Common Negligent Causes of Car Accidents
Not all road accidents have legitimate grounds for a personal injury suit. Some causes, like weather, cannot be faulted to any one party if negligence was not a factor. However, many accidents are caused by driver behavior or error. These collisions can and should be evaluated for negligent causes.
Common examples of negligence on the road include:
- Failing to signal turns and lane changes
- Distracted driving (texting, taking phone calls, etc.)
- Failing to heed traffic lights and signs
- Following behind a vehicle too closely
- Drinking and driving
No two car accidents are alike. At Klein DeNatale Goldner, we understand the confusion and uncertainty that many victims have following their collision. We are prepared to sit down with you, assess all known factors that led to your crash, and—if necessary—start streamlining the process to file suit and hold those at fault responsible.
