What Are the Most Common Causes of Car Accidents in Houston?

In a recent year, the state of Texas reported nearly 4,500 car accident related deaths — more than 300 of which were in Houston. That made for the deadliest year on Texas roads in four decades. That same year saw more than 20,000 people across the state suffering serious injuries from motor vehicle accidents.

Many factors could lead to a car accident. These are some of the most common causes that we see at our car accident law firm:

Icon
Distracted Driving – Texting, eating, drinking, adjusting the radio, grooming, applying makeup, using a GPS while a vehicle is in motion
Icon
Driving Under the Influence  – Drunken driving, driving while high, operating a car on highly potent prescription medication or illegal substances
Icon
Reckless Driving – Blatantly disregarding traffic lights and road signs, erratically changing lanes, ignoring the speed limit
Icon
Fatigued or Drowsy Driving – Operating a vehicle while overtired or dozing off
Icon
Speeding – A dangerous practice, particularly in high-traffic areas like Houston, where cars are constantly entering, exiting, or changing lanes on I-69, I-45, I-10, and I-610
Icon
Tailgating – Following another car too closely and failing to maintain a safe distance, which can lead to a rear-end collision
Icon
Failure to Yield – Not yielding to the right-of-way, which puts other cars, pedestrians, cyclists, and others at risk 
Icon
 Failure to Stop  – Speeding through intersections before a light turns red or disregarding a stop sign
Icon
Inexperienced Drivers – Newer drivers not knowing what to do upon encounter hazardous road conditions, rapidly changing traffic conditions, or inclement weather
Icon
Unsafe Lane Changes – Changing lanes suddenly and unexpectedly, not signaling to alert other drivers, failure to check blind spots
Icon
Vehicle Defects – Defective vehicle parts that can cause an automobile to malfunction and make the driver lose control
