Causes of Car Accidents

The causes of a car accident are just as important, if not more so, than the outcome of the collision. Understanding the details of the type of car accident that occurred can help prove liability. In particular, it will hopefully help you reduce your own liability and maximize the recovery you can collect from the other parties involved.

What or Who Caused Your Car Accident?
You may know you did not cause your car accident, but no one else knows for certain. Being able to show the cause is related to the actions of another driver or the negligence of a third party can prove your point.
Common causes of car accidents include:
- Texting while driving
- Head-on crashes
- Rear-end collisions
- Auto part defects
- Talking to passengers
- Failure to understand traffic signs
- Bad weather conditions
- Other driver distractions, like eating or grooming
- General driver negligence
Our Augusta car accident attorneys can get into the finest details of your car accident claim to determine the cause. Any sort of negligence or failure on behalf of a third party should strip liability from you, which in turn increases the damages you can collect through a successful verdict or settlement.
Highlighting the Cause of Your Car Accident
After you get into a traffic collision of any kind, you should immediately start thinking about how to determine the cause and later prove it for your claim. Use photographs to document the entire crash, including all vehicles, injuries, and environmental factors in the pictures. You should also talk to any passersby or drivers who stopped to help. They may be able to give you useful testimonies of what they witnessed. Do not forget to ask for copies of official statements from police officers, firefighters, and emergency medical technicians who may have been called to the scene.
