Common Causes of Fatal Car Accidents

Fatal car accidents can occur under various circumstances, often due to the negligence or recklessness of one or more drivers. Understanding these common causes can help in preventing future tragedies and is crucial in legal proceedings.

  • Distracted Driving: Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of fatal car accidents. Activities like texting, talking on the phone, eating, or using in-car technologies can divert the driver's attention from the road, leading to catastrophic outcomes.
  • Driving Under the Influence: Alcohol and drug impairment significantly reduce a driver's capability to make sound decisions and react fast to changing road conditions. Driving under the influence remains a major contributor to deadly car crashes.
  • Speeding: Excessive speed reduces the driver's control over the vehicle and increases the severity of accidents. Speeding is particularly dangerous on highways and in areas with high pedestrian traffic, with a higher potential for fatalities.
  • Reckless Driving: Aggressive behaviors such as tailgating, weaving through traffic, and ignoring traffic signals put everyone on the road at risk. Reckless driving is a common factor in many fatal car accidents.
  • Weather Conditions: Unfavorable weather conditions like rain, fog, snow, and ice can make driving treacherous. Drivers who fail to adapt their driving to the weather conditions are more likely to cause serious accidents.
  • Vehicle Defects: Sometimes, fatal accidents are caused by mechanical failures or defects in the vehicle, like brake failures, tire blowouts, or faulty airbags. Manufacturers and maintenance providers could be held liable in such cases.
  • Fatigued Driving: Overly tired Drivers can experience reduced reaction times and impaired judgment. Fatigued driving is especially dangerous on long trips and is a significant cause of fatal accidents.

Helping Families Recover Financial Losses

Sometimes, the actions of careless motorists cannot be taken back. In cases in which a car accident leads to a fatality, surviving family members must find a way to cope with the loss and make ends meet while losing the income and support of the departed family member.

If you have lost a loved one in a fatal auto accident, pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit can often achieve the following:

  • Help your family get the financial resources needed to make it through this difficult time;
  • Help your family get answers as to how and why this accident took place;
  • Hold the responsible party to account; and
  • Deter others from acting in this irresponsible and destructive manner.

In pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit, you will likely encounter opposition from the negligent party’s insurance provider. The insurer will likely try to limit, delay, and outright deny the compensation to which you are entitled.

We will conduct a thorough investigation to determine the cause of the accident, who is liable, and the full extent of the financial damage your family has suffered. Our Las Vegas fatal car accident lawyers have a proven track record of success winning favorable legal results for people like you.
