    It’s amazing how many ways that people can get into accidents. Below are some of the most, reasons that people have accidents on the road.

    Tailgating can result in someone needing an injury lawyer in St Fillans

    One of the most common reasons that people are in accidents is because they are tailgating the car in front of them. Simply put, they are following the car too closely. When a person is following the car in front of them too closely, they don’t allow themselves enough time to stop if the person in front of them stops. As a result, the person causes an accident.

    Not paying attention can result in someone needing an injury lawyer in St Fillans

    There’s so many people on the road today that are paying attention to everything but their driving. They’re listening to music, they’re eating food, there talking with their friends in the seat next to them, their texting, there talking on the cell phone. It’s no wonder that there are so many accidents on the road.

    Driving while intoxicated can result in someone needing an injury lawyer in St Fillans

    Even though most people think of intoxication is being a result of being drunk, intoxication can come in many forms. Some people don’t even know that there intoxicated. For example, there are some medications that will cause symptoms similar to being drunk. It’s a good idea to look at the packaging on a medication that you’re taking. Generally it will say whether it will cause drowsiness or it will impair your ability to use machinery.

    Poor weather conditions can result in someone needing an injury lawyer in St Fillans

    Although most people will say that they have no control over the weather, and that’s true, people do have control over when and if they go out driving. When the weather brings snow, rain, ice, sleet, or fog, it’s best not to drive if you don’t have to. With reduced visibility and other issues related to bad weather, it’s best to stay off the road.

    Defects in the road can result in someone needing an injury lawyer in St Fillans

    When there are defects in the roadway, this often will lead to accidents. Things like potholes, bent stop signs, or obscured signs can all lead to car accidents.

    Construction can result in someone needing an injury lawyer in St Fillans

    Another big contributor to rear end collisions is when there is construction in the road. This also goes back to not paying attention. People don’t look at the signs that there’s construction ahead, or there are no signs posted that there is construction ahead, and they stop abruptly when they find out about the construction.

    Brake lights not working can result in someone needing an injury lawyer

    When someone is driving a car and their brake lights are not working, this will often cause a rear end collision because a person behind them does not know that they are braking. This doesn’t happen very often, but does happen and it does cause accidents.
