Causes of collisions for which you may need a DC car accident lawyer
Any number of factors can cause an auto accident, either solely or in combination. But when negligence plays a part in an accident and injury occurs, victims can seek compensation by speaking with auto accident lawyers in Washington, D.C. like Joel Finkelstein. Auto accidents are dangerous for drivers, passengers, and pedestrians alike.
The following are common negligent behaviors that can lead to accidents. Washington auto accident lawyers can help you understand the laws regarding:
- Distracted driving. Whether it is adjusting music, programming a GPS device, operating a mobile phone, paying attention to children or other passengers, or observing scenery or another accident, any act that diverts attention from the road automatically puts a driver at risk for causing a collision.
- Driving while fatigued. Drivers who are extremely tired can miss signs, forget to signal, or even fall asleep behind the wheel.
- DUI/DWI. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is not only considered negligence but is a criminal offense as well.
- Excessive speeding or the failure to obey traffic laws. Breaking traffic laws is negligent and endangers others.
- Aggressive driving behaviors. Such behaviors as tailgating, excessively flashing high beams, disregarding traffic signals, weaving in and out of lanes, or failing to yield the right of way endanger the lives of everyone on the road.
- Failing to make adjustments for inclement weather. Snow, rain, ice, hail, high winds, or heavy fog can limit visibility and make vehicles more difficult to control. Not adjusting to these conditions is irresponsible and dangerous.
