Causes of Fatal Car Crashes

Car accidents can become fatal for a variety of reasons. Often, a number of different factors lead to serious, fatal accidents. When negligence is the root cause of an accident that results in the death of your loved one, our firm can help you hold the responsible parties accountable.

Some of the most common causes of fatal car accidents include:

  • Speeding
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Distracted driving, including cell phone use/texting
  • Lack of proper safety precautions
  • Illegal or unsafe driving maneuvers
  • Dangerous left-hand turns
  • Reckless driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Defective automobile parts

Fatal wrecks can also be caused by slick roads, careless driving, and vehicle malfunctions. The size of the vehicles involved in the wreck, as well as the speed at which they were traveling, can also contribute to its severity.

Proving Wrongful Death After an Accident

The family and direct descendants of someone killed in a car accident may seek compensation for the pain and suffering of the deceased prior to death, pain and suffering of the deceased’s loved ones, as well as loss of companionship and economic hardship or loss of income. In order to be compensated for these things, the defendant must prove that the other driver involved in the accident behaved negligently and that that negligence directly contributed to the death of their loved one. Once this has been done, legal guidance can help quantify the damages suffered to get a clear picture of what the damages paid should be.

We understand that no amount of money will bring your loved one back, but it can bring justice and help to ease the financial burden placed on your family.
