Motor Vehicle Accidents
Ever heard or been involved in a motor vehicle accident? At a point in your life, one or the other must have happened because they’re so rampant in Canada and the same case is true for all over the world. These are accidents caused by and involving all kinds of cars, vans, and trucks. Various statistical data carried out proves that these cases are so high that towards the end of the year and every beginning of the year marking both the months of December and January, the numbers of car accidents and their casualties shoot up especially because of the change in climatic conditions and other factors, which are mostly a result of carelessness.
Every year, hospitals swarm with motor vehicle accidents, and while they’re so common everywhere, they can also be so deadly or hold serious injuries. Many personal injury victims for motor vehicle accidents have lost their sight because of acid corrosion, lost their feet because of amputation either in the accident site or in the hospital because of pressing conditions caused by the accident and even lost their hands. Those who’ve survived have lived to tell a story of how something so little turned deadly in a matter of seconds.
What are the causes of these accidents? Could the causes lead you in the direction of compensation? Most definitely, yes! Finding out the causes of these accidents or rather, establishing them puts you and also puts us in a position to tell whether you can or cannot get compensated on your personal injury claims.
The following are some of the major causes:
Human causes. These are usually intentional or unintentional causes, both by a fellow person, which in most cases could have been avoided were they careful enough. They include but are not limited to reckless or careless driving, negligence, over-speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol and or drug substance, and even fatigue. While all these can be avoided, most people still cause accidents on a daily basis due to the stated factors.
Natural causes. These are causes that even if a driver wanted to avoid, they might not be able to because of the natural nature of the causative factor. They may include but are not limited to bad weather, harsh climatic conditions spanning a long time like is the case during winter, and even earthquakes, which are rare cases. While these accidents seem to be entirely uncontrollable, they’re mostly coupled up with some human factors, that’s why not all accidents that happen due to bad weather go unpunished. You may find that a driver over sped during bad weather and as a result, caused an accident.
Road construction defects. These are construction defects that leave road users susceptible to road accidents. They usually demand a high level of care when driving, which is sadly not something most drivers in Canada can do. They include but are not limited to steep road terrains, sharp bends, and even slim road widths. Just like natural causes, these road construction defects are usually coupled with some human cause for an accident to happen, say for example a driver overtook another vehicle on a sharp bend.
Vehicle defects. These are defects on the vehicle that may or may not be a direct cause of the accident. However, most defects cannot be used as a defense because the driver will be regarded as negligent for not figuring out that the vehicle they were driving was defective. You’ll also find that most drivers who cause accidents because of vehicle defects knew beforehand that their vehicles had an issue, but they neglected it anyway. This cause is therefore most closely connected to negligence.
