What are the Consequences of Negligent Driving?

Every few years, the West Virginia Department of Transportation releases a special report outlining the causes and contributing factors leading to accidents on the road. About 40% of accidents are the result of a driver’s failure to maintain control of the vehicle. In some cases, this might be the result of road conditions. Texting while driving, distracted driving, driving while under the influence of alcohol and other drugs (DUI), or driving while sleepy can also lead to a person’s inability to maintain control of a vehicle.

Other contributing factors to accidents include:

  • Exceeding speed limits
  • Improper lane change
  • Failure to heed traffic signals
  • Failure to observe the right of way
  • Improperly reversing vehicle

Car accidents can result in a variety of injuries that can greatly affect a person’s quality of life. Head injuries can lead to memory loss, lost earning capacity, and loss of functioning in daily life. Back, neck, and spinal cord injuries can lead to loss of function and can result in years of required rehabilitation and care. Internal injuries occur when the impact force of the car affects the body’s organs. These injuries can cause long-term pain and suffering. Additionally, many people suffer from psychological injuries as a result of having been involved in a car accident.
