Common Causes of Accidents on Elk Grove Roadways
When you are involved in an accident, you may be wondering why this happened and what someone was thinking to put you in such a position. It is not always easy to understand why accidents, especially devastating ones, occur. Yet, we can often draw this back to what drivers are doing and experiencing that puts them at risk of causing accidents, including the following common causes.
Distracted Driving in Elk Grove
Distracted driving is a serious problem that impacts Elk Grove and other communities in the area. With people as busy as ever, there is an increase in the number of accidents due to distractions from texting to talking on the phone to eating, applying makeup, or just holding a conversation with another person. Distractions can easily lead to all types of accidents, including head-on collisions that can be deadly.
Speeding and improper signaling are also common causes of accidents on area roadways. These reckless driving behaviors go hand-in-hand with tailgating. Accidents due to reckless driving can easily lead to serious injuries that require extensive medical attention.
Increased Congestion Numbers
Increased traffic in many areas of Elk Grove has contributed to the onset of injuries as people continue to need to get from one place to the next efficiently but struggle to do so. There are some people who believe traffic patterns related to the timing of lights could make improvement possible, while others are calling for more drivers to use public transportation. The key is that if you drive along many of this city’s streets, the risk of being involved in an accident (and even just running late) is high.

Who Is Responsible When an Accident Happens?
When an accident occurs on Elk Grove highways and roadways, the person responsible is the individual who hit the other driver. When this happens, it notes that the person failed to have and maintain control over their vehicle, and that means that they did not meet the expectations under the law. However, there are many circumstances in which this is not clear.
When you contact and work with our car accident attorneys in Elk Grove, we can help determine responsibility in a case like this by looking at all of the factors involved, including evidence at the scene and witness statements. We also look at data from police reports, toxicology reports if applicable, and communication logs or phone records. All of this information can provide a clear understanding of what is really happening and why this accident occurred.
With this information, it is then possible to pursue compensation from those who put you in such a situation, helping you to get your medical bills paid for and compensation for the other losses you have. Whether it is a trucking company, another driver’s insurance company, or even the city that failed to provide safe roads, we work tirelessly to showcase who is responsible for your losses. Then, we will work to get you the compensation owed.
