Posted by Jennifer Hodges Kahn | Jan 27, 2012 | 0 Comments

After a car accident, you may have an idea of what caused the incident, and it may have been 1 of 4 common driving behaviors often related to motor vehicle accidents. All are preventable. You need to know what to do after an auto accident like making notes of what was happening and why the accident occurred. This may help make your case when filing an insurance claim. Seeking advice from Houston lawyers who have handled personal injury and car accident claims may also help. 

Dangerous Driving Behaviors

The U.S. Department of Transportation reports 32,885 people died in motor vehicle crashes in 2010, and an additional 2,243,000 people were injured. Many of these accidents were caused by dangerous driving behaviors. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics: 
  • speeding killed 10,591 individuals in 2009;
  • drunk driving killed 10,228 people in 2010;
  • fatigue or drowsiness was involved in about 1 in 6 fatal crashes during 1999-2008; and
  • distraction-related driving caused 3,092 fatalities in 2010, which included dialing or texting on a cell phone and distractions by an outside person or event. 
These types of driving behaviors are dangerous and important to note after a car accident. Determining who and what caused the accident will be crucial in any legal case and insurance claim.
