We at Denton Injury Lawyers are strong advocates of responsible driving and public safety. This is why we always advise our clients here in the Denton County to be mindful of the road as many times they are responsible not only for their lives, but also for the welfare of others. Below are some of the most common causes of auto accidents that we encounter.

Distracted Driving

Phones, no longer limited to texting and calling, are now vital for entertainment, navigation, and even as part of people’s livelihood. This is why many drivers can’t resist taking a few glances at their screens once in a while on the road. Unfortunately, one quick look on the phone and one eye off the road can result to a serious accident. In fact, more than 10,000 crashes in Texas per year are caused by distracted driving.

Drunk Driving

Truth be told, drunk driving is no surprise as one of the leading causes of auto accidents in Texas. Let’s face it, once in a while we can say that there is no harm in having a bottle or two to relieve stress or sharing the day with friends while holding a mug. However, more than 14,000 people are being harmed every year because of drunk driving. If you are coming from a different place and are expected to drive, try considering other means of transportation instead of putting yourself and others at risk.

Speeding

Even if you are rushing, the Texas road is not part of a “Fast and Furious” scene. Excessive speed not only heightens the impact of any collision, it can also cause it too as drivers who over speed are prone to swerving and failing to see blind spots.
