Common Causes Of Car Accidents In Connecticut
The most common cause of car collisions is driver distraction, even more so in the current age of electronic devices. Drivers who text while driving, use cellular devices, talk to passengers, eat or engage in other distractions that take attention off the road account for many accidents.
Sadly, drunk drivers also cause many auto accidents with major injuries or fatalities. Other causes of car accidents include:
- Poor driver visibility
- Bad road conditions
- Speeding or the failure to follow traffic laws such as:
- Driver fatigue
- Tire blowout or mechanical failure
Car owners carry insurance to cover the costs of medical expenses and property damage in case of an accident, but an insurance claim may be insufficient to cover the amount of injury and suffering for the victim.
An accident caused by the negligent, reckless or careless actions of another driver may entitle the victim to monetary compensation that can include the following:
- Loss of earnings
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Long-term care
- Death benefits
Speak with an experienced personal injury attorney with McCoy & McCoy before agreeing to an insurance settlement claim.
Insurance companies often make less of injuries and attempt to settle for as little as possible. You may forfeit your right to additional compensation by signing a settlement of claim without consulting a lawyer first.
