Common Causes of Car Accidents in Frederick

Understanding car accident risks is essential to avoiding car crashes. There are risks to both drivers and pedestrians when cars are operated on roads. Knowing about common causes of crashes could prove hugely beneficial for ensuring drivers take greater precautions when behind the wheel. Car accidents vary in severity and cause, but in many cases, they are avoidable. The leading causes of car accidents include:

Drunk driving: Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs can impair judgment and lead to dangerous scenarios on the road.

Distracted driving: Texting or talking on the phone while driving can lead to serious consequences as it impairs concentration and diverts alertness to your surroundings.

Speeding: Too often, drivers attempt to beat the traffic by going over the speed limit. This increases the risk of an accident due. Additionally, the increased momentum from speeding can decrease your ability to react in time.

Weather Conditions: Poor weather conditions, like rain and snow, can make visibility more difficult and cause roads to become slick. High speeds and poor road conditions can increase the risk of skidding and losing control of one's vehicle.

Additional factors that can lead to car accidents include mechanical problems or driver fatigue. Driver fatigue is especially dangerous because it impairs a driver's decision-making and reaction time. Mechanical problems can also cause vehicles to malfunction or fail to respond correctly, leading to an increased risk of collision.

Common Car Accident Injuries

Injuries sustained from car accidents vary greatly depending on the severity of the crash. Common types of injuries range from broken bones to whiplash, burns, or lacerations. Even if you feel fine after a car accident, it’s important to be checked by a medical professional, as symptoms of injury can appear several hours after a collision.

Car accident injuries range in severity. Injuries can include:

  • Amputation
  • Brain damage
  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Cervical strain
  • Death
  • Internal injuries
  • Neck, shoulder, or back injury
