Posted by Siamak Vaziri | Jun 10, 2022 | 0 Comments


After being in a car accident, many people tend to wonder if they could have done anything to prevent it. Accidents happen in an instant and unexpectedly. Also, they generally cause economic loss, stress, and different types of injuries. Unfortunately, thousands of people die each year in the United States, and car accidents are the leading cause of death among the adolescent population.

According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) research, between 94 and 96 percent of car accidents occur due to human error. The saddest thing about these situations is that many of these accidents could have been avoided.

Here are some of the most common accidents our California car accident lawyers assist with and what you can do to avoid them.

  • Speeding accidents. Speed ​​limits on roads and highways exist for a reason, and these are set according to road conditions, amount of traffic, and a few other factors. However, speeding causes more than 25% of fatal accidents in the country each year. Therefore, it is crucial to obey the speed limits and stay alert to other drivers, especially at freeway entrances, exits, and intersections.
  • Distracted driving. According to data provided by the NHTSA, in 2019, approximately 3,142 people died in car accidents where one of the drivers was driving distracted. This is also one of the leading causes of car accidents in general. Talking on the phone, texting, eating, talking to passengers, and even driving while tired are common behaviors that distract people from driving. So when you get in your car, focus on the road and put away your cell phone; You will be taking care of your safety as well as the safety of others.
  • Drunk driving. Unfortunately, alcohol has always been one of the main causes of car accidents. Every 52 minutes, a fatal accident occurs due to drivers being under the influence of alcohol, and in a year, more than 100,000 people die for this reason. Drinking and driving is one of the most negligent behaviors a person can engage in, and each year, these accidents represent costs of more than 44 billion dollars. If you plan to drink alcohol, don't drive, have a sober person drive you home or call a taxi, Uber, or Lyft. You could not only be saving your life but the lives of others too.
