Everybody makes mistakes, but the consequences of those mistakes can be elevated when a vehicle collision is involved. The personal injury lawyers at Nagle & Associates, PA in Winston-Salem, NC, know that it’s important to consider which mistakes can cause car accidents, so you and others can stay safe on the road. This firm’s car accident lawyers represent individuals who have serious personal injury claims statewide, and they know how serious collisions can be.
Speeding causes high-impact crashes and severe damage, so it’s wise to drive under or at the speed limit with the flow of traffic. Even when driving within the speed limit, going too fast for conditions such as rain or fog can cause accidents. Water on the road surface often results in hydroplaning and loss of vehicle control, and fog prevents drivers from seeing a vehicle or object in time to stop.
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a major and often deadly mistake. Personal injury lawyers know that just a small amount of an intoxicating substance can make you a less safe driver. Driving while drowsy also leads to accidents, so get enough rest before getting on the road and take frequent stretch breaks to stay alert.
Distracted driving is also a significant cause of accidents on the road. This term can mean anything involving taking your eyes off of the road, including texting, talking on the phone, or eating. Even a few seconds is enough time to miss seeing a pedestrian or another driver’s unexpected movement.
