Causes of Car Accidents in Houston
Reckless and Inattentive Driving is Negligent Driving
In 2011, the International Organization for Road Accident Prevention reported that more than 90% of car crashes were caused by human error. A vast majority of these crashes may have been prevented if individuals had been practicing safer driving habits. More importantly, if you find yourself involved in a car accident, there is a significant chance that it was caused by driver negligence.
- Common causes of car accidents include the following:
- Inattentive driving
- Failure to yield right of way at left turns
- Driving under the influence of drugs/alcohol
- Failure to control speed
- Unsafe lane changes
- Following other vehicles too closely
Any one of these examples may be considered negligent or reckless driving behavior. Individuals who drive while intoxicated or distracted, or drive dangerously and recklessly on the road, may be held at fault for an accident they cause. It may not be enough to rely on driver insurance to cover the damages—if you suffer catastrophic injuries, you may be left with a heavy financial burden for years after an accident.
