Do You Have A Truck Accident Case?
While every accident is unique in what caused the event, there are several common causes:
1. Distracted Driving: Distracted driving is becoming one of the leading causes of auto accidents. In most cases, the driver is distracted by their cell phone. However, distractions can also occur when the driver is using the radio or GPS, is looking for something in the car seat next to them, is avidly talking with passengers, or is looking at something on the side of the road. See Connecticut General Statutes for Laws on Cell Phone Use While Driving Sec. 14-296aa.
2. Unsafe Road Conditions: Road conditions can change quickly with the New England weather and lead to driver error. Also, construction zones and traffic jams, notorious on I-84 and I-95, can also lead to unsafe road conditions and accidents.
3. Driving Under The Influence: Drivers who have been consuming alcohol or other substances can be very dangerous on the road. Decision making and response skills are often slowed, and drivers’ judgment can be impaired. A lot of accidents occur when one driver is under the influence.
4. Reckless Driving: The driver of the other car may have acted recklessly while driving. This could include weaving in and out of traffic, excessive speeds, not obeying traffic signals or even dangerous turns.
5. Malfunctioning Equipment: Sometimes an accident occurs due to a manufacturers defect in the automobile such as a defective airbag, an ignition switch problem as seen with GM, and a host of other possible issues including brake, engine and seatbelt problems.
