Unsafe left turn: One of the most common collisions is an unsafe left turn. In most cases, the driver tries to turn left across the stream when they do not have enough time to wait for the passage to clear to avoid a collision.
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs: When a driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs, his judgment is not clear, which increases the risk of a car accident. When a driver, being in a state of alcoholic intoxication, becomes the culprit of an accident, he may be financially liable for the victim's losses. If both participants in the accident were drunk and caused an accident, then this would be tantamount to negligence.
Distracted Driving: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) defines distraction as any activity that causes drivers to take their eyes off the road, their hands off the wheel, or shift their focus away from driving. These distractions include eating, drinking, grooming, using a cell phone, fiddling with the radio or GPS, talking to a passenger, keeping a pet in the car without a leash, and others.
Sleepy driving: Not many drivers realize that they are careless when driving tired or sleepy. Tiring driving can lead to catastrophic or even fatal accidents. Drowsy driving affects your ability to drive safely as attention, reaction time, and the ability to make good decisions can be severely impaired. Sleepy driving is equivalent to careless driving, and tired drivers can be held liable for the car accidents they cause.
Violation of traffic rules: All drivers are required to comply with traffic rules, including stopping at red lights and stop signals, giving way to other vehicles and pedestrians, making safe turns and changing lanes, observing speed limits, and so on. When drivers knowingly or unintentionally violate these rules and cause an accident, they can be financially liable for their injuries and losses.
