Common Causes of Car Accidents

Sadly, most car accidents are due to driver negligence. Driver negligence may include:

  • Impaired driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Failing to yield
  • Tailgating
  • Violating traffic laws
  • Drowsy driving
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Road rage
  • Poorly maintained vehicles
  • Unsecured loads

Sometimes, dangerous roads or mechanical failure are responsible for car accidents. When dangerous roads cause car accidents, financial responsibility may lie with a government entity. A parts manufacturer may incur liability for an accident resulting from a defective vehicle part.

Types of Car Accident Injuries

The best-known car accident injury is whiplash. This is the sudden movement of the head and neck in a back and forth in a whiplike motion. Whiplash may last a few days or even weeks. Other potential car accident injuries are:

  • Concussions and traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Loss of limbs
  • Arm and leg injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Damage to internal organs
  • Eye injuries
  • Chest injuries
  • Torn ligaments
  • Paralysis

Many of these injuries need multiple, costly medical treatments, like physical therapy and rehabilitation. Others cause lifelong injuries and chronic pain.

Compensation for Car Accidents

Car accident compensation falls in one of two categories, economic or non-economic. Economic damages are calculable damages and include items like:

  • Hospitalization
  • Rehabilitation
  • Prescription drugs
  • Surgery
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future income

Non-economic damages are more challenging to place a monetary value on and may include:

  • Pain and suffering
