What are the Factors Contributing to Car Accidents and Injury

Answer: Most automobile accidents are usually caused by driver error.

The primary factors that cause car accidents include:

  • Driver error. If more drivers didn’t try to get where they are going quite so fast or didn’t drive so aggressively or carelessly, there would be fewer accidents. More Missouri and Illinois accidents are caused by driving too fast for conditions than any driver violation.
  • Defectively manufactured. Manufacturer-installed parts such as safety belts, brake devices, tires, and other vehicle components have all been implicated as factors in allowing injuries to become more severe than they might have been.
  • Poor mechanical work. Car accidents may also be caused by poor mechanical work. For example, shortly after a tire change, a tire falls off, and the driver loses control of the vehicle. The garage doing the work could be held liable for any property damage or personal injury caused-both to you and any other party.
  • Poorly maintained or designed roadways and intersections. Motor vehicle accidents may be caused by poorly maintained roads and poor road design. This can include banking the road so centripetal force works against the vehicle, even at speeds that would normally be expected.
