Most Common Causes of Automobile Accidents
Crashes involving vehicles can come about for a number of different reasons. The most tragic aspect about these accidents is that they would usually be preventable, were it not for the drivers’ negligence.

- Driving while being distracted

- Driving down the wrong way
- Punctured tires
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI)
- Speeding or racing
- Failing to yield to the party with the right of way
- Dangerous weather conditions
- Poor road conditions (such as potholes, roots, or cracks in the asphalt)
What to Do After a Car Accident
The first thing to do after an accident is make sure you and any other people involved in the crash are safe from further harm. This means getting to the side of the road and trying to calmly call 911. Only after you are certain you and other members of the crash are out of immediate harm’s way should you begin to document the events.
Directly after a crash, victims are often onset with whiplash and confusion, or even lack of memory. It is perfectly understandable that you might not know what caused the crash. Therefore, the more pictures and videos you can take, the easier it will be to establish how the opposite car could have been negligent in causing the crash. Get the names, insurance numbers, and contact information of the other car driver as well as any witnesses. This can be crucial in establishing fault so you can claim compensation.
Devoted to Your Compensation
Here at Cofer & Connelly, PLLC, we are determined to get you fair recompense for all the pain and suffering you have undergone. The other car driver most likely did not mean to cause an accident, but you should not have to pay the consequences for their negligence.
