Duty of Care Owed

While you recognize that you are responsible for following the rules of the road and allowing for the safe passage of other people on the road when you get behind the wheel, you may not realize that this amounts to what the law considers a duty of care owed. In fact, auto accident injury claims are based on negligence in relation to this duty of care. This means that if a motorist’s negligence causes you to be injured and to, as a result, incur legal damages (or losses), you have the makings of an auto accident injury claim (or auto accident injury case if the insurance company refuses to negotiate in good faith and you file a lawsuit in response). 

The Other Driver’s Negligence

Driver negligence is generally at the heart of car accidents, and such negligence can take all the following dangerous forms (in addition to simply not following the rules of the road):

  • Distraction – In order to drive safely, motorists must carefully attend to everything that is happening on the road around them. Failure to do so can cause life-threatening accidents. It’s important to note that texting behind the wheel is the most dangerous driving distraction going. 
  • Impairment – You know that if you’re going to be having a few drinks, you need to make plans other than driving. When motorists refuse to heed this important safety rule, they make dangerous accidents on our roadways far more likely. 
  • Exhaustion – Drivers who get too little sleep suffer driving impairments that are similar to those suffered by drunk drivers, making drowsy driving exceptionally dangerous. 
  • Excess Speed – Speed is one of the variables that consistently shows up in fatal car accident statistics. In fact, not only does driving too fast make car accidents more likely to happen in the first place, but it also makes the car accidents themselves more likely to be deadly. It’s important to note that drivers must adjust their speed in relation to whatever is happening on the road at the time, including factoring in the condition of the road generally and the adverse effects of bad weather on it.
