Common Causes of Car Accidents

There are many possible causes for car accidents in Connecticut, but some of the more common factors include:

  • drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • drivers who are tired or distracted
  • poor visibility or other adverse weather conditions
  • objects on the road or badly maintained roads
  • tire blowouts or mechanical failures

Most accidents are preventable through conscientious driving and safe habits, but a car accident that is the result of negligence or recklessness of another driver may entitle you to compensation.

Connecticut Car Accidents

Distracted driving is on the rise, and it includes anything that takes the driver’s attention from the road. Common examples are texting or talking on a cell phone, applying makeup, eating or drinking, changing the radio station, or looking at GPS.

Other causes of Connecticut car accidents include driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, speeding, aggressive driving, or even driving while too tired. The choice to get behind the wheel in any of these situations can have deadly consequences, and the person who does so is responsible for any harm that comes from that choice.
