Factors that Contribute to Auto Accidents

 

Auto accidents can be caused by any number of reasons, and many of them result in one or more fatalities. In 2010 there was an estimated 30,200 auto related deaths in the U.S. and over 80% of them can be contributed to distracted drivers. Other injuries that can be received in auto accidents are spinal injury, loss of limb, head injury, broken bones, and paraplegia. Though auto accidents are also frequently caused by road and weather conditions, here are some of the leading causes of accidents that are related to driver negligence:

 

·         Distracted drivers. One of the number one causes of distracted driver's is illegal cell phone use. These types of accidents account for 80% of all traffic accidents. Making phone calls and text messages are illegal while driving. Other types of distracted driving include applying makeup, eating while driving, or changing stations or CD's on the radio.

 

·         Traffic Law Infractions. These types of accidents are related to speeding, following too closely, failure to yield and improper lane changes. Often speeding and other types of infractions are being committed by the same driver at once.

 

·         Driver Error. These types of accidents are often closely related to driving distracted. Fatigue, sleepiness, eating while driving and illegal cell phone use are all driver errors that can lead to life altering auto accidents.

 

·         Equipment Malfunction. These types of accidents occur when necessary equipment for the driver to maintain of control of the vehicle fail, such as brakes, steering, tires or suspension. These accidents can either be the fault of the driver, or of a mechanic who recently worked on the vehicle.
