What Are the Common Causes of Car Accidents?

The South Carolina Department of Public Safety estimates there is an auto collision in the state every 3½ minutes, and at least one person dies every 8 hours. Sadly, the vast majority of these collisions are entirely preventable. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that at least 94 percent of crashes nationwide result from driver error, such as:

  • Distracted driving
  • Impaired driving
  • Driving while fatigued or drowsy
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Improper lane changes
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Reckless or aggressive driving

Inclement weather conditions and manufacturer defects can also contribute to causing car accidents.
