Driver Negligence

Driver negligence is involved in the majority of motor vehicle accidents. If another driver’s negligence caused your accident, you can recover compensation for the harm that they caused you. Common examples of driver negligence that can cause a serious or fatal accident include:

  • Distracted driving, such as texting
  • Speeding or driving too fast for the weather or road conditions
  • Running a red light or a stop sign
  • Failure to yield
  • Failure to use turn signal
  • Unsafe passing
  • Intoxication
  • Tailgating
  • Aggressive driving

If You Were Partly to Blame

Motor vehicle accidents are rarely straightforward events with a clear line where one driver’s actions were perfect and the other driver was the only one to make a mistake. Even if you were partly to blame for your accident, you can recover compensation as long as your were less than 50% to blame. Your compensation will be reduced by your portion of fault, so if you were 10% to blame for your accident, and your damages were $500,000, you could still receive $450,000.

Other Common Causes of Car and Truck Accidents

Sometimes there is no at-fault driver because the accident was a result of a defective vehicle or a defective roadway.

Defective vehicle accidents fall under product liability and defendants can include:

  • Auto manufacturer
  • Part manufacturer
  • New or used car dealership
  • Part seller
  • Vehicle shipper
  • Repair shop
  • Rental company

When a roadway defect causes and accident the government entity responsible for the design, construction, and/or maintenance of the roadway is normally held responsible.
