Causes of Accidents in Coral Gables

Why Accidents Occur

Causes of Accidents

Car accidents are the most common causes of injuries and can result in serious injuries such as broken bones, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and neck injuries. Vehicle accidents are often caused by a driver's negligent, careless or reckless acts, such as:

  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Inattentive driving
  • Violating traffic safety laws

Accidents can also be caused by defective auto parts, improperly marked road hazards and poorly maintained highways and streets. Other forms of accidents can include those caused by other negligent actions, such as dog bites, dangerous drugs, slip and falls or workplace accidents. When a person is injured in an accident that wasn't their fault, they are often eligible for personal injury compensation. A claim is filed with the person's insurance carrier with information regarding the negligent actions that caused the accident, as well as medical evidence documenting the extent of your injuries and how they have impacted your life.
