Injured in a Virginia Car Wreck? Talk to an Experienced Attorney

Car accidents happen every day.  In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), automobile accidents injured 2.3 million people in the United States in 2014.   In 2015, automobile accidents killed 35,200 people in the United States. These 2015 numbers represent a nearly 8% increase in traffic fatalities over 2014.  What causes these devastating traffic accidents?

Distracted Driving

Drivers not paying attention to their driving is one of the leading causes of traffic accidents.   This includes drivers eating, putting on makeup, talking on their cell phone, texting and checking email messages instead of keeping their eyes on the road.  

Drunk Driving

Drinking impairs a driver’s ability to judge distances, brake properly, maintain focus and keep control of a motor vehicle.   Rural areas often have higher rates of drunk driving accidents because there are few cab companies and fewer public transportation options.

Speeding

Drivers who ignore the speed limit put themselves and others at risk.  The faster a car travels, the less time the driver has to react to situations that arise on the road.  This includes avoiding obstacles, pedestrians and other vehicles that suddenly appear.  

Bad Weather

Too many drivers think that weather conditions have little effect on the roads, but ice, fog, rain and snow make these strips of asphalt dangerous places.  During inclement weather, drivers face reduced visibility, standing water, slick surfaces, narrowing roads and more.  Some drivers drive too slowly in bad weather and risk being rear ended.  Others drive too fast and risk hitting other drivers or spinning out of control when they hit a slick spot in the road.
