Common Causes of Fresno Car Accidents

Millions of serious car accidents occur every year. Reports suggest that teenagers and minors lead in fatalities, but there is no denying that anyone of any age can be seriously injured, debilitated, or wrongfully killed in a car accident.In order to protect your well-being while operating a motor vehicle in California, we encourage you to have a better understanding of what causes most car accidents. By being familiar with the common causes, you can also learn how to avoid some of the most severe injuries imaginable as well as understand causes cited in personal injury claims.

Distracted Driving

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, distracted driving is the top contributor to car accidents and fatalities. With the rise in mobile technology and vehicular advancements, more and more drivers are operating their cars with constant distractions. It only takes a second for an accident to occur, and oftentimes, it is in the moment that a driver takes his or her eyes away from the road that a serious collision occurs.

Examples of distracted driving can include:

  • Texting or emailing while driving
  • Talking on a handheld mobile device
  • Changing the radio station
  • Personal grooming
  • Reading
  • Eating
  • Talking to other passengers in the car
  • Using GPS or other devices

Distracted driving is much more than just negligent behavior. In some cases, distracted driving can be deadly. Not only can distracted driving put innocent motorists and pedestrians on the road in the direct line of danger, but distracted drivers put their own lives at risk at well.

Other Causes of Car Accidents

Although driver negligence causes most car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, pedestrian accidents, and other types of collisions involving motor vehicles, irresponsible driving is not the only cause of car crashes.

Other factors include:

  • Reckless, dangerous, or aggressive driving
  • Failure to adhere to state traffic laws and safe driving regulations
  • Drunk driving
  • Drowsy driving
  • Inclement weather
  • Bad road conditions
  • Poor lighting at dawn or dusk or poorly lit highways
  • Vehicle malfunction
