There are many potential causes of a motor vehicle accident

In a perfect world, you would never have to concern yourself with being involved in a motor vehicle accident. Instead, you could get behind the wheel and navigate to and from your intended destination without incident.

Unfortunately, regardless of where you live, you know that this is not the case. Even if you do your part in being cautious on the road, others don’t always care to do the same.
Some of the most common causes of motor vehicle accidents include:

  • Fatigue
  • Distracted driving, such as texting
  • Bald tires and other vehicle defects
  • Poor road design
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Unsafe turns or lane changes
  • Driving the wrong way on a one way road
  • Reckless driving, such as speeding

It only takes one mistake by a driver to cause a serious motor vehicle accident. For example, if a person takes his or her eyes off the road to send a text, it could result in a crash.

At our law firm, our goal is simple: to help prove that the other driver was at fault for the accident. By doing this, we put you in position to receive a personal injury settlement that can be used for everything from paying medical bills to protecting against future lost wages.

You hope to avoid a motor vehicle accident in the future, but there is no way of knowing if you’ll ever find yourself in this unenviable position. If you do, you should immediately turn your attention to your health and legal rights.
