Common causes of car accidents

Car accidents happen due to several factors. More often than not, these are due to the fault of one or more drivers or issues with the vehicle itself. The most common causes of car accidents include the following:

  • Driver error or negligence: Driver error accounts for the greater percentage of car accidents. Some of the errors in litigation include failure to yield right of way, following too closely, excessive speeding, distracted driving, and driving under the influence.
  • Road defect or negligent design: Surprisingly, road defect also accounts for its own share of accidents. These cases can involve the design of the roadway itself, such as poorly designed on/off ramps and inadequate means of controlling traffic. They can also involve activity on the roadway by official authorities such as construction or maintenance default that leads to an accident.
  • Manufacturing defect: Automobile accidents may also involve a unique class of claims bordering on product liability. These claims involve a defect in the engineering of a motor vehicle. These may include tire blowout, brake failure or failure of airbags.

Third-party fault: On some occasions, car accidents are due to neither the fault of the other driver or the manufacturer. A failure to properly service a vehicle even after it has been delivered for service may fall here.
