Car accidents can occur due to many different circumstances

Car accidents are unfortunately common. Most North Carolina residents have been involved in vehicle collisions either as drivers or passengers and most likely emerged from their ordeals with minimal injuries. Sadly, other car accidents are incredibly serious and may cause life-threatening injuries and even deaths. The causes of car accidents stem from several different types of events.

One major cause of car accidents is the failure of drivers to give their attention to the road. Accidents from this category occur when drivers are distracted while behind the wheel or too tired to stay awake while driving. Drivers who allow exhaustion and distraction to take their attention away from driving are negligent and may be held accountable for the harm they cause to others.

Another category of car accidents are caused by recklessly dangerous drivers. While distracted and tired drivers may not intend to be harmful to others, reckless and drunk drivers presumably do not care that their actions could inflict suffering on others. Dangerous drivers exercise disregard for the safety of others and are hazardous to motorists that must share the roads with them.

Finally, other car accidents are caused by external factors such as rain, ice, road debris or road defects. Drivers must be aware of these conditions, and when they fail to factor in hazards outside of their control, they may create dangers for themselves and other drivers. Whether their collisions are caused by negligent drivers, reckless drivers, or roadway hazards, motor vehicle accident victims can explore their legal options for recovery with personal injury attorneys who advocate for their rights.
