What Are the Most Common Causes of Car Accidents?

Most car accidents are due to negligent or reckless drivers.

Some of the most common causes of car crashes include:

  • Speeding or driving too fast for conditions
  • Tailgating or following too closely
  • Reckless driving, such as racing, excessive speeding, or swerving in and out of traffic
  • Aggressive driving or road rage
  • Distracted driving, including cell phone use while driving, eating or drinking, grooming or applying makeup, adjusting the radio or climate control, or even turning to talk to other passengers
  • Drowsy or fatigued driving
  • Drunk or drugged driving
  • Inexperienced drivers
  • Running red lights or stop signs, or otherwise disregarding traffic controls
  • Unsafe turns or lane changes, including failing to signal or check mirrors and blind spots
  • Inadequate maintenance
  • Defective vehicles or auto parts
  • Poor road conditions or unsafe road/highway designs
  • Adverse weather
  • Low lighting or nighttime driving

Common Car Accident Injuries

Drivers and passengers can suffer a wide variety of physical injuries from a car accident. 

Examples of injuries frequently suffered by car accident victims include:

  • Lacerations, abrasions, and bruising
  • Burns
  • Dislocated joints
  • Broken bones
  • Strains and sprains
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Internal injuries and bleeding
  • Head and facial injuries
  • Chest injuries
  • Crush injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Traumatic amputations

What Types of Compensation Are Available for a Car Accident Claim?

After an accident, you may be entitled to recover compensation for the expenses and losses that you have incurred. 

This compensation could include:

  • Costs of medical treatments, including visits to the ER or hospital, surgeries, doctor’s appointments, physical therapy, prescriptions, and medical equipment
  • Costs of long-term care required for disabilities that result from your injuries
  • Loss of wages or income after missing time from work following the accident
  • Loss of earning capacity if you have been disabled from performing gainful employment
  • Physical pain and anguish
  • Emotional trauma and distress
  • Loss of enjoyment and quality of life due to scarring/disfigurement or due to disabilities interfering with daily living or participation in activities you previously enjoyed
  • Costs to repair your car or the value of your vehicle if it was totaled in the accident, along with repair or replacement costs for other property of yours that was damaged or destroyed in the accident

How Long Do You Have to File an Accident Claim in Texas?

In Texas, the statute of limitations on car accident claims typically provides you only two years after a collision to file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver and other liable parties.

If you file a car accident lawsuit after the statute of limitations has expired, the court will almost certainly dismiss your case, and you will lose the right to pursue financial recovery from those responsible for the accident and your injuries. That makes it crucial to speak to a lawyer as soon as possible.
