What Are the Common Causes of Car Accidents?

Car accidents can happen anywhere, anytime, and for many different reasons. Some of the most common causes of car accidents include:

  • Speeding: Speeding is one of the leading causes of car accidents in the United States. When a driver is traveling above the speed limit, they have less time to react to changes in traffic patterns or road conditions.
  • Distracted driving: Distracted driving is another common cause of car accidents. When a driver is texting, talking on the phone, eating, or talking to passengers, they are not giving their full attention to the road.
  • Drunk driving: Drunk driving is a major problem across the country. When a driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs, their ability to make quick decisions and react to changes in traffic is impaired.
  • Reckless driving: Reckless driving can include speeding, tailgating, running red lights, and more. A driver can be held responsible for an accident if they were driving in a way that put others at risk.

If you were injured in a car accident, our High Point car accident attorneys can help. We can investigate the cause of the accident and help you hold the at-fault party responsible for your injuries.

Is North Carolina a Fault-Based State?

In North Carolina, a fault-based system governs car accidents, wherein the driver deemed responsible for causing the accident is liable for covering the resulting damages.

The state also follows a contributory negligence rule. This means that if a plaintiff is found to be even partially at fault for the accident, they may be barred from recovering any damages. Contributory negligence is a stricter standard compared to comparative negligence, which allows for the recovery of damages even if the plaintiff is partially at fault.

How Long Do I Have to File a Car Accident Claim in North Carolina?

In North Carolina, you have three years from the date of the accident to file a car accident claim. If you do not file your claim within this time frame, the court will likely refuse to hear your case.

Do I Need a Lawyer for a Car Accident That Wasn't My Fault?

If you were involved in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, you may assume that you can handle the claim on your own. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Insurance companies are always looking for ways to minimize their costs and may not offer you the compensation you deserve.

Having a car accident lawyer on your side can help you:

  • Prove liability
  • Calculate the full extent of your damages
  • Negotiate with the insurance company
  • Represent you in court, if necessary

At Comerford Chilson & Moser, L.L.P., our High Point car accident lawyers have a thorough understanding of North Carolina’s personal injury laws. We can help you seek the maximum compensation you are entitled to and will fight for your rights from start to finish.
