Negligent Driving Causes Motor Vehicle Accidents

Car accidents happen every day in Los Angeles. In many cases, they are minor and no one involved requires medical attention. Sometimes, they truly are accidents. But unfortunately, many of the accidents that occur on the streets of Los Angeles are caused by negligent driving, and some of them result in serious injuries to the accident victims.

Negligent driving occurs when a person is careless in the operation of their motor vehicle. A negligent operation can include any of the following situations:


Distracted driving is a very dangerous situation. When a driver is not paying attention to his or her surroundings, they endanger everyone else on the road. Examples of distractions when driving can include texting, using cell phones or other electronic devices, eating, putting on make-up, or turning to look towards the backseat.


Excessive speed can also cause serious injuries when an accident occurs. Although speed alone is often not the only cause of an accident, it can worsen the injuries to the plaintiff and increase the chances that the driver will be unable to control the vehicle. When an out-of-control vehicle enters the roadway, all other drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists are at risk of catastrophic injuries.

Failure To Obey Rules of the Road:

Every driver has a responsibility to obey the rules of the road, including stop signs, lights, traffic signs, and the right of way. Failure to do so is negligent and often the cause of accidents.

Driving Under the Influence:

Drivers who operate their vehicles under the influence of drugs, alcohol, and some prescription medications are endangering the lives of others and themselves. Frequently, an individual driving safely has little to no opportunity to avoid reckless driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Driver Inattention or Inexperience:

Sometimes, there is no clear-cut reason for a person’s negligence. They are simply not paying attention or not experienced in the operation of a vehicle. Nevertheless, they are at fault if they caused the accident.
