VA Car Accident Attorney Explains Why Crashes Occur

Guidance from an experienced car accident lawyer in Fairfax, Roanoke, Manassas and all of Virginia

During his more than 25 years of practice, Virginia car accident lawyer Michael A. Kernbach, Attorney at Law, has seen the devastation caused by auto accidents. He is familiar with the reasons these crashes occur and the simple steps people can take to make the roadways safer for everyone.

Virginia car accident attorney focused on prevention

Most accidents are preventable. However, one reckless action can result in serious injuries or death. Recognizing the common causes can help you avoid a car crash. These types of negligence are responsible for many of the accidents that occur daily:

  • Distracted driver
  • Drunken driving
  • Failure to yield
  • Mechanical malfunction
  • Poorly maintained road
  • Road rage
  • Roadway debris
  • Slick roads
  • Speeding
  • Texting while driving

You may not be able to prevent another person from acting negligently, but defensive driving techniques can save you from an accident. Stay clear of motorists who are swerving or driving too fast, slow down if road or weather conditions are poor, and maintain your car’s brakes and tires properly.

Road rage accidents and criminal negligence

A person’s outburst of anger while behind the wheel can transform a vehicle into a deadly weapon. Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol also creates an extremely dangerous situation. A person who injures another person while engaging in criminally negligent behavior may face prosecution in addition to civil liability.  If you have been the victim of a road rage, an aggressive driver incident or a DUI accident, contact a qualified car accident lawyer in Virginia to pursue damages.
