What Are the Most Common Causes of Car Accidents?

The leading cause of auto wrecks in Colorado (as well as across the U.S.) is motorist errors. In fact, according to the latest findings,1 driver errors are the primary cause of about 94 percent of all auto crashes. These errors include (and are not limited to):

  • Recognition errors, accounting for about 41 percent of motorists’ mistakes – Failing to monitor the road and traffic conditions is a common example of a motorist recognition error.
  • Decision errors, accounting for about 33 percent of drivers’ mistakes – These can include speeding, misjudging the speed of other vehicles and making illegal maneuvers (like an illegal U-turn or running a red light).
  • Performance errors, accounting for about 11 percent of motorists’ mistakes – Oversteering and failing to step on the brakes when needed are some examples of these types of driver errors.

In many cases, these errors are caused by factors like (but not restricted to):

  • Driver impairment, such as drunk driving, drugged driving or driving while fatigued
  • Driver distraction, like use of cellphones or wireless devices while driving
  • Driver inexperience, which tends to be factor with newly licensed teen motorists.

Along with motorist-related factors, other factors that can contribute to car accidents include (and are not limited to):

  • Vehicle-related factors, such as faulty automotive equipment and dangerous vehicle design
  • Road-related factors, like malfunctioning traffic signals and debris in the road
  • Environmental factors, such as adverse weather.

In some cases, crashes can be caused by a number of different factors, like motorist errors in addition to one or more of the above factors.


What Should I Do after a Car Accident?

If an auto crash has not rendered you unconscious or unable to move, here are the most important things to do in the immediate aftermath:

  1. Call police and wait at the scene for them to arrive.
  2. Get medical attention (either at the scene or as soon as possible after you leave the accident scene).
  3. Exchange driver, vehicle and insurance information with the other involved party (or parties).
  4. Get the name(s) and contact information for any witness(es).
  5. Take extensive photos of the damage, any visible injuries and the greater accident scene.
  6. Report the facts of the wreck to your insurance provider.
  7. Contact a lawyer at Gradisar, Trechter, Ripperger & Roth.

Our experienced attorneys can help you deal with insurance companies, gather all evidence essential to your claim and help you set your case up for a successful outcome.


Am I Entitled to Compensation for My Car Accident?

The causes of your crash will determine whether you are eligible for compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, damaged property, pain and suffering.

While our attorneys can provide you with a clear, specific answer to this question, in general, crash victims in Colorado CAN be entitled to compensation IF some other party’s negligence was the primary cause of the wreck. Essentially, this means that car accident victims can seek compensation if another driver (and/or some other party) was primarily responsible for causing the wreck.
