Protect against these common causes of car accidents

Since you never want to be part of a car accident, it's important to take as many steps as possible to prevent trouble on the road. This all starts with understanding the most common causes of car accidents.

Here are seven causes that continue to lead to accidents throughout the country:

  • Distracted driving: This takes on many forms, such as texting, talking on the phone and eating.
  • Drunk driving: When a person is under the influence, they don't have the judgment and reaction time necessary to avoid trouble.
  • Speeding: There is a speed limit for a reason. Driving in excess of the speed limit increases the risk of an accident.
  • Reckless driving: Common types of reckless driving include excessive speeding, illegal passing and failure to yield.
  • Inclement weather: Rain, snow, ice and wind all increase the risk of an accident.
  • Traffic: When traffic conditions change, such as during rush hour, every driver must adjust their approach. For example, leaving more following space in a traffic jam can help prevent an accident.
  • Nighttime driving: It's more difficult to see when driving at night, which increases the risk of an accident. This is also when the highest concentration of drunk drivers is on the road.

Even as you protect against these common causes of car accidents, another driver may not do the same.

If someone strikes your vehicle, don't worry about anything but your health and well-being. After you receive treatment, you can then read the police report, file an insurance claim and make a list of things you can do to hold the negligent driver responsible.
