Causes of Auto Accidents in New Haven
Some of the main causes of auto accidents include:
Distracted driving – When a driver’s attention is focused on texting, talking on a cell phone, following GPS directions, adjusting the radio etc., and their eyes are off the road (even for a couple of seconds), they are distracted, and this often results in serious car wrecks. If you are the victim of a car collision due to the distracted driving of the other party, you can file an auto accident lawsuit against them.
Reckless driving – Overly aggressive driving or reckless driving is the cause of many auto accidents. If a driver speeds, tailgates or makes sudden turns or lane changes without looking, they pose a threat to other drivers and passengers. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury or vehicle damage due to the negligent or reckless driving of another driver, consult with Attorney Michael P. D’Amico of D’Amico Law, LLC.
Driving under the influence (DUI) – A person with a blood alcohol content of .08 percent is legally under the influence and should not operate a motor vehicle. A person may also be legally under the influence if they are under the influence of medication or illicit drugs—anything that impairs the ability to drive. Drunk drivers pose a serious threat to everyone on the road. If you are a loved one is the victim of a car crash and the other driver is given a DUI, the potential for compensation is even higher than in a standard car accident.
Drowsy Driving -Fatigued driving is a major threat to road safety, comparable to intoxicated or distracted driving. These accidents frequently occur at night and often involve drivers who have been traveling for long periods of time or drivers who are coming home from work after a long shift.
