Causes of Phoenix Auto Accidents
Being involved in a car collision can be a frightening moment for anyone, one of the first things a victim will do though is figure out what caused the crash to happen. When a driver is negligent behind the wheel they are more likely to cause a collision than one who is experienced and has mastered defensive driving techniques.
Some common causes of accidents include:
- Driving Under the Influence
- Reckless Driving
- Driving While Fatigued
- Inexperienced Driver
- Texting & Driving
- Failing to Yield
- Bad Weather Conditions
- Disobeying Traffic Signs & Signals
Poor vehicle maintenance and defective motor vehicle parts are some additional causes of car wrecks. When a manufacturer fails to recall a device or problem with a vehicle it can lead to dangerous situations for the driver of the vehicle and the motorists in their path.
Types of Car Collisions
Many factors are considered when an accident happens such as the velocity both drivers were traveling and the vehicles involved in the collision. These factors are often factored in as they can all cause a certain type of crash. For example an SUV that was speeding is more likely to rollover during a crash compared to a standard vehicle.
Some common types of car accidents include:
- Rear-End Accidents
- Hit & Run
- Head-On Collisions
- Multi-Vehicle Wrecks
- T-Bone/Side-Impact Crash
Furthermore, some collisions only involve the vehicle colliding with a fixed-object such as a lamp post or tree which is primarily caused when one vehicle swerves to avoid hitting another object or car.
Common Auto Accident Injuries
According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, in Phoenix more than 15,800 persons were reportedly injured in motor vehicle accidents in 2011.
Some common auto accident injuries include:
- Broken Bones
- Spinal Cord Injury/Paralysis
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Internal Organ Damage
Furthermore, according to the AZDOT data the number of persons injured in a collision was greater than the number of actual accidents reported. Such information could presume that drivers and passengers commonly sustained injuries during a Phoenix auto accident.
