Auto accidents can be attributed to a wide variety of causes. Our accident lawyers frequently investigate wrecks with causes that include:
–Northwest Arkansas already has laws banning several driving distractions, such as texting while driving or talking on a cell phone behind the wheel.
Defective car parts
–Faulty vehicle parts, such as seat belts, accelerator controls, wiring, wheels, tire blowouts, and brake failures can lead to violent and often fatal car accidents.
Poor road conditions
–Uneven pavement or potholes can cause deadly crashes and life-threatening injuries to motorists. Other threats include foreign obstacles or substances on the road surface. These can cause drivers to swerve suddenly or to overcorrect the vehicle as they try to regain control.
–Driving at speeds exceeding safe conditions based on the weather, road conditions, traffic or the speed of surrounding motorists frequently causes auto accidents.
Inadequate road design
–Some roads are notorious for being accident “black spots” for many reasons, including alignment, visibility, surface conditions, and road markings.
