Motor vehicle accidents are more likely to cause personal injuries than any other type of accident. The results of the automobile crash can be devastating, not only for the individuals physically involved in the incident, but also for the accident victim’s family and friends. Moreover, the effects of being involved in an automobile accident can be permanent in nature and last a lifetime, making it even more important to immediately seek legal advice as quickly as possible.
Human Errors Leading to Motor Vehicle Accidents
Today, almost everyone owns a cell phone or other form of mobile device. Unfortunately, the common uses of these mobile devices while driving has led directly to an increase of car accidents. It is not uncommon for the lawyers at Shiner Law Group to uncover evidence that their clients were injured as a direct result of a negligent driver using their cell phone to text, email, or snapchat while driving. In our years of experience representing victims in car wreck cases, we have seen a myriad of different reasons for car wrecks, however, just some of the most common causes of car, truck, bus, and motorcycle accidents today include:
- Distracted Driving (Texting, Phone Use, Eating, Drinking, Reading, etc.)
- Driving Fatigue
- Intoxication Caused by Drug, Alcohol, or Prescription Use
- Poor/Aggressive Driving Habits (not stopping at red lights or stop signs, speeding, and failure to use turn signals)
External Causes Leading to Motor Vehicle Accidents
In addition to human error, a number of circumstances can lead to an unfortunate motor vehicle accident on the roadway. Especially in busy South Florida, it is important to be aware of your surroundings and other drivers when traveling on the road.

- Bad weather such as thunder storms, sun showers, and tropical storms or hurricanes
