Common Causes of Lakewood Auto Accidents
Car accidents happen every day and are caused by many factors, from inclement weather to speed. Careless driving is just one part of the equation. Sometimes, car accidents happen because of poor road infrastructure or an animal that darted out into the road. Understanding some of the more common causes of car accidents can underscore the need for a Lakewood auto accident attorney.
Auto Accidents Caused by Alcohol or Drugs
Alcohol-related accidents represent a large proportion of roadway deaths, auto accidents, and injuries. In 2018, there was one alcohol-impaired-driving fatality every 50 seconds.
If you’ve been injured in an auto accident caused by a drunk driver, you must find respected and aggressive representation fast.
Auto Accidents Caused by Speed and Negligence
Distracted or aggressive drivers, speeders, and more contribute greatly to Lakewood, Metro Denver, and beyond auto accidents. There were more than 9,700 fatalities related to speeding in 2017 alone.
The truth is that when negligent or distracted drivers injure our neighbors, we take it personally. We ensure that those responsible for causing an accident, and any subsequent injuries, are held accountable for their actions.
