Common causes of car accidents in Houston
Most automobile accident causes fall into one of the following three categories:
- Driver-related causes – Crashes that occur due to driver action, inaction, negligence, or recklessness
- Vehicle-related causes – Accidents that occur because a vehicle or vehicle part malfunctions, fails, or is not used properly
- Environmental causes – Collisions that result from dangerous roadways (icy, full of trash/debris, poorly lit, etc.), weather, or other hazardous conditions
Often, many factors play a role in why a car accident occurs.
