, uneven grading, and treacherous potholes can all contribute to car accidents. If a governmental entity or contractor failed to adhere to appropriate road-safety measures, that entity can be found responsible for ensuing car accidents.

Identifying Negligence

Identifying the factors of negligence at work in a car accident is not always a straightforward process. Often, negligence is shared by more than one entity. For instance, if you’re injured in a car accident in which the negligent party was on the job, that person’s employer may shoulder or share the blame.
