Causes of Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor vehicles are a convenient way to get where you need to be, especially for those who have to commute to their place of work most days of the week. Unfortunately, the frequency of accidents makes getting behind the wheel of a vehicle one of the most dangerous things you can do in the U.S. In fact, car accidents are among the leading causes of injury in the United States, and many are the result of another driver’s carelessness.

At the Law Offices of Paul Levin, we know that becoming the victim of an auto accident in Connecticut forces you to endure more than just physical injury, you also have to endure repair costs, medical bills, and the emotional trauma of being involved in an accident. Going through this situation can be extremely difficult; however, it may be possible to hold the person responsible for the accident financially accountable, making the aftermath a little easier to deal with.

Common Causes of Motor Vehicle Accidents

Many motorists choose to engage in dangerous driving behaviors that put others on the road at an unnecessary risk of injury. Additionally, other parties, such as municipal agencies and manufacturers act recklessly, endangering motorists. Some of the most common ways in which people negligently endanger others on the road include:

  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Speeding or reckless driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Aggressive driving
  • Mechanical or highway defects

No matter what the cause of your motor vehicle accident may be, the consequences can easily become overwhelming. Damages, medical bills, and lost wages may pile up, but you do not have to bear the burden of your accident alone.
