What are the top causes of negligent vehicle accidents?

Almost everyone old enough to drive uses a motor vehicle regularly. Citizens in the Phoenix region of Arizona have come to rely on these machines to take them where they need to go as quickly as possible. Most people feel very confident that they can avoid vehicle accidents, but as you may already know, accidents can come out of nowhere.

Many things can cause a vehicle accident including weather or road conditions, the sudden appearance of wildlife on the road and poor visibility. As far as negligent vehicle accidents, patterns do exist and it is wise to become familiar with them in order to avoid or prevent motor vehicle accidents. The following list includes some of the most common ways negligence can play a role in Arizona vehicle accidents.

  • Distracted driving such as texting, eating or grooming
  • Driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs
  • Disobeying traffic signals such as stop lights or signs
  • Speeding through road construction sites
  • Defective auto design and manufacturing
  • Failure to keep a safe distance behind other vehicles
  • Driving in a reckless and/or aggressive manner

It is reasonable to assume that most drivers do not want to have an accident and take the proper safety measures. Unfortunately, other motorists who do not care about or understand the danger may still put you at risk for a vehicle accident.

The best you can do is to remain alert and prepared for problems on the road at all times. In the event a negligent accident does occur and you are stricken with injuries, please consider seeking justice by working within the legal system. An experienced attorney can show you how.
