They happen in any kind of weather, although bad weather causes more accidents than nice weather. There can be accidents because of a faulty part in a car or a bad driver. For whatever reason the accident occurs, it is important to know that you can find a lawyer to represent you with your case if you are injured in a car accident. The Number One Reason for Car Accidents is a Distracted Driver Distracted drivers cause many accidents. They may being talking on a phone, texting, listening to the radio or doing something else like reading that may take their eyes off of the road. Even having the radio on to loud may be the result of a distracted driver and can cause an accident. Make sure that when you are driving you are paying attention to the road at all times. Drinking Or Using Drugs and Driving is another Big Cause of Car Accidents When you drink, you lose your ability to drive properly. It is important to not drink and drive. If you are planning to go out and imbibe, have a designated driver. Never drive while taking prescription or illegal drugs. This also impairs the ability to drive normally. You become a problem on the road for other drivers when you can’t think properly about what needs to be done when you are driving.
