Most Common Causes Of Buffalo, New York Car Accidents

Every year, there are thousands of car crashes in Western New York. Traffic accidents tend to happen for various reasons. Nevertheless, there are specific factors that contribute to collisions more frequently than others. Some common causes of car crashes in Western New York include:

    Woman using makeup while driving
  1. Distracted Driving: Driving safely requires complete concentration. Inattentive drivers who take their eyes off the road are much more likely to cause an accident. Anything that takes a driver’s total focus away from driving can play a part in crashing. Texting or talking on a smartphone, tinkering with a GPS, applying makeup, frequently changing the music, eating behind the wheel, attending to small children, or even daydreaming are all examples of distractions that can cause collisions.
  2. Driving Under the Influence: Driving while on drugs, using certain prescription medications, or under the influence of alcohol is a recipe for disaster. These substances can drastically impair a driver’s coordination, reaction time, reflexes, and overall awareness. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2016, 10,497 victims suffered fatalities in alcohol-related driving accidents.
  3. Bad Weather Conditions: Inclement weather, such as rain, snow, and ice, can make roads dangerous. It can be harder to navigate a vehicle and much easier to lose control. Also, heavy rainfall, snowfall, and fog can significantly hamper visibility.
  4. Aggressive Driving: Some drivers always seem to be in a hurry. Aggressive or reckless driving behaviors drastically increase the risk of accidents and resulting injuries. Speeding, tailgating, deliberately accelerating as the light is turning red, making illegal left turns, erratic driving, or assuming the right of way are all various forms of aggressive driving and make roadways dangerous for everyone.
  5. Fatigued Driving: Driving after staying awake for 18 hours is equivalent to driving with a blood alcohol concertation of .05 percent. Research conducted by the CDC shows that drowsy driving can cause drivers to pay less attention to the road, slows their reaction time down, and affects the brain’s overall decision-making process.



Proving The Other Driver Is Responsible For Your Accident

Most car accidents could easily be prevented if motorists drove more cautiously and avoided the above common causes. If you were a victim of a car accident, do not be afraid to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney to learn more about all of your legal options. Other motorists should be held liable for any accidents that they cause. Negligence in one form or another causes almost every car crash. Victims commonly rely on the legal theory of negligence to establish the other driver’s liability. The Dietrich Law Firm P.C. will establish liability for your injuries by showing the following:

  1. Duty of Care: The other motorist owed you a duty of care to drive as a reasonably careful driver would have under similar conditions. Every driver assumes a legal responsibility to exercise caution and reasonable care, which includes taking all necessary precautions and driving safely.
  2. Breach of Duty: Drivers can be found negligent for irresponsible driving, such as speeding or running a red light. Moreover, drivers can also be negligent for neglecting to take action when they should have, such as driving at night without turning on their headlights.
  3. Causation: The breach of duty of care was the direct cause of your injuries and other damages. You must show that “but for” the defendant’s act, you would not have been harmed.
  4. Damages: You suffered actual injuries or other damages as a result of the crash, such as hospital bills, lost wages, or property damage.
