What Causes Car Accidents?


What causes car accidents? This is an important issue to consider if you or someone you know was involved in an auto accident of any kind. These collisions are most frequently caused by driver negligence of some kind, such as driving while distracted or while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. However, in some cases an accident may be caused by a dangerous roadway or defective auto part. At Palumbo Wolfe & Palumbo, our Phoenix car accident lawyers handles all types of car accident claims and lawsuits for our clients.

We take on cases caused by virtually any type of negligence or wrongdoing, including:

  • Driving while distracted
  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding
  • Racing
  • Defective tires
  • Dangerous or defective auto parts
  • Dangerous or poorly maintained roads
  • Drunk driving
  • Aggressive driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Talking on the phone
  • Rubbernecking – looking at an accident that has already occurred


To accurately determine what has caused an accident, it may be necessary to work with accident reconstruction specialists, crash scene investigators, forensic experts and other qualified professionals who can investigate the scene and offer expert testimony regarding their findings. When you work with a personal injury attorney at our firm, you will find that we often involve these professionals and may also work with medical experts, psychologists and economists who can help us determine and then prove the full value of your claim. Call us today for help in your car accident case!
